I used the Jillibean soup "Egg Drop Soup" collection to create this layout. I absolutely adore these papers for 3 reasons.
1.) The adorable Easter theme is just perfect for all of my son's Easter themed photos that I took this year.
2.) The whole collection includes an assortment of patterned papers that have fun shapes to cut out.
3.) I have to admit that I'm a little biased when it comes to the name of the company, Jillibean Soup, since it has my name in it! :)
I cut 5 umbrellas out of the patterned paper to use as embellishments on my layout. I used pop dots to adhere them to the page to give the umbrellas even more dimension.
Here are a few more examples of some projects that I have created recently using the fussy cutting technique:
I also created two more pages using two of Pam's Page Templates. I absolutely adore her page templates! They are all so different and original. They are so easy to use as well! I scrapped more of my son's Easter photos using Basic Grey's "Green At Heart" collection. Even though this collection isn't actually Easter themed I think the colors are just perfect for Easter and Springtime. As you can see I did a little bit of "fussy cutting" when I created these layouts as well, I cut out a bunch of the little purple butterflies to arrange on both of the layouts.
Thank you so much! I hope this gives everyone even more ideas on how to creatively use their patterned paper stash. I know that all of us scrapbookers hoard patterned paper like crazy, but the more patterned paper that we use up, the more NEW paper we get to buy! :)
