Tips and Techniques with Dana!

Hi Quick Quotes fans!

Dana here today sharing a layout that I created with the Beautiful Life collection. I love the yellow and gray color palette and elegant patterned papers of this line and I find myself reaching for this collection for project after project.


Designer Tip:
Create a visual triangle with embellishments like I did here with the button, bow and flower. By placing items on our scrapbook pages in a triangle, it allows the eye to see the page as a whole rather than being distracted by one or two pieces on the page.


I included both circles and stripes in my design. I added a fun dot border to my cardstock with a white marker to play up the circular elements on my page.


I cut several circles from the Beautiful Life 100 patterned paper to created a border. I accented that border with a piece of pearl adorned lace.


I found the perfect title for my layout in the Sentiments Quote Bundle.

Designer Tip:
When using several different sheets of patterned paper, ink the edges of the papers and mat with a solid cardstock to help define the designs.
