Growing In Unity: Day 2 ~ Fun with Patterned Papers

Hi all and welcome to Day 2 of my week as the Growing in Unity Girl!  Each day this week I am featuring a new project using stamps from the fabulous Unity Stamp Co.!  And at the end of the week I will draw TWO WINNERS from all of the comments left on the blog posts all week and those lucky folks will get 25 random stamps from Unity all for their very own!  Woo hoo!!  In case you missed it, don't forget to check out Day 1 and leave a comment so you get all the entries you can!


For today's post I am using the adorable You Bing Me Joy stamp set. I just love these cherries!  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to bust out my Dear Lizzy Happy Place paper pad (I'm on a personal mission to use every sheet in this pad because it is just that cute!) and select some fab patterns to accompany this sweet image.  I knew there was a cherry patterned paper in there just calling my name!  


When I use multiple patterns on one layout I usually stick to one paper pad since they have already done the hard part and coordinated everything for me.  I have to admit, this type of design is not my strong suit so I love that these paper pads take the guess work out of it for me!  I usually pick one busier paper and then some more solid patterns that coordinate.  Sometimes, just for kicks, I'll see if I can incorporate another busy pattern in a small way - like the fun skinny banner with all the different fruit on it!


I hope you enjoyed today's project!  Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered to be one of TWO WINNERS!!  Check back in tomorrow for  a blog post and video!  Thanks so much guys!  Bye!
