I like the scaled down patterns on 6x6 paper pads. I like getting all the papers in a collection and I like the price point. So, I've been following along with a series called Hip to be Square on Lisa Runkin Swift's blog. There are some good ideas there so it's worth the time to look.
In keeping with that theme I thought I would share this layout that I did a couple of months ago.
All of the patterns, including the border which is joined under the layers, are from a 6x6 pad. I think they are all Bayberry Cottage but there might be a piece of Queen Bee there too. The brown chunk is from an old 8x8 pad. Does anyone make that size anymore?
The squares made me think of stamps so I got out the old deco scissors and gave them the "stamp" border.
In other news:
I'm feeling like a bit of a dork today. I was so proud of my homemade stamps until last night when I found a video by Julie Fei-Fan Baltzer.

Naturally hers are way cooler so I'm itching to try. It has been a while since I created any smoking globs of melted plastic. I wonder how toxic the fumes are from melted craft foam?
Anyways, Thank for stopping by and have a great day
