Making your Own Patterned Paper:: A Scrapbooking Tutorial by Ashli Oliver

making your own patterned paper:: a scrapbooking tutorial by ashli oliver @

Every now and then a collection comes along that I find to be complete perfection. From the colors, to the icons… I have most recently fallen head over heels in love with the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer collection.

While my budget wouldn’t allow for me to purchase every single item, I was able to pick up several things… most importantly the stamp set. This will allow me to stretch the look of this collection and to make some patterns of my own. Let’s have a look…

That was super fun! I hope this has inspired you to embrace what you love in a collection and to make the most of it in your crafting!

So, next time you head to your crafty space, grab some stamps, an inspiring collection, and craft up some patterns that you can call your own!

    Wondering what kind of paper and watercolors you are using. (Could not find the product listing…)

  18. soapHOUSEmama Says:

    Hi Rhonda! I used Bazzill white non-textured card stock and a basic watercolor palette from my local craft store chain. I hope this helps! Thanks!

  20. Tamara Says:

    What a gorgeous layout. I love all the details and the subtle colours. The Thickers are great, too. Which ones are these?

  21. soapHOUSEmama Says:

    Thanks Tamara! The Thickers are “Kitten” – part of the “My Girl” collection. Hope this helps :)

  22. Jeannine H Says:

    This is a super page and I loved seeing the technique. I also particularly like that it is a way to use a stamp set you like but can’t figure out how to use all the images. Perhaps a bit of an enabling strategy but that’s OK with scrapbooking. Thanks.
