GIRL POWER - Scrapbook Nerd

Hi there!

I am back today with a new project for Scrapbook Nerd.  This time, I used the soft and super pretty Joyful Day collection from Pinkfresh Studio to create a new project all (available at the store right now) about my babies,  our Goddaughters.

It all started with a cut file from Handipaper, as soon as i saw it all i can think of was this picture and the collection.  I used my Silhouette software to create an offside of the title and handstitched it.   Once it was all done, i used some Vicki Boutin Watercolor markers to add the vivid color in the letters. 

I wanted something really soft for this page's background, so i chose a soft pink cardstock from my stash.  First glued the cut file straight to the page, and nestle the picture under it (I backed the picture with a paper from the Joyful Day collection).  Next, I chose to cut a slit at the top and bottom corner of the page and fold the papers so that they create a small gap.

I backed the space with a paper from the collection in the 6x6   and 12x12 form, and then used a few stitches to hold the folds together.  Next i added clusters of ephemera and stickers from the Joyful Day collection at the folds and picture.  To finish the page, i used some foam adhesive to add a few butterflies around the page (the cut file is also from Handipaper), followed by a few drops of white and gold ink.

This page is so perfect to describe my little girls, and i love the contrast of the colors and textures in the page.   Stop by Scrapbook Nerd to check all the materials used in this page, they have a new site and all the new collections have arrived or are arriving at the moment.  If you have questions  on how this came together, do not hesitate to contact me!
