Teresa Collins Papers


I am in awe of those crafters who are able to put patterned papers together with such ease because it's always a struggle for me even when using coordinating sets.  I recently won two new Teresa Collins collections though and I didn't want to condemn them to the dusty  shelf where my patterned papers go to die!  I figured this sketch from The Paper Players was a good place to start trying to use them.  It has a pretty straightforward layout and I managed to use 3 different PPs, a flower die cut and a brad!  Whoop whoop!  It also has about 5 layers so I'm also going to enter it at the Young Crafters Unite challenge to use many layers.  


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up

Patterned Papers:  (Fabrications: Canvas collection)  Teresa Collins
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Simple Salutation) Market Street Stamps
Ink: (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Diecut & Brad:  
(Fabrications: Canvas collection)  Teresa Collins

Nicely done! I don't combine patterns very often either, but this looks terrific!

awesome effort on the patterned paper front ... still love that there's a bit of white in there though :)

I know you say that you struggle with them, but whenever you use pp you rock it, girlie :) I guess the trick is all in the subtlety of the pattern? Love that fun brad in the centre of the flower. I hope all your Y chromosomes are healing up as they should be?
