Love that Smile Layout

I had a great time designing this page using our newest products. I set myself a challenge to use the rubons and then it grew from there! I haven't done another page, but easily could as have the other half of the rubons left. So, this is quite a simple design using blocks of paper. Some of the paper is edged in dark brown chalk ink. The little green rectangle bazzill piece has been stamped all over using the small owl in the stamp set listed. I then punched out 4 holes and thread ribbon in a criss cross fashion and tied the centre together in a bow. The tree is stamped then cut out. Once stuck down , punch out a number of small circles to use as "leaves" and then add a small flower or two. I felt I needed to bring in the orange but didn't want it overpowering. I did stitch lines all around the rectangles and the base page to bring it together.
I hope this inspires you to create this week! Pick one product and see if you can create around that.
Take care
