Jump for Joy!

Here's a layout in a style that's slightly different from my usual. I played with October Afternoon's Fly A Kit collection from My Scrapbook Nook's May kit. What a fun cheery kit this is, lots of bright colours and cute elements.

I love layouts with lots of dimension and I use foam dots in a lot of my layouts. But this time I wanted to see if I could create a flattish layout, no foam dots and minimal 3D elements. The October Afternoon stickers were great to play with. I could layer them to create interest without the bulk.

Border punches and trimming the edges of patterned paper are a great way to create dimension without too much bulk. Here I layered the border-punched edges one on top of the other for a fun lacey effect. The punched out butterflies add just that touch of dimension as well.

So there's my non-3D layout but one that still has some dimension. And one that I can slip easily into my album, unlike some of my bulkier ones. :)
