Description: I was inspired by a layout Nicole Samuels made for Studio Calico back in July using layered paper strips in a spiraled square - I wanted to try the same technique but using triangles instead! Patterned paper is the most basic embellishment in scrapbooking! There is more patterned paper than any other supply and therefore I have accumulated quite a bit of it! I couldn't wait to scrap my stash of the brand new Flea Market collection by Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper. The colors are so rich and bold definitely needed a white background to pop off the page. I have a hard time with just plain white cardstock though, so I livened it up with spray misting over doilies to leave an intricate pattern on which to layer my patterned paper strips. Continuing with the triangle theme and the rule of a “visual triangle” I wrote the journaling in the tips of one of the paper triangles so in three different places which draws the eyes all around the layout. A few additional details like a Thickers title and resin flowers finish up the layout. It looks pretty complicated, but actually only took about 30-45 minutes from start to finish!

Journaling says:
If I had to sum you in one word it would definitely be ‘happy’. Ever since you were born you've been happy and smiley and almost always content! We sure love you!

How to: The video shows how to create the layout from start to finish. Here it is written: Place doily masks on three edges of a white cardstock layout background then spray over the doilies using blue, pink, and yellow most. Drop darker shades of the same colors of ink over the masks then remove the masks and let the cardstock dry. Trim 1/4" pieces of patterned paper and vellum. Adhere the strips into triangles then spiral them over the center of the layout. Layer a square photo over a gold doily then a regular doily, then on the middle of the layout. Trim a chipboard doily in half and tuck the halves under the regular doily. Place a royal blue glittered Thickers title in a curve around the bottom right corner of the photo. Add three resin flowers under the title and stamp the date below. Write journaling in the tips of one triangle so in three different places. Adhere a gold chipboard photo corner to each corner of the layout.

Supplies: Cardstock, glitter letter stickers, date stamp, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, patterned vellum, chipboard (doily, photo corners), resin flowers, doily die cut: Crate Paper; Doily masks: Prima; Doily: Wilton; Spray mist: Studio Calico
