Scrapbook Layout - Be Happy For Today -
|a close up to the layout|
I have been hard at work -late at night, mostly- on a few projects, in hopes to put a dent on my paper stash. This time, I am working with Amy Tangerine's Better Together collection to document a picture of my 3 kids early one morning (they had just woken up, and are wearing pjs on the photo).
I started by using the yellow card-stock from the digital collection, Sunny Side Up, from the Cut Shoppe. Since it was printed to fit a 11x17 in paper, I trimmed it to fit into a 11x11 in. To complete the 12x12 in page protector of the album, I used the sewing machine to add a large border to the entire page. I used the different papers in the collection to create this triangle shapes (graduated triangles), and stitched them to the layout.
|Th Acrylic piece of ephemera worked perfectly to form the title of this project.|
I made sure the triangle shapes were stitched offset of each other, so that they pointed to both horizontal edges of the picture. I chose to create a large cluster with stickers and ephemera pieces from the same paper collection.
|the final layout.|
To finish this project, i added a few rub-on stickers and stitched the printed lines of journal to the page.
This layout reminds me of the layouts i created when i first was introduced to scrapbooks, and I love it!!
As always, let me know if you have any questions about how this page came together.
See you all very soon!
