Look, it’s back! It’s Scrapbooking Sunday!
I love, love, love making cards. But boy did I miss making scrapbook pages. I have photos piled up in my craft room and that is only the ones I’ve printed in the last year thinking I was going to be getting way more scrapbooking done than I did! So, I decided to play along with a sketch challenge at ScrapbookSteals and um… I think I jumped back in at a challenging time.
We had to make a sunburst on our scrapbook page! I had never done that before and it was a challenge for me. But I just LOVE how it turned out!
I used the Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper because I liked the bright and cheery colors and how they matched so well with the summery colors and feel of the photo (that is my daughter Caitlin last summer in our new inflatable swimming pool. Also one of my favorite pictures of her!)
The sketch called for buttons in your sun rays but as I was playing with my buttons I realized that my “x” buttons from the Bitty Buttons set looked kind of like stitches and I was sold.
And as I tried to figure out what I would use for a title for this page, I remembered the Vintage Verses stamp set (on of the Free exclusive sets from Sale-a-Bration) and thought the “There’s Only One You” was a perfect fit. Combine that with the cool background shape from Everything Eleanor, and BAM! Title done!
You can also see in that picture the Melon Mambo striped organdy ribbon (which I’m way more in love with than I thought because it is so soft and vibrant!) and the Delicate Details lace tape which I thought would be a great subtle accent for the page.
Finally, I have to show you the last touch that I’m kind of proud of… the Baker’s Twine flower! I made it myself!
I started with a glue dot on the page and a piece of Island Indigo Baker’s Twine. Then I formed loops and with each loop, I ran the twine back over the glue dot in the center (I had to add a second glue dot over the first to help hold it all down but it all worked out). Then to finish off the center I had a Wisteria Wonder printed brad that I covered in Crystal Effects and dipped in Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Let it dry and then set in the middle of my flower for a cute finishing touch!
I love how this page turned out and hopefully you got some fun ideas for incorporating into your own scrapbook pages.
