Today's project is one of my scrapbook pages. Scrapbooking is not my usual or strongest category. I don't know why, but I have not been able to get in the swing of things. Having to do these pages though, really helped me realize that I can do them, it's not so hard!
This is my 8x8 page, and is a traditional page, all hand cut and stamped (except the journaling). I love the sunburst pattern and I thought that the Patio Party DSP would fit the pattern nicely. I printed off a pattern and sized it to my needs, and cut each piece out, just like a puzzle.
I wanted to stitch each piece on to the baja breeze layer to add dimension. You can see the zig zag stitch here, it was relatively easy, just put a bit of snail on the center of what you want to sew to hold it in place, and sew around the edges.
When I made this page, the Patio Party DSP, Apothecary Accents framelits, and Layered Labels stamp set was a preorder for SU demos before the catalog came out, so just playing with these items was unfamiliar. Notice the journaling? I later did a Framelits 101 tutorial on how to achieve this layered look. A bit of MDS fit the bill here. Some pearls, ribbon and tags helped me out greatly!
A simple scallop square helps to mat my picture of Mackie and her friends. I loved how this page turned out and it gave me the confidence to keep trying scrap book pages, so look for more in the future.
