Beyond the Collection

I have met my goal of three pages with this paper pack!  Y'all, this is big for me.  I usually do a page or two with a paper pack and then I move on.  I may eventually get back to it, or it may get lost in my stash or the donation pile.  I'm really trying to get better about using my things while I still like them.  I will say that I have used my favorites in this collection.  I'm not sure how many more layouts I will squeeze out, but I made myself commit to one more, minimum.  

I decided to make a companion page for the layout last week, except I wanted to go in a completely different direction.  I wanted this page to be a bit more reflective of my current style.  While I love last week's page for what it represented, it is not my favorite and that is totally okay.

I love the end result of this page.  I used most of the same papers and the flowers that I used on last week's page. I also pulled in some Maggie Holmes die cuts that were perfect additions for this page.The title is a mixture of a couple of my favorite alphas at the moment.  I just love the way that it turned out.

I added sequins and used the same word stickers which added the final touches of elegance that I was looking for in this layout.  

I want more of the Maggie Holmes flowers.  I still have plenty from the first collection pack, but these are some of my favorite and I can see myself using these time and time again.  

I have a process video if you are interested in taking a closer look.
