We are so excited to share the work of Heather Leopard, our guest designer for October! Heather’s eclectic, chic style is a great compliment to the Aurora collection she used for these beautiful projects!
Lovely Smile Layout:
I love mixing and matching different patterns. For this page, I enjoyed creating little clusters of embellishments to draw the eye around the page.
Round & Round Layout:
I had these photos of my daughter twirling in excitement so I thought it was only fitting to create a page that captured the motion. I cut 3 circles and stitched them over each other, adding the long title in the inner circle. I sprinkled a few embellishments around the page to complete the layout.
You Are My Universe Card:
I chose to create star garland to help accent the sentiment for this card. The triangle bits were an obvious choice to anchor the card at the bottom and then I simply cut the paper strip from a 12×12 sheet of pattern paper to use as an accent at the top, adding a little sneak of a starry sky just above.
I love geometric patterns so when I saw these, I just knew I had to use them for this card. I love that this card is clean and simple yet, bold and grabs your attention.
