I love how paper collections come with so many journaling cards, stickers and die-cuts with words. Those elements typically get the creative thoughts moving, and inspire me to go in a specific direction with a page.
Take this page! I wanted the neutral base to pop off the woodgrain paper. But then I needed other color. I was drawn to so many of the typography elements so I decided to just use them all!
I layered the majority of my stickers and die-cuts from the Family Traditions collection by Adrienne Looman and Webster's Pages at the top of my page. It balances out the woodgrain and compliments the white space on the bottom.
Not sure how to edit down? Just use it all in smaller pieces, layered! It will give you a good result!
