January's Product Showcase

hHi all. As most of you know by now, we are changing things up a bit here at the Daisy Diaries blog for the year 2011. The fourth Monday post will be allotted for technique or product showcase.

I'm very honored to be the first one in this year to share my showcase and I chose product.

Over the last two CHA's, Upsy Daisy Designs have features specific papers in their new lines with journaling blocks and quote strips. This is one of my favorites in each line and I decided to share with you what I did with the Avalanche's Summit paper.

There is only one you

In my page, I decided to put my focus on one photo. I think the picture of my dad and daughter is so precious that it deserved a full page just for it. Anyways, I used the wipeout paper as my background because I love the neutral color but the distressed design gave it some pop.
I then layered some of my favorite strips from the line. I loved the "there is only one you" quote that I decided to make that my title.

with the smaller blocks like this clock above, I added it as an embellishment, filling the middle with a flower and a UDD brad.

I used my daughter's shirt color as a visual triangle element and matched it with my two flowers on the page. I added another UDD brad in my layered flower above.

As you can see, there are so many possibilities with the Summit paper. You can use most of it in one page, like what I did here or just spread them around to a few pages or even a mini. For an example of this, check my blog. I posted a mini using the same paper lines.

Thanks for stopping by.

Till next time,

I love how you used the blocks and quotes. It makes scrapping so much easier and quicker when you have the perfect quote at hand, right?

Gorgeous layout!
