Here's a simple way to make some pattern paper for your layout or card. All you need are some pattern papers and stamps from My Little Shoebox and you are all set.
You will need to pick a lightly patterned paper and the B-sides of the MLS papers are perfect for this purpose. Next pick the stamp image that best suits your requirements.
Stamp randomly all over the paper with your preferred ink. If you like your images a little glittery, sprinkle your stamped images with some glitter embossing powder and set the images with a heat gun. Once your images are dry, you can cut your new pattern paper and start creating.
Here is another pattern that I did with some green pattern paper, green ink pad and the cute trees from the Simple Life stamp set.
Finish off with some MLS die cuts and stickers and you have a cute card for a loved one in no time.
Here's another card I did with the heart stamps that goes perfectly with the die cuts from Cute as a Button line.
Thanks for stopping by for my Tuesday Tutorial. I hope you will have a go at creating some of your own personal patterned paper with all the MLS goodies you have on hand.

Hello! We hope you enjoyed this week's Tutorial Tuesday! We're following up today with even more tag inspiration from our design team. Let's take a look at how some of our team uses our journaling diecuts to create with.
Here's a fun TO DO board project created by Kathleen
Kathleen used transparency sheets and cut the centers out of the die cuts from our Green collection to create the lists for each day of the week
Aphra used Cute as a Button diecuts to accent her title and sub title in this layout she created.
Love all those layered circle scallops. That's a lot of work for beautiful dimension!
Taj used journaling die cuts to create two adorable bookmarks with a mash of our Green and Cute as a Button collections.
And finally Kathie layered her journaling die cuts into her layout design using our Green collection
We hope you're inspired to get out those diecuts and create! We love seeing all the My Little Shoebox creations posted to our Facebook fan page. Click here to post your work for us to see!
Bio: I'm a stay at home mama to my four littles (5 years and younger!!!),
and happy wife to
Shaun for one whole decade. With such a crazy, fun life, I absolutely
need time every evening
to kind of "re-center" myself. Scrapbooking is that tool. It helps me
to remember all the beauty in our day-to-day lives, and create a little
beauty to go along with it.
I have been scrapbooking for a
little over 10 years, and designing for almost 5 years. I'm currently
designing for Noel Mignon Kits, Lily Bee Designs, and Girls' Paperie.
You can keep up with my creative endeavors, my kids' silly antics,
and my random musings on my blog, blackflipflops.blogspot.com
Here are some sneaks of what to expect from Virginia...
