The One with a Layout in Signature Series: Elizabeth Kartchner

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I have a layout in the "Elizabeth & Friends" section of the brand new Signature Series: Elizabeth Kartchner book!
In case you don't know who Elizabeth Kartchner is, most definitely check out her amazing, inspiring, colorful blog. I love her style of scrapbooking and her personal clothing style - she's totally gorgeous inside and out. Her Dear Lizzy lines with American Crafts are always amazing and I find myself using her product over and over again! Speaking of which, I used her Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line to make the page which I'm referring to:

Journaling says: I didn't think it was possible to love something so much, but being your mother has taught me more than I can explain. You are my light and my life - I'd do anything for you and I'll always love you no matter what! You are my favorite thing!

How to: Die cut a chevron background from cardstock, set it over a cream patterned paper background, spray over it with mist, then remove the mask. Cut pieces of super strong tape into little bits and set them in three chevrons across the top of the layout. Punch heart and star confetti from patterned paper and sprinkle it onto the tape. Stitch around the layout and between the stripes using gray thread then write journaling on the top line of stitching. Make a title, add photos, and embellish with pearls and a wooden button as shown.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, wooden button, chipboard word, stickers (letters, sentiment), pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Pearls: Mark Richards; Punches (hearts, stars): Martha Stewart Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine (Cameo), chevron background die (Silhouette): QuicKutz
