To me, paper layering means using a variety of products, from various collections, that all complement each other and use them on a single paper crafting project. This is my FAVORITE way to create.  I enjoy being able to just grab from my stash when construct a layout, like this Snow Cute page.MissCarriesCreations-SnowCuteLayoutSM.jpg

To often, we grab a background paper, like the one from Holly Jolly here, and think that we need to only using Holly Jolly products, without noticing that the Mix-Ins and Cedar & Pine have embellishments that match perfectly. When I am designing my layouts, I don’t even pay attention to the product line, I simply snag & grab everything that coordinates  with my photo and create.

If you look at the title of my layout, you will see that I used a combination of Complete Creativity Cricut™ cuts  and stickers from the Cedar & Pine Collection, yet the paper is from the Holly Jolly collection. These both match my photos and coordinate with each other.  

If you take a hard look at the other side of the layout, you will notice Cricut™ cuts from Flower Market, Your Are Here, & Complete Creativity along with stickers from the Holly Jolly collection.  Every piece I chose for this layout complements each other and the photos I am trying to highlight.  If you like, you can watch this short process video, and watch how I put together this Snow Cute page.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Darlys Recker’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas.  I hope today’s post has encouraged you to start looking at your products in a whole new way.

I can’t wait to see what you create!

  1. Carrie, You are truly an ‘artist’ …one that can take bits and pieces of different paper crafting materials and tools and put together an eye-pleasing and very interesting piece to showcase your photos. Great LO!
