I had a layout up on the American Crafts blog yesterday!
Journaling says: On a warm and sunny day in January, I took Fox and Jane outside to our "patch of grass," set them down together, and snapped away. I love watching them watch each other and interact together. Love them!
How to: Trim patterned papers, photos, and a transparency sheet into hexagons. Figure out the placement and loosely adhere the hexagons in place. Punch confetti and borders from patterned paper, patterned vellum, corrugated cardstock, and glitter paper. Trim the border pieces into individual shapes. Sew the transparency hexagons onto the layout, leaving a hole for pouring in the confetti (add small wooden veneer shapes to the mix), then finish sewing them down. Embellish the hexagons with stickers, sequins, and other embellishments. Add a wooden veneer word for a title and stamp the date below. Write journaling on an empty hexagon.
Supplies: Cardstock, corrugated cardstock, patterned paper, patterned vellum, glitter paper, mini album page, stickers (ampersand, cameras, hearts, label, number, sentiments, words), star paper clip), date stamp, ink, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Transparency: Office supply; Sequins: Craft supply; Wooden veneer: American Crafts (word), Studio Calico (airplane, birds, boat, car, stars); Punches: EK Success (confetti), Martha Stewart Crafts (butterfly confetti, butterfly border, heart confetti, star confetti, train border); Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark
I loving the confetti trend! I hope it sticks around for awhile!
