Happy Monday friends !!!!  Did you all have a fun weekend celebrating pre- Halloween ??? I am not to big into the holiday, crazy right !!!  Over the weekend I printed some photos from the last weekends Be Crafty workshop with my new polaroid printer ( i’ll be sharing more on our workshop tomorrow  ) .

After I printed a bunch of photos .. I mean once you start it’s hard to stop, I did some paper crafting with Maggie Holmes new Gather paper collection.

It’s been awhile since I have shared a page layout so I thought I would share a little of what I am working on.  

Over the last couple years I have learned I do much better when I start out with a small sized paper as my base rather then a full 12×12. I started my page layout by cutting my paper to fit inside my binder which is 8×6.5 . I gathered a few papers and embellishments from the Gather collection and began layering them together.

One of my favorite techniques to use is my sewing machine to combine papers together. I love the texture the sewing thread adds to my page.

This page was so fun to create and I just love all  the bright bold colors used in the Gather collection .

If you have been nervous to try creating page layouts, I am here to tell you to give it a try. I wasn’t sure I could do it in the beginning and now I love creating them.  Sometimes it just takes a little time to find what works best for you !!!!
