"Love These Memories": PaperHaus Tutorial

Hello everyone! 

I'm back again today with a layout created for the PaperHaus Magazine blog, and I have yet another tutorial for you, this time focusing on how to use die cuts/hand cut elements to create a collage-style background. Many paper collections come with those sheets that are just full of fun little things to cut out, just like the amazing "Lifetime" & "Engraver" collections from Prima. If you can't choose just one or two images (or die cuts) to use- why not choose them all?! Collage work is fun and there's really not a wrong way of doing it.

"Love These Memories"
 This is a photo of my niece Lilah and myself when my sister Kelly and her girls came to visit me at my new house for the first time last month. She helped me fill my bird feeders and I just loved having such a sweet little helper!

Let's get started on the tutorial, shall we?






Products Used:

Patterned Papers: Prima Marketing & Pink Paislee
Flowers: Prima Marketing
Embellishments: Prima Marketing
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Masks: Prima Marketing & The Crafter's Workshop
Stamps: Webster's Pages
Mists: Tattered Angels
Medium: Golden Modeling Paste
Other: seam binding, masking tape

I hope you were able to pick up a tip or two! Why not go and try your own hand at some collage work~ you just might love it :)

Thanks for stopping in!

Hi Erin, I'm going to give this a try, it looks like such fun and a little different. TFS and your layout with Lilah is gorgeous, I always wished for a sister when I was younger and then again when I had children, you and Kelly are so lucky to have each other.
