I thought I would pop in and share a layout I did last week. I did it for a challenge over at Elle's Studio and had a blast with it. :)
(Supplies used: Cardstock - American Crafts; Patterned papers - Studio Calico, My Minds Eye, Sassafras, Echo Park; Index card - Studio Calico; Twine - Lawn Fawn; Washi - Freckled Fawn; Label die cut - Twogirlz; Wooden buttons - American Crafts; Thread - DMC; Banner die cut - My Minds Eye; Letter stickers - Heidi Swapp; Die cut tags (twenty-two, the details, place) - Elle's Studio; Clock sticker - Bazzill; Resist chipboard buttons - Prima; Brads and stick pin - My Minds Eye; Chipboard tab - Jenni Bowlin; Punches - EK Success (swiss cheese for confetti) and Fiskars (triangle); Ink - Jenni Bowlin; "Noted" Stamp - Studio Calico)
I threaded the end of each button and tied a bow with the twine. Nice little addition without threading each button separately.
My own handmade banner! :) I was inspired by the printed one and let that be the centerpiece for the featured banner that stretched across my page and provides cohesiveness. All the triangles were punched with a fabulous Fiskars punch and then inked, placed, and glued down.
I cut the twenty-two off of an Elle's Studio numbered cutouts set and made it into a banner to tie into the main banner featured on the page.
And finally - CONFETTI!! :) I handstitched the border and added the confetti to the top and bottom of the page.
I had a blast with this page. I just had to scrap this adorable picture of Brandt. I couldn't resist. :) And this is where the creative process led me this time.
I hope you enjoy!
Have a wonderful day.
