Last weekend, I went with my good friend, Nicole, to a Diva Designs crop in Topeka, Kansas. I had so much fun and got some cute projects finished. I finished my Gracie layout! Yippee! The neat thing about this side of the layout is that the big picture can be opened to reveal four more pages! This cool idea comes from the pages of the new Magic Scrapbook How-To book. It is fabulous!
The flowers are so bright and happy that I found it easy to find the perfect cardstock to match! I used white cardstock for the base, Topiary green, Lagoon blue, Sunny Yellow, and Hollyhock pink for my colors. Close To My Heart has 60 colors of beautiful true to color cardstock with a white core! You can get 24 sheets of six matching colors, or 24 sheets of one color…it is up to you!
I also used Lagoon blue Mini-Medley Accents and Cocoa Collection of ribbons. I just love the little tags and corduroy ribbon! The title is made of various chipboard letters that I simply used Liquid Glass to adhere the paper after I traced and cut out the letters. (I can’t BEGIN to tell you how much I use Liquid Glass!). Using accents and ribbon on my pages just makes me happy. I also got some stitching in as well by stitching a Tulip red border with embroidery floss on the Sunny Yellow cardstock before I adhered it to my page.
I had so much fun making this page and I hope you find some time to do a little work on your own projects!
