Beautiful | Pink Paislee | Step-by-step | My Creative Scrapbook

Hello friends! In this post I'm sharing a step-by-step of my "Beautiful" layout, created for My Creative Scrapbook with their September Main Kit.

This is the layout I created: 

I'm a huge fan of Pink Paislee and totally adore this month's kit featuring the Auburn Lane collection! I love it so much I didn't want to "spill" any papers and used my kit very carefully. The reason I'm telling you this, is that this is how I came up with the idea for this design, using only 1 sheet of paper: paper 07.

I really like the design of paper 07 with all the small triangles and decided I wanted to use the geometrical idea of this paper, but not necessarily limited to triangles. I toyed with some ideas and decided on the diamond shape.  

First I cut off strips of paper of 3 "rows" wide, like this:

Next I cut diamond shapes consisting of 6 triangles wide and 6 triangles long. After cutting the first, I used that one as a template to cut the rest of the diamond shapes:

I found that I really wanted smaller diamond shapes as well and cut a few of those too. Because the papers in the Auburn Lane collection are all double sided I automatically had diamond shapes in 2 different designs:

Placing the shapes this way and that, I decided on this design:

Using just a tiny bit of adhesive I glued the shapes to the cardstock, so I could always rearrange them later-on. I added my photo, a journaling card from paper 01 and some die-cuts & stickers and when I was happy with the way the layout looked I used my sewing machine to stitch the shapes permanently to my page. 

This is it! Really very easy! Hope you like it!

  1. As for my non-Platonism and EDA - the concern is that the foundation of thought, logic, remains unfounded. While one does not assume that logic exists in the world, one has to assume logic in order to talk about the world. This is not the only direction of thought that leads to this conclusion, but it's still a disturbing realization.
