The One with Scrap Your Stash #4

Thursday, April 18, 2013

My fourth Scrap Your Stash layout and accompanying video is up at today!

Description: Backing die cut shapes with patterned paper is such a hot trend right now - I thought it'd be fun to change things up and back my title with ribbon! Goodness knows I have enough ribbon in my stash to last a lifetime - time to scrap my ribbon stash! With a black and white photo and a rainbow of ribbon scraps as well as spray mist in hand, I created this layout with a title from a quote by Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. I find it very romantic and thought it'd be appropriate to use with a layout of me and my husband. Clusters of different borders punched from a rainbow of patterned papers ties in all the colors. With the help of some embellishments like brads, buttons, and acrylic shapes, some dimension is created and helps keep things interesting and dynamic!

Journaling says: We sat on the Friends couch. 'Nuf said.

How to: The video shows how to create the layout from start to finish. Here it is written: Die cut a title from white cardstock with a gap between the last lines for a photo. Back the letters with a rainbow of colors of ribbon in different styles and textures. Drop a rainbow of spray mist over the title and let it dry. Add embellishments in the large "open" letters (like "O" and "D"). Punch borders from patterned papers and adhere them next to the photo. Add die cut feathers, flowers, a sentiment, and label over the punched borders. Stamp the date and write journaling on the label. Add colored photo corner die cuts to the photo and tuck a journaling spot cut in half under the photo edges.

Supplies: Cardstock, buttons, brads, date stamp, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; Patterned paper, die cuts (feathers, flowers, journaling spot, label, photo corners, sentiment), spray mist: Studio Calico; Ink: StazOn; Border punches: American Crafts, Fiskars; Die cut machine: Silhouette Cameo
