i'm hosting the Studio Calico blog challenge this week...time to use some of those rub-ons!! supplies: State Fair Tags + State Fair Stickers + SC Chipboard Letters + Cloud Rub-ons + Red Alpha Rub-Ons + Veneer Hearts + State Fair Tickets Please Paper + State Fair Step Right Up paper + Double Scallop Border Punch
this page didn't start out like this at all, lol...i accidentally printed index size photos of Allie instead of some wallets, but i figured 'what the heck'! so i cut them out, painted around the edges and grouped them together like one larger photo. i used two of the die-cut tags to kind of 'point' to the photos...then added some of the grey cloud rub-ons to kind of tie in with the 'tough days' theme. (note about the rub-ons: SC has told us that no more of the new rub-on releases will be made...so if you were on the fence, grab them while you can!)
here's a fun trick: i LOVE when 'errors' turn out ok! i had intially cut the yellow side of the Tickets Please paper with this scalloped border punch...then trimmed it down, etc. eventually deciding it didn't 'work' how i initially planned, lol. there were a few of these cut bits laying in the 'discard pile' of my desk and they caught my eye. VOILA! an idea hatched, lol!
start with the Double Embossed Scallop Border Punch + Scissors + Paper of choice.
cut yourself a border.
trim that border.
start cutting on either side of the 'point' of the scallop...if you feel the need to be super-precise, use your trimmer, lol.
now cut on the other side of the 'point' of the scallop.
banner flag #1!
banner flag #1!
how easy is THAT?!
and it allows you to make a fun banner in ANY paper/cardstock you like. you can make them as tall or as short as you prefer as well...just adjust how much of the original paper you trim away!!
so there you have it.
2 different 'errors' that played out well on this page.
once i added the journaling about my 'tween girl, i was done.
and when she snuck up to see what i was doing and read my notes, we hugged it out.
suddenly that tough day turned just a bit brighter.
