Scrapbook Layout Idea | Diamond Background

I think it's no secret around here that I love working with 6x6" paper pads! I just love the compact size and the smaller patterns. It works so well with the designs I enjoy creating most - backgrounds made up of smaller pieces.


This layout was from a class I taught a We Create a few years ago.


Supplies used - Cardstock: American Crafts; Patterned paper: Pink & Main; Alphabet stickers: Elle's Studios; Embroidery floss: DMC; Computer font: Century Gothic


This design has a lot of detail, but it's incredibly easy to create!



All you need are several different patterned paper squares and a square cardstock base to build the design on.



Anytime I create a pattern like this I always start in the very middle of the base. For this layout you can use a ruler to make a cross in the very center of that base piece and then adhere that first diamond/tilted square so that each point lines up with the cross piece in the center.



Then from there all you have to do is build out from that center piece. This ensures that the pattern is centered on the base. Sometimes it can be distracting if the pattern isn't centered and you end up with bigger pieces on one edge and smaller pieces on the other. It's just more visually appealing to have it centered. Or at least it is to me because I'm a crazy perfectionist!!



To finish the design I added some stitched lines and some fussy cut hearts and adhered the to the center of some diamonds with foam adhesive.


We've still got a few kits available from this class!




This kit includes:

• The materials to create the layout.
