We all love the Mommy Lhey cardstock papers, so I thought why not deconstruct one of the papers to create layering elements in my layout. I begin this layout by laying out all of the stickers from the June box; I quickly realized there are actually themes within the theme of the box. I decided I wanted to create two different themes, one using the palm leaves and the other side of the layout using the pineapples. Mommy Lhey puts so much thought in each of these kits.
Once I had my themes picked out I decide to mix in some of the puff sticker to add depth to the page. When creating smaller layouts, I like to use my sticker placement as a guide to draw my attention to a specific task. After all of my stickers are placed and my text is filled in I still feel like my page is missing my normal flair.
I look over and pick out two of the June cardstock papers that will match my layout. I choose the pineapple paper and the palm leaf paper because they matched my pages perfectly. I begin to fussy cut a few of the palm leaves from the paper and decide I want to add them as a divider in this layout. I was still missing something on my pineapple spread so I cut a large pineapple from my paper and added a puff sticker to draw attention to the corner of my layout.
Creating die cuts from the Mommy Lhey cardstock is a great way to use left over paper scraps.
I hope this post has given you some fresh ideas on how to use your cardstock paper, until next time.
