Designer’s Choice: Amazing Little Moments

Hello there! Allie here today, sharing a layout using the January Love Notes kit. I loved the beautiful Pink Paislee Moonstruck squares paper, and couldn’t wait to use it on my page!


I wanted the square patterned paper to be my background, so I cut the individual squares out using my paper trimmer. I laid them out on a white piece of cardstock, angling them in different directions for an imperfect look. Once I glued all the squares down, I stitchd a sheet of vellum over the top to further tone down the business. I adhered the vellum using adhesive in a few random spots before I sewed it down. You can see the adhesive, but I’m okay with that. It’s perfectly imperfect! Next, I used a doily and the B side of the squares paper as layers to my photo. I added some ephemera pieces included in the main kit and in the Hot Stuff add on.I stitched down my title, and the layout was complete!


I had so much fun using that gorgeous patterned paper to create my layout! Using vellum over a busy pattern is one of my favorite background techniques. I hope you feel inspired to use a busy paper as a background!
