A “Happy Accident” Layout with Maggie Massey

It’s often been said that there are no “accidents” in crafting, only opportunities, and today Maggie Massey is here to share a layout that completely backs up that statement, using our May 2017 Kit and add-ons. We know you will love her clean, yet colorful design. Let’s take a look at what she created.

Hello, hello everyone! Maggie here with a look at a layout I created with the May 2017 Kit & extras!

A few days ago, I was sitting down with the May 2017 Kit, waiting for inspiration to hit. I had already picked the photo I wanted to use, and I had been going through some of the tags, looking at them, and then just sort of tossing the tags I thought might look good off to the side.

I’d gotten through the kit and I turned to grab the tags I’d chosen when I noticed that they had fallen into a kind of pattern—a little stack of tags, with some of the designs showing slightly off balance, but also sorta cool. And right then I knew how I’d design my page.


 
I picked up the stack of tags, exactly how they lay, moved them around just a bit, and added my photo on top.

I loved the way it looked! Slightly messy and a little off-kilter, disheveled… and perfect.

I added this stack to a white cardstock background, backed with a few strips of patterned paper from the Live Laugh Love Collection 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, and then just popped on a splash of ink and few embellishments.


 
The Dated Stamp, my very favorite, and a small little piece of typed journaling rounded out the page.

This may just be my new favorite page, and to think, it happened all by “accident!” Thank you so much for taking a look! I hope I’ve inspired you to take a look at the messy little stacks on your desk. Maybe that’s where your next design inspiration will lie!
