A couple of weeks ago I posted a link on the weekly update on the SSN Blog to Chelsea Cook’s blog to show you her scrapbooking layouts which are lovely. I also said that I would “Scraplift” one of them.
Well actually I decided to make Sketch using a couple of Chelsea’s layouts (from her gallery) for the June SimplyScrapbookingNow Newsletter. And I made my own 12×12 scrapbook page yesterday from the sketch and it looks like this… (click on the picture for an enlargement)
Below is my sketch which I created from two of Chelsea’s pages (pictured underneath the sketch!)
I took the layers of paper strips idea from this layout …
… and the circle and journaling elements from this page to create the sketch.
Here are some close-ups of my page. This picture shows the hand stitching. TIP: It’s always best to prick the holes before sewing.
In the picture below you can see some sparkly brads. The blue one (in the white flower) is a “sugared” brad which I was given as part of a stash swap. The green one is an ordinary brad which I covered in Stickles glitter glue! It does the same job. I also added the same glitter glue to the pink Butterfly brad too.
