One Patterned Paper... Three Projects

So I wanted to see how far I could stretch just one piece of patterned paper.  I chose this piece from Pink Paislee:
From Flamingo Scraps:  pink paislee 365 degrees collection - daydream patterned paper

First, I used it to make this two-page layout:

Other supplies:  Cosmo Cricket the Boyfriend collection, Scenic Route graph and notebook paper, American Crafts black thickers in Prancer, star punches, black sharpie pen

This one-page layout about a recent birthday celebration we attended:

From Flamingo Scraps:  Webster's Life's Portrait patterned paper (black & white polka dot); Prima Innoscense flowers, white e-line flowers, white e-line pearls and black e-line bling; pink paislee bayberry cottage die cut
Other supplies:  fiskars threading water punch, orange fine tip sharpie pen, American Crafts black thickers in prancer, Making Memories tiny alphas (date), gray cardstock, black cardstock and white Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock
Color photo edited in Adobe Photoshop with Coffeeshop blog's Honey Retro action.

That journaling block is actually the remainder of the pattern from one of the pink paislee bayberry cottage die cuts.  I cut it out carefully, glued it to some white paper and cut it out leaving a small border of white paper.
Finally, I made this card, which I shared with you last Friday:

From Flamingo Scraps:  pink paislee 365 degrees collection die cuts
Other supplies:  white mini ric rac

Not too shabby for one piece of paper!  And it caused me to use up lots of fun stuff from my stash.  I love mixing different lines of patterned paper on my layouts and the Pink Paislee 365 collection works well for that purpose!  Have you ever tried to see how you could stretch out one piece of paper for several projects?
