One-page Week, Part 1

One-page Sketch #14

"Mommy & Abbie" by Christine Chain
Supplies - patterned paper: My Mind's Eye, Little Yellow Bicycle, Crate Paper, We R Memory Keepers, Fancy Pants; letter stickers and stickers: October Afternoon; postcard: unknown (in my Green Tangerine's kit club - September), October Afternoon; other: pop dots and embroidery floss

1) This isn't really a "change" I made, but I'm proud of myself so I'll share:

I had this fun piece of gray paper with the lacy edge in my kit club box, begging to be used. However, I had already cut a big chunk out of one side that I'd used on a previous layout. Groan.

Then I noticed the big photo block covering a bunch of the background paper. Hmmm. So I cut my gray paper in half and flipped the side with a piece cut out. Then I taped the two halves back together, so there is now a hole in the middle of my page. Make sense? That hole is now covered up and I was able to use the gray paper! Yay!

2) Since it's not a birthday layout, I didn't want to include birthday candles in my title block. I used a few circles and word stickers instead, popping up the "you + me" sticker (so perfect for this layout!).

I also omitted the stitching, but the postcard embellishment I used had a light line defining the edge.

3) I decided to stitch my banner to my layout rather than try to string the paper.

I used a ribbon scrap draped across the page to figure out where I wanted each piece of paper to go and then attached them. Then I used my Sew-Easy tool to punch holes. No pencil lines needed! Score!

This is going to be a great week of inspiration.

Christine - What a great layout. I really like your choice of colours. That banner is sweet and your title is awesome too.

Jill - I am so jealous of your digital talent. I really want to scraplift this layout but used 'real' paper. Awesome job!

Cute layout...but traditions is spelled wrong.
