Designer’s Choice: Create a Scene

Hiya! I had so much fun being creative with the Make it Happen kit!

I’ve been wanting to scrapbook this story for awhile now, how are cat is somewhat of an apartment celebrity. She hangs out in our front windows and people like to stop by to wave at her. I went searching for photos of her in the window. This one with the blinds between her legs is a recent favorite.


I was playing around with these photos and the kit when I figure out how easy it would be to paper piece a window using scraps. And then when I realized I could make curtains out of vellum, I knew I had to do it!


I also knew I wanted to frame out the entire page so I cut off the edge of my background cardstock and mounted it on the black and cream diagonal stripe. I then stitched, hand drew a line and watercolored around the edges a bit. While I was on this quest to create frames within frames, I thought why not go for it!

I think my favorite thing about this layout is all of the little bits and pieces I used from the kit. There’s just so many bright fun colors!

We’d love to see you create with the Make it Happen kit. Be sure to post it up in the Facebook group. We can’t wait to see what you make!
