One of my favorite go-to places for design is Pinterest. I found these two images recently & loved the idea of incorporating this diamond pattern into a layout.
Using my Wishing Well kit, I got to work cutting various pattern papers to create my diamond pattern. I cut my photo in a diamond shape as well. To make it easier, I created a 3.5" x 3.5" diamond shape in my Cameo. Then I just cut a variety of patterned papers. I knew I wanted my photo and title block to be a full diamond, so I drew a vertical line where these would be. I adhered them down & simply adding in diamonds around them until I liked the design I created. Then I used my cutter to trim off any overhang of diamonds at the edges.
In my title block I used some of those gorgeous Maggie Holmes rub-ons from the kit, as well as those fun, glittery Thickers!! Here you can see a close-up of my stitching. I stitched diagonally through the edges of each block.
I kept my journaling simple. A simple layering of some fun tags, a sticker, and a brad from the kit made the perfect spot for these few words.
Have you ever tried the diamond pattern on your pages? We'd love to see what you come up with!! Feel free to share your own designs in our Facebook group :)
