It's all about paper

Today I am sharing 2 recent layouts and I have noticed that with less options for scrapbooking products and embellishments, I am creating my own embellishments more and more by paper piecing and fussy cutting from patterned papers. For my first layout I have used the gorgeous tropical DCWV Watercolor Stack and the background is DCWV Embossed White Stack. I used Sketch #170 from Sketch Savvy

I hand cut the sunshine from one of the papers, hand cut out a flamingo, and used my silhouette to cut out the palm frond and title from patterned papers.

My second layout uses some older Journey paper by Crate Paper and I used smaller pieces that I fringe cut. Its a great way to use up scraps and create texture and interest. I hand cut the feathers from one of the papers. I also decided to start trying to use my Cricut to cut more Disney characters for my pages so I cut out Meeko and the title.

You do such a creative job on your own embellishments. I love the outline around that paper starburst, for example. Lovely details on both.
