American Crafts: Clips and Clusters

Today I’m up on the American Crafts blog with a really fun and colorful page using the BRAND NEW Box of Crayons collection by Shimelle.

I was immediately drawn to the Outpouring Paper with the large heart design. I love papers like this because they are such a fun way to start a page design!

I was inspired by the horizontal strips of pattern going across the heart and decided right away that I wanted to use a craft knife to make small slits along the top of the “strips” and then attach the Glitter Icon Paper Clips to look as though they were clipped onto the horizontal patterned strips. Next, I would build clusters around the clips in several places around the page.

In each cluster, I used one or two of the glitter clips to attach word strips and images cut from the All the Things paper, Make Something Paper, and In the Frame Paper. I also added in several of the Puffy Stickers for additional texture.

Here you can see a closer view of the photo corners from this collection (I love how they shimmer and shine with foil accents), along with the adorable toucan Glitter Shaker Sticker!

I anchored the title for this page with several paper strips and the added a few camera accents (cut from the Snapshot Paper) and a sprinkle of colorful puffy hearts.
