4PP&1SS | Four Patterned Papers and One Sticker Sheet | Layout 1 | L

I don't know about you but I get overwhelmed when ALL of the new collections come out at once.  It's especially bad after Creativation when American Crafts releases what feels like 100 collections at once.  There also seems to be a supply thing and if you don't buy straight away you miss out foreverI wonder cynically if that is all part of the plan.  Then there is Cocoa Vanilla and Pink Fresh too... mustn't miss out on them either.  This time I decided I would place one order for all things under the AC umbrella.  Lottie Loves Paper is my shop of choice and I had a good browse and made a list.  Then I crossed off most of the things on the list when I realised how many sheets of paper that would be!  I settled on 5th & Monaco (paper pad, ephemera and stickers), Paige Evans (one sheet of the pastel diamonds) and Maggie Holmes (four sheets of paper and the sticker sheet).  I was so excited by 5th & Monaco and yet it has sat there untouched so far.  When I got the papers 'in the flesh' as it were I loved the Maggie Holmes ones the most.  The colour palette is different from the same old with a rich yet dusky purple.  This is the start of a mini series of creations made with those 4 Patterned Papers & 1 Sticker Sheet.

I've used some watercolour paper and my Daniel Smith watercolours to paint a splodgy background to layer a couple of cut files on.  The L is left over from this layout and the flowers are a Paige Evans cut file which you can buy as a pre-cut from Pretty My Page.

I've backed the floral cut file with some of the patterned papers.  Before I cut into the first paper I did a little forward planning and looked at what I might want to do with each paper.  I have a rough plan for 5 layouts and put aside chunks of 12" paper for layout two and reserved some green paper for layout five.  I also made sure to cut the border from one of the papers so I could trim down my watercolour paper and have a purple floral border showing.

I added some sewing with my machine and embellished with stickers from the sticker sheet.

To finish off I added a sprinkling of tiny enamel glitter heart stickers.

Here's the process video:
