Springtime Circles with Ashley Laura

We love the beautiful colors and patterns in our newest paper stack, the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack, and today, design team member Ashley Laura is here to show us how she’s using, and cutting these pretty patterns to create something special! Let’s take a look!

Hey y’all! It’s Ashley here, back with a fun project focusing on the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack from the recent March release! I am SO excited to be using these beautiful patterned papers! I love finding new ways to use patterns, but I also love cutting up paper in fun layers to create an inspiring, yet simple project for others to recreate.

I have an ancient circle-cutter tool in my stash and I just had to pull it out for this project. I started playing with the patterns in the Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack to see how I wanted them layered. Quick tip: If you are using a white background, make sure to use a more solid pattern as your bottom layer so that whites do not clash, ultimately looking as if your circle is cut off.

I knew I had this “springy” photo in my stash of my daughter acting fashionable while we were out shopping. I knew I had to create a layout using this photo, mainly because we were specifically shopping for spring clothes, but also because she is precious. (I’m aware that I am biased!)

I love adding my daughter’s initials to photos and projects. I never really thought about how important this was until I was looking through my parent’s old photos and I caught myself asking “who is this,” when referring to different siblings. What better way to add initials than with the Large Jane Alphabet Stamp and Metal Die? I also added a little stitching for extra texture.  

I’ll be the first to say that I am not much of a journaler. I just can’t seem to love my handwriting on a layout. My quick-fix for that is using my typewriter to add some sweet words to go along with the photo.

Grab your Springtime 6 x 6 Paper Stack and your punches, circle cutter, or any other crafty tool that you have in your stash and create something unusual with your patterned paper! Thanks for stopping by!
