I really don't like waste and use up every scrap of my stash if I can - I'm sure I'm not the only one who cant bear to throw pretty paper away - no matter how small the snippet is - it can be used! :D
I took the page with me to the Scrapfest to show the ladies that every last bit of their kit from my class could be used to create another page - some have asked for me to share how I created my second page - so Ive added "how to's" here.
This page used Heidi Swapp paper and glossy page accents, along with Prima Say it in Crystals, Scenic Route Alpha Stickers, Chatterbox stamps, Daisy D's rubons, Rusty Pickle Buttons and Bazzil Ribbon.
I hand cut the decorative floral border before matting my photograph on to a larger piece of paper. A scrap of Scenic Route paper was used to create a ribbon border, which teamed up nicely with the black spotted ribbon strip from the set of Heidi Swapp page accents.
The kit contained a large Heidi Swapp triangular photo corner which I simply cut in half to make two, which I then used to add decorative corners of my matted image.
Using Stazon, I stamped images on to a sheet of printable acetate - repeat stamping the same image created the transparent border.....a quick and easy way to create a "Hambly" effect border for your pages at a fraction of the cost :D
I mounted some of the acetate Chatterbox stamped images on to patterned paper before adding them to the page using 3d foam pads. I use either Glossy Accents/Diamond glaze to fix acetate (...or even the good old Pritt stick as it dries clear and doesn't show :) )
Before attaching the Heidi Swapp butterflies to the page, I slightly folded them to lift the wings, giving the illusion they have just settled on the page before taking flight.
Using Scenic Route alpha stickers and Daisy D rubons I created the title.....outlining the white rubons with a black fine line journaling pen to give the letters more definition.
The Prima Crystal frame was cut in half and positioned around the Heidi Swapp circular page accents - I love a lil bit of *bling* on my pages :D
Buttons were sewn in place and ribbon added to one of the stamped frame accents.
I hope that helps???
