This is a springy/summery scrapbook page I created for one of my stamp clubs this month. Every month, in addition to a card or other project, we create a 6x6 page. The goal is at the end of the year everyone will have a nice album to keep or give away as a gift! Some of the months are themed, others are more generic. This one features my daughter Hayley when she was just two years old. I remember the day just like it was yesterday! Chris, Hayley and I decided to take a walk through the nearby Santa Rosa Plateau. We were a little unsure of how Hayley would handle the long walk. She had so much fun running along the trail and exploring nature. Near the end of the walk she ditched her shoes and ran around barefoot. It was a wonderful day! However, I noticed that I got the year wrong in my journaling - it should read 1998!
I try to teach a new technique every month. On this one I demonstrated how to use the SU corner rounder to make a nice scalloped edge, and how to make "faux eyelets" using a paper piercer and a white gel pen. Click here for a quick and easy tutorial by Beate Johns on how to make a scalloped border using the SU corner rounder. You can also check out more of her cool tutorials and artwork on her awesome blog!
To make the eyelets, you simply pierce a hole in the paper using a paper piercer and the SU Mat Pack (makes it SO much easier!), then go over the hole with the white gel pen. Voila - instant "eyelets"!
Supplies used: Doodle This stamp set, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Vanilla cardstock, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive inks, Flower Fusion felt flowers, white gel pen, grosgrain ribbon, and rhinestone brad (non SU).
