Hi, my name is Paige, and I’m addicted to patterned paper! (Hi Paige!). The more patterned paper I can use on a layout, the better! For this layout I wanted to create a semi-background of mini envelopes using most of the papers in the lovely Shimelle collection.
Die cut fifteen small envelopes from patterned papers.
Fold the envelopes on the score lines.
Glue the envelopes so they hold their shape.
Start building your layout with the envelopes down the center in a 3 × 5 grid. Try tucking small embellishments into the envelopes. Consider adding journaling on a tag in one of them.
Choose a background paper or cardstock then glue everything in place. I usually use cardstock for my backgrounds, but I love the subtle woodgrain pattern of the “Hall” paper.
