A few weeks ago my daughter raided my scrapbook supplies for her project. She needed 15 8×8 pages. This left me with 15 12x8s and 15 4×8 pieces of patterned paper. We all know that this hobby can be quite costly so I try to use every piece of scrap I have until it is reduced to a minuscule piece. It is scrapbooking after all, ha!
So what does one do with all these uniformly cut pieces of paper? Make a layout of course!
I was lucky enough that she used coordinating pattern papers that piecing them to make a 12×12 page was easy.
Here’s a closer look:
The fonts were cut using my slice die cutter. Luv that small gadget. Quite handy. I used two cardstocks on each letter to mimic chipboard and covered the top with glitter glue. Even the butterflies were stamped and embossed on scrap patterned paper and embellished with bling to give it some interest. Didn’t I mention I also try to be frugal … very frugal?
Here are a couple more close-up look:
I typed my journaling on the computer and printed it on patterned paper. For added interest, fonts and ink colors are mixed and matched.
The background were pieced together and doodlebug and K & Company borders were added too.
