Hello Summer !

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are all having a great summer so far, we just got back from camping and the weather was perfect !!
Today I am sharing a layout I created as a finalist for the May Arts Ribbon design team call. I'd love to be one of the new  Prima Ribbonista ! Fingers crossed :)


Hello Summer !

Supplies for this layout are from Fancy Pants Designs (Making Waves collection), May Arts Ribbon, Spellbinders and My Mind's Eye.

Here's a look at how I created this Summer themed layout.


Step 1- Create an anchor with wire and pliers.

 

Step 2- Wrap navy paper cord from May Arts Ribbon adding bits of glue to hold into place.


Step 3- Attach a small piece of white paper cord on the loop of the anchor.

 

Step 4- I love adding texture to background paper and for this project I decided to add spirals of paper cord in light blue, navy and white. I love how malleable this cord is.


Step 5- Machine stitch into place, if desired.


Step 6- Trim 3 various pieces of ribbon 2 inches long, adhere behind narrow strip of navy paper. 
For this project, I used 3/4" Twill/Chevron in yellow and light blue and 7/8" Grosgrain horizontal stripes ribbon in orange.


Step 7- Fold ribbons over and trim off into points to create flags. Machine stitch the small flags into place.


Step 8- Adhere/machine stitch a 12" piece of yellow chevron ribbon on the left side of layout ,adding a strip of striped paper and a star cardstock die piece on each side.


Here's a close up of that hand crafted anchor :)


and a close up of the small flags.




 I hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial.
As always, thanks for visiting.....wish me luck !

Loving this moment

Hello , sharing a layout I created with the Office Sweet collection from Fancy Pants Designs.
I rarely scrapbook about myself and I know I should do it more. This photo was taken in Phoenix at the Spellbinders retreat last November. It felt awesome to just sit by the pool after a long day of travel from the east coast !!


Loving this moment

The decorative tag was made with  new dies from Spellbinders called Fancy Framed  Tags Four.
That's it from me today. 
Happy father's Day to all the dads out there !
