100% Un-Original (and loving it!)

Hey hey everyone, it's Cat here again!  I'm back with another layout for Paper Issues, and this month I'm thinking, lets not be original.  Yep, that's right, you heard me, or read me.  Lets not be original!  So many times in scrapbooking we are trying to come up with a unique design, or idea, or technique, because we're worried about copying someone else or doing the same old thing that everyone has seen before.  Well I'm calling bull-plop on that thought, and today I'm sharing a 100% UN-original layout.  A few years ago I was watching process videos and I came across one from Paige Taylor Evans where she used strips of paper to create a weave pattern.  She mostly used branding strips that were left over.  Well wouldn't you know it I had a ton of these laying around, so I thought to myself, "self, why don't you do a weave layout."  So I did just that!  Now I went into my papers and found a few more branding strips that I wanted to use.  Almost all of my strips are from lines that came out between 2016-2017, and I combined Shimelle, Paige Evans, Dear Lizzy, and Amy Tangerine papers for this one!  I also combined newer products with older ones for all of the embellishments, which I did keep to a minimum since there is already so much going on!
