Those of you who know me, know that I don't actually scrapbook much. I originally started out by scrapbooking, and I intend to do a lot more scrapping in the future. When I was first brainstorming for the Honest Scrap Award that Lora had given me the other day, I wanted to make a page about these little truths. I thought it'd make a great page, and I normally have trouble scrapping myself! I didn't have a chance to make a page at the time though, so I had gone ahead and posted just the list.
Anyway, I used this week's sketch challenge over at the Memory Makers Magazine forum. The sketch is originally one of Becky Fleck's PageMaps. Here's my layout..
I flipped the sketch sideways to accommodate my picture. I didn't actually do any stamping on this, I'm just realizing. It is, as always though, all SU! stuff! I love how my journaling "page" turned out.. can you guess that I made that? Yes, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock, drew horizontal lines with my Old Olive marker, then drew vertical lines with my Rose Red marker. Perfect coordination! I used the Spiral punch to finish off the edges, and curled up the ends a little with the bone folder. The cute little Old Olive clip just adds so much more to it as well.
Here's a close-up of the journaling (keep in mind I don't normally reveal these things about me!):
These are the same things I listed in my Honest Scrap Award post. Next, I have a view of the right side, to show you the dimension:
I just love that butterfly die! You can give it a really great finished look by tying some Linen Thread around to create a body. The letters were created using the Simple Letters Bigz dies, cut with both Chocolate Chip cardstock and our chipboard.
Have a great night! I'm off to bed!
