There are so many great patterns to mix & match in here! They were perfect for this simple sketch from one of the Sketches for Scrapbooking books from Scrapbook Generations, and the colors were super easy to coordinate with cardstock and markers from Close To My Heart.
I cut stars from an additional pattern as well as Sunset cardstock using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from CTMH, and combined them with several star stickers from the collection for a fun embellishment group. I also added some faux stitching to my pattern squares using my CTMH ruler and piercing tool, plus some markers in Sunset and Outdoor Denim, and a white Uniball Signo gel pen.
And I layered the cardstock and pattern paper using the same cuts for a couple of the stars. Popping some up on the 3-D foam adhesive is a great way to add even more dimension. I also distressed the edges of the pattern squares for added dimension and a more boyish look.
I finished it all off with a simple title using the alpha stickers in the collection and some more Sunset cardstock - SO easy!
