Designer’s Choice with Jennifer
Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! It’s Jennifer today with my Designer’s Choice project for January.
This month’s kit is overflowing with stickers and embellishments, which prompted me to create this project that uses several of them in a small grid pattern.
I began by cutting 2×2-inch squares of patterned paper and adhering them to the top half of the background paper. When I laid the photo on the grid, it seemed a little to large so I added border strips along the top and bottom of the grid. The fringe-patterned paper is one of my favorites this month! I ended up cutting it into strips and then creating actual fringes along the print lines of the paper. Once I had it in place, I machine-stitch the top to give it a softer feel.
With my embellishments in place and the fringe sewn down, I adhered my photo to the layout using foam squares to raise it to the same height as the embellishment grid. I also added a few drops of paint on the background.
The title on the layout was created using my Silhouette Cameo and a font on my computer. I cut several “love” sentiments along with “this girl” and cascaded them down the photo.
The finished layout is quite busy but works. I love that I was able to use the Valentine-themed papers and embellishments on a non-holiday photo!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create!
