Hello there SC&T fans! Nancy here to celebrate the best crafty day of the year. Creating texture on a page and doing that unexpected thing are my aim when creating a layout. I love playing with design and color. In this layout I wanted to use these wood veneer hoops by Crate Paper to highlight pattern and create a base for a favorite photo. 


I filled the hoops with patterned papers in shades of pink, aqua and a pop of bold black and white writing. Clustering them in the center of the page creates a perfect landing spot for the 4×4 photo.

For the something different with a touch of texture, I wrapped one of the frames with string. It’s a quick and simple way to dress it up. Now it stands out from the other hoops but still belongs with the group. 


The veneer flower was painted white so that it would stand out from the background. A die cut sentiment and flair badge in the center complete the page. 


This is a simple, clean design with a bit of punch. This page took just under an hour to create – keeping the techniques simple and creating layers of texture is the key! 

Happy {inter} National Scrapbook Day!
