Pattern Play with Guest Danielle Dunlop

We are so excited to welcome our August guest to the blog today, Danielle Dunlop! To say that Danielle is talented in many areas is an understatement! Take a look at her Instagram feed and you’ll see that Danielle creates colorful and beautifully designed cards and layouts with gorgeous details, and the project that she is sharing with us today is no exception. Let’s take a look at how Danielle used our August 2021 kit and add-ons!

Hi Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Danielle with you today and I’m thrilled to be a guest designer here this month. The August kit is filled with beautiful colors that you can use for almost every subject and as always there are some amazing matching stamp sets available. I decided to make a layout about my first day paddle boarding a couple weeks ago.

It was the You Got This Stamp that started the design of my layout. Besides all the encouraging sentiments in this set, there is also a half circle solid and striped stamp. With these stamps I created a border on the right side of my page. The Chipboard Circle Stickers also have half circles and I used these to highlight some of the stamped circles.

I used some of the striped half-circles of the Chipboard Circle Stickers on the left of my layout to repeat the pattern and to balance it out.

The teal paper in the Good Times Paper Stack is my favorite and it has some big sentiments on it already, so my layout didn’t need a title on it’s own. I added the Proud Of You Die Cuts, August Labels and die cuts from the August Kit.

I always love to add sentiment stamps! On this page I used sentiments from the You Got This Stamp and the Lined Labels Stamp. I finished off the layout by adding texture with the Positive Vibes and Smile Wood Veneers.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I can’t wait to see what you all will create with the August 2021 kit and add-ons!

My name is Danielle and together with my husband and our fur baby Blink we live on a tiny remote Caribbean island called Saba. We have our own restaurant here, which keeps us busy, but I will always need my creative time. I like to try new creative hobbies all the time, but scrapbooking is the one thing I have been doing for about 20 years now. My pages are either clean or they get real messy when I use mixed media. 

Find more of Danielle’s designs on her Instagram feed until she returns to inspire us later this month!
