Use Your Stuff - Scraplift Sunday!

Hello, my friends! I am (the other) Rachel here on the Paper Issues Design Team and I am so thrilled to be sharing my first project with you as a team member! Today we are scraplifting a gorgeous layout by Sindi. I love the simplicity and sparkle her layout has and I was super inspired by those “bursts” coming off of the photo, so I decided to take my own unique spin on it.

I am a huge advocate of using up your stash and not hoarding it away (even though sometimes it seems cringe-worthy when we cut into that beloved Maggie Holmes floral - just do it and use it and stick it down!), so that is exactly what I did for this layout.

To start, I used a good ol’ pencil and ruler to draw those “bursts” and then filled them with some delicious and colourful Amy Tangerine stickers and embellishments - sorting them by colour, of course, because that’s just way too much fun! I added corresponding watercolour splatters, minimal journaling, a few paint splatters, and then it was done, just like that! If you know my style at all, you know I love to layer ripped paper behind my photo. This time I added tissue paper! 

There really wasn't much thinking about it - you just stick and plonk! I feel so good about using up some of my favourite Amy Tangerine stickers (from "Better Together" + "Finders Keepers") and being able to show them off on this layout - you can find them HERE in the shop. Give it a try and share it with us on the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} page because I would love to see! You'll even have a chance to win a gift card to the Paper Issues shop - how cool is that?! Click HERE to access the album where all the entries are to be submitted. Good luck!!! 

If you would like to see the process video, I have a YouTube channel where you can watch step by step as to how I put this together
