Hey there ScrappingClearly friends, Melinda here with you today sharing my latest DT project!
Today I have a PL spread to share but before I do have this photo to share with you!
Anyways, onto the details of our Week 29 for 2016.
Here is the front of the spread
And the back
As you can see I have used lots of the different patterned papers for my cards - I do love to use 6x6 pads for exactly that reason BUT I find myself with a stack of 2x6 strips that I am never sure what to do with! I totally lifted this idea from another very talented PL scrapper Angus K - so a big thank you for the idea!!
You can see here I have just stuck together 2 of the 2x6 strips of paper (using the "branding" strip as the joiner) together to create my 4x6 cards and I so super love this look!! And it's SUPER easy using a paper pad because all of the designs work together!
You will also notice, this is not the best photo, it is quiet blurry but the only photo I got of myself and my boys at the movies so I turned it black and white and the quality is good enough ;)
Here are a few more close ups!
I had enough of the full 6x6 papers left that I was able to also cut 3 4x6 cards from one paper which I think gives a nice balance.
All of those 3x4 cards, know what they are?! They are from the same collection but they are the Ephemera Tags! I have simply chopped them down to size and decorated and journalled on them the same way I would with another 3x4 card. AND using the tags this way means I have extra "ephemera" pieces which you can see in a couple of the close ups above!
I have also used some of the washi tape, enamel dots, decorative buttons, ephemera pieces, word stickers and chipboard elements from the same collection to do a little decorating (AND lots of those pieces are currently ON SALE in the shop right now!!). I added in a little stamping using these stamps from the Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane collection and finished off with some machine stitching and thickers from my stash!
I hope you have enjoyed this post and that perhaps you now have a different way to use up those left over 6x6 pattern paper bits!!
Until next time, happy scrapping!
