6 x 6 Paper Play

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I am sharing how I created layout using two pieces of pattern papers from the 6x6 paper pad. I wanted to create a green & yellow layout for this photo of me and my dad.


The page does look a little summery with the bright yellow and green although I dedicate this layout for Father's Day.


First, start cutting the two pieces of papers into strips. I hand cut them randomly, or you could use a paper trimmer too.


Then arrange them on the white cardstcok (base) and add some machine stitching. Fold the edges of the strips up a little to add a little of dimension.


Once I have stuck down the photo, I pulled out all the green & yellow embellishment from the kits and started arranging them on the page. Some close-up of my layout:


Note: The green butterfly and 'happiness captured' fabric tabs are from my own stash ;)


I hope this week post on how to use your 6x6 paper pad does inspire to create a layout. Thanks for looking and have a great day ahead!


  1. I love this page! Love the strips lifting up a bit and the wonderful photo too! :)

  2. Love this layout too! I keep the design in my mind! Thanks!
