Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my last post as Guest Designer for Cocoa Vanilla Studio. For today’s layout I decided to showcase lots of the patterned papers from the ‘No Limits’ collection to create a pie chart effect. I love to do this type of design when I want to use lots of different patterns.

When designing a page like this, I like to stick to more of the “B” sides to make sure the patterns aren’t competing with each other and making the page too busy. I added in the Nebula paper to break up the solid papers I have used. This adds a nice contrast. I also added some black stamping to the outer edges of the pie pieces to help them pop off the page. I also added some foam adhesive to some of the pie pieces… I love dimension!

Before gluing my papers down I distressed the edges of the papers and added some distress oxide to the outside of the pie chart in matching colours. This adds some nice pops of colour to my white cardstock.

To embellish the page I think I used a little bit of everything from the ephemera pack, the wood epoxy buttons, the puffy stickers, the accessory stickers and the chipboard. Again, I used the Nebula paper to fussy cut out some stars to add around the page.

Lastly I cut my page down to 11.5″ square and backed it onto the Spark paper…. I think a patterned paper border really finishes off a page made on white cardstock.

That’s it for me creative peeps, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here as guest designer and I hope I have inspired you in some way. I also want to thank Zoe and Sue for having me, I have loved every minute.

Happy Creating!
