This morning I learned that one of my layouts is the "Layout of the Day" at My Scraps and More. I did this soccer layout for the Back to School crop last weekend. It also falls within my "keeping it simple" philosophy I talked about yesterday.
The design is simple - I cut three different patterned papers (from three different manufacturers) into large vertical panels and layered them at an angle. There is a piece from Everyday Eclectic, a piece from Pink Paislee (I think), and a piece from a Creative Memories Fourth of July Addition (They shouldn't go together, but worked perfectly here.). A used a strip of green striped washi across the bottom to tie them together. Most of the embellishments are from a Pebbles package that had been in my stash forever.
I think the banner is what makes the layout. It was from a package of LYB canvas borders. But it included blue pennants that just didn't work with my papers. So I cut the banner into individual pennants and put it back together with the curve and without the blue pennants. (The blue pennants are safely stored so I can use them another time.) I used the Everyday Eclectic letter stickers to finish the banner.
Keep it simple and have a great Sunday!
