Let's Celebrate!! With 'B-side' Layouts!!

So it's day 4 of the week long celebration of Webster's Pages new collection called "Let's Celebrate!"   I've got to say I've really had some fun with this collection, but for today's post I was given one of my biggest challenges!  As you all know, Websters Pages paper collections are always a first choice for the gals that love the fussy cutting and the more 'busy' style pages (Ya, that would be me! lol!).  But the really cool thing about them is that there is a more graphic 'B' side to the papers (reverse side) that also cater to the girls who like doing the more simple/clean style pages!  So, I was challenged to do a layout using the B-side of the papers and keep the layout in a cleaner more neg space style (no fussy cutting).  So hang on to your hats, this is different from work you usually see on my blog lol! but I have to admit was a fun challenge!.....
I created this page by first doing a quick little hand doodled sketch on how I wanted the layout to look. (totally different from my usual process where I wing it and just add product and move things around as I go).  I then added the title to the left side of the page and drew out the design with a ruler and pencil and handstitched the frame and floral design.  The rest was done in a matter of minutes, just cut some circle designs from the b-side of the Websters Pages papers and matted with a dove grey cardstock.  Done!  I felt pretty happy with the page in the end......and can you guess which embellishment we are focusing on today?.....Yep, Webster's Blooms!  I chose to use the 'pretty in pink' Princess Petals that coordinate with this collection.....

So, there you go!  Something a little different but a nice and fun change to scrap!  Don't forget to keep playing the "I Spy" game outlined in my previous post, the design team is hunting the blog and Facebook sites for the ladies that are posting the badge/link below.....
Go ahead! Click on the badge above and it will take you to Brandin's surprise site, you can get in on the fun too!!   And if this is your first day checking out this fun week long promotion, you can find out how it all works ~~~> HERE

I just want to say thank-you to all the sweet ladies that commented on my last layout on Tuesday, I read all the comments at the Webster's site and here at my blog!  Your kind words and feedback mean so much to me, Thank-you!! xx

Tomorrow I have another layout to share with you all (I think this one is my fav of the lot).....I'll give you a little hint on the featured product.....it's new, it's glittery, and I just LOVE it! :)

Hi Gabi: You will remember my layout using webster papers on page 2 of my blog.

I was really happy with that layout. Yes, this LO of yours is very different from your usual, although very noticeably unique. Brave girl hand stitching the whole floral design.
