Be Happy For Today...

Scrapbook Layout - Be Happy For Today -

a close up to the layout

Hi there!

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!
