JoAnn's Guest Designer | Park Lane Sunshine & Rain...

Hello Friends! I am excited to share a little cross promotional guest designer role with you here today. I was generously sponsored by JoAnn' s recently to create some projects using the gorgeous Park Lane Paperie 12x12 paper stacks!

These paper stacks really do have something for everyone! It is chock full of beautiful patterned papers (front and back) as well as, glitter, linen glitzy and textured cardstock!

 What more could you ask for!!

For my first project, I started playing with the Sunshine & Rain paper stack. You can get your own from JoAnn's here.

To bring this layout together, I carefully selected a photo to match the colour tones in the paper stack. I have been wanting to document this photo of my daughter for a while now and because of the glittery nature of her shirt, it was the perfect reason to use the glitter cardstock as a feature on my page.

The banner across the top of my page is a combination of textured white cardstock, vellum and glitter cardstock, layered together.

Using a border punch, I've added a small strip of decorative patterned paper to the top of the glitter banner. The rest I have just layered with images fussy cut from the patterned paper in the stack.

Journaling was typed directly onto the back ground patterned paper after I had a good idea of where my photo placement would be.

For the title I grabbed the glitter cardstock once more and using a Heidi Swapp "document" die, I ran it through my bigshot.

To complete my layout, I have added fussy cut flowers, some mounted onto foam dots, in a cascade across the photo. This placement is to mimic the way her hair falls over her shoulder.

I hope I have shown a fun way to use glitter cardstock in a simplified manner. Please be sure to stay tuned for more projects to come over the next week.
