Wednesday

Grandparents


Supplies: Patterned paper: Websters' Pages (base), K & C0 (photo mat), Stamps: Inkadinkado, Chipboard letters: American Crafts, Others: Ribbon, buttons, paper flowers, lace.

This months's challenge at Scrap Inspire Create is up! It is a fun pick & mix challenge where you choose a theme and pick an item from each of the DT member's list. My layout features my maternal grandparents in one of the few studio shots they took together. I kept close to my theme of vintage and chose lace, ribbon, buttons and stamping...I stamped those birds in the background...the "lone" button is actually 2 buttons layered on top of each other....I tried the pleated ribbon technique...it wouldn't stay down so I handstitched it to the paper...which took forever...it didn't occur to me to iron the pleats until after....so silly of me...lol.

*Edited* I won the challenge at Create with this layout! :) Pin It
