Below is a step by step on how I created the happy layout.
First mat my pattern paper on cardstock leaving 1/4 inch boarder peeking out.
( I always like to matt on cardstock for stiffness)
I choose another piece of pattern paper and cut 3 2 inch strips. I then cut the strips and made ribbon tails on one end of each strips. As you see I one strip is shorter than the other for a staggered look.. Then used the opposite side of the strip to add another going across the first two as shown in the photo..
Using another pattern paper I used my salad plate from the kitchen to trace the circle. I then cut that out and placed it on top as shown.
Above and the ribbon tail strip I Placed pieces from the collection and layered as shown. I also used dollies from my stash to tuck in behind the cluster.
I also added clusters of flowers as you see here along with some buttons.
(In the finished layout you will see I moved the bottom flower cluster to be able to fit my photos..)
Have fun creating with your kits..They have some many bits and pieces to play with.
