Product Focus: Pattern Papers!
Hello, friends! With so many beautiful pattern papers in each collection, we wanted to feature them in today’s post! Here are some ways to use pattern papers in your designs.

Audrey Medd: Build Your Layout with Layers of Paper

Hello Daisies! This month I challenged myself to use as much of the Spice Market Classified: Memory Keeping Kit as I could. And I was successful in this layout! I started with some of the paper from the Spice Market Classified: Memory Keeping Kit. I ripped them in a ripple pattern and then placed them on my blank 12x12 page. By doing this I was able to create a 12x12 page from the kit.   I then dipped into my Spice Market Modern Memory Keeping Kit and found a 3x4 pocket card that went well with my story. I have been trying to use the pocket cards in non-traditional ways. Finally, I ended the layout with the embellishments found in theSpice Market Classified: Memory Keeping Kit. I loosely ran them down the center of the page in a pattern. I also used some stamps from the Spice market collection. And to finish it off, I used the letter stickers from the kit for my title. Cheers!  

Rachel Newman: Pattern Paper in a Memory Planner, Three Ways

The pattern papers in the Daisy Fields Collection were meant for adding interest and function to you memory planning spreads. Here are three I utilized them in the layout. First, I covered the “Week Of” title and a large area of white space with one of the pattern papers from the Daisy Fields Classified: Memory Keeping Kit. The pattern paper was a perfect place to stamp the month using the set from the Spice Market Traveler's Notebook Memory Keeping Kit. The pattern papers also make great mattes from photos. Here I used to papers to matte my photos and included embellishment clusters, too. If you need a little more room for photos or journal, the pattern papers in this collection are perfect for making flips and folders. Here, I used the pattern paper to make a flip to include some hidden journaling. I was able to create a fasten for the top by using an craft knife to trim a semi circle into the paper. For this day, I created a small folder with a bone folder to make flap that I adhered down. This provided a place to tuck a few extra photos. The folder was also the perfect matte for my photo, too!
