For the first layout, I used Bloom & Grow to create a quilt pattern across the page. I was inspired by this image on Pinterest!
To create the quilt pieces, I used a square punch and cut them in half from corner to corner. I started in the middle, and just copied the quilt design until my background was complete. I stitched the triangles down to add to the quilt look, and give dimension to my page. Once I was done with the background, I added my photos, title, and embellishments!
For my second layout, my goal was to mix Sunshine & Happiness with You Are Here!
I cut strips from the patterned papers of both collections, and varied them in size and length. I arranged them on my page, and then sewed them down. I left the ends of the thread dangling for a messier look. The theme of the page was Disneyland, so I kept the colors bright and cheery. I used the You Are Here! frames for my photos, as well as a cute phrase from Sunshine & Happiness.
I loved the travel themed wood veneers, and added them to my page. The colors from the two collections coordinate so well!
