Your Smile Makes the World BrighterA basic grid design is always a versatile starting point for projects – scrapbook layouts and cards alike! For this layout, each space was viewed as a tiny opportunity to play with pattern and texture. The common theme that pulls the collection of mini canvases together is the colors scheme and the world and smile themes that were generated by the stamped sentiment. The photo, slightly larger and tilted a bit, takes center stage. The stamped and textured panels were offset to balance the completed page.
In the upper left corner, the Horizontal Stitched Strips were cut and woven together. The main component from the Smile stamp set was stamped repeatedly and punctuated by the Ampersand die cuts attached with dimensional foam.
In the lower right corner, the panel was first stamped with the Wood Plank Background. Partial die cutting was done with the High-Rise Alphabet letters to create the title. Finally, a collection of die-cut stars and the peek-a-boo border from Blueprints 18 were added.
