Layout 5: February 11, 2011

If you're like me, you have TONS of double sided paper in your stash. In fact, these days you'd be hard-pressed to find a single sided paper at any store! This is a fun technique when you have only one sheet of a double sided paper and you love both sides.

This week's layout also features scraps, flowers, and buttons for a fun & festive page plus a little Copic marker magic.

Paper - Scenic Route, Dream Street (yes, both out of business. I am really using the stash now!), Sassafras Lass
Flowers - Prima,, Daisy D's (another out of biz!)
Buttons, Creative Imaginations,
Doily - Martha Stewart (that's new!)
Star Embellie - Heidi Swapp
Cardstock - Bazzill
Twine -
Stickers - Jenni Bowlin, Making Memories
Crepe Paper - 99 Cents Only Stores
Cloud Scissors - Fiskars
Ink - Clearsnap, Copic

I cut the double sided paper I wanted to feature down to 10x12. I then folded it down so I could see about 3 inches of the "back" and 4 inches of the "front".

I then used the Cloud Scissors to cut a wave along the shorter piece. You can draw an "S" on the back of the paper if you can't freehand this.

Run tape runner along the back of the scalloped edge. Ruffling as you go, stick crepe paper along the entire length of the scalloped edge.

If the ruffle sticks out unevenly from the edge, trim with scissors. Once the ruffle looks good, apply adhesive to glue that folded end down.

Adhere the Ruffled piece of paper to a 12x12 background. Add a 1x12 strip of coordinating paper to the seam between the folded piece and the background.

Add photos to the page with the photos hanging off the edge of the page. Turn the page over to trim.

Adhere a button the one side of the page with a glue dot. String twine around the button and tuck the ends under the 1x12 border strip to secure them to the page. Tie a bow around the twine strips.

Scatter flowers and embellies on the page and adhere.

Add buttons to the centers of the flowers. For a  more cohesive look, I like to use buttons that are the same color as the flowers.

I added a title with plain black and white Jenni Bowlin sticker letters. They didn't look right so I colored them with some Copic Marker. Easy fix for stickers that don't match!

And that's it--easy peasy page. See you next week!!
