I love pattern paper. (No kidding, right?) Despite all my stamps and the new masks I've been buying to do my own designs, I just can't resist pretty paper. One of my favorite things to do with pattern paper is to cut along the design either in a border or to cut out elements for embellishment.
I also love to have the elements of my page support the story. Designer paper can help with that. In this layout, we visited a coffee/wine bar and shops in 1920's era building. I selected papers and those great Cosmo Cricket buttons that reminded me of the era.
The business card is from one of the places we visited. It includes the name of the area and the colors match perfectly - just luck on that one.
Here is the journaling. The font is Harlow which reminds me of this 20's era.
So today's video uses this sketch and focuses on how to use the designs of your paper and reinforce your page's theme:

Note about Project Life: I'm saving up my photos to do a two week page and post the page and video next week. So keep snapping away and stay tuned...
During CHA last week, I watched a lot of the product videos. My favorite new collections of paper - not that I need it but you can tell I won't be able to resist - is My Mind's Eye Collectible series. Do you have a favorite pattern paper company?
Thanks for visiting this week!
