This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of ideas. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melissa’s Blog.
To me, paper layering means using a variety of products, from various collections, that all complement each other and use them on a single paper crafting project. This is my FAVORITE way to create.♥ I enjoy being able to just grab from my stash when construct a layout, like this Snow Cute page.
To often, we grab a background paper, like the one from Holly Jolly here, and think that we need to only using Holly Jolly products, without noticing that the Mix-Ins and Cedar & Pine have embellishments that match perfectly. When I am designing my layouts, I don’t even pay attention to the product line, I simply snag & grab everything that coordinates with my photo and create.
If you look at the title of my layout, you will see that I used a combination of Complete Creativity Cricut™ cuts and stickers from the Cedar & Pine Collection, yet the paper is from the Holly Jolly collection. These both match my photos and coordinate♥ with each other.
If you take a hard look at the other side of the layout, you will notice Cricut™ cuts from Flower Market, Your Are Here, & Complete Creativity along with stickers from the Holly Jolly collection. Every piece I chose for this layout complements each other and the photos♥ I am trying to highlight. If you like, you can watch this short process video, and watch how I put together this Snow Cute page.

Fantastic layout! I love how you mixed the papers and all you layers!!
Thank you, Cat. I don’t often share my own layouts – I don’t really follow any of the rules. 😉
This is the best layout, I am totally in love. You never cease to amaze me with your creativity.
You are too kind. I am just happy to be scrapbooking again.
Carrie, You are truly an ‘artist’ …one that can take bits and pieces of different paper crafting materials and tools and put together an eye-pleasing and very interesting piece to showcase your photos. Great LO!
