Less is More Layout Share

Part of my life after 5:00 pm, I design layouts for my lovely scrapbook store for kits that the store sells. We sell double page kits. It is fun to have a kit and create from just what is in front of me. Sometimes, it is lots of embellishments and few papers and sometimes it is the reverse, many papers and little embellishments. I love my after 5:00 job!

This is a layout, I fell in love with. The kit for the Authentique Anchored layout included papers with a package of Fancy Pants buttons and two Bella Blvd stick flags and generic twine. I love how it came together. I get so excited manipulating paper to make it into something fun. 

What I did to the paper:
**I created most of the photo mats and cards to appear as "waves". I pop dotted certain corners and curled others to create a gentle movement across the two page spread.
**I punched holes through some of the half inch paper strips and threaded crochet thread through the holes for a nautical theme.
**I cut 2x2 squares and snipped them into flags, punch tole and threaded with blue twine to put across top of page (as if they were fluttering in the wind).

Just a happy share on a minimalist embellished layout that is just as fun, in my opinion, as a heavy embellished layout!

Thanks for stopping by, Tisha :)
