I love this happy paper from Doodlebug that was included in the May kit at My Creative Scrapbook. I had a lot of fun with this page. The background is made from one sheet of patterned paper.
The pink polka dot paper is the reverse side of the chevron stripe. To use both sides, I carefully cut out the middle of the chevron paper using my trimmer. That gave me two pieces: the chevron and the polka dot. In between, I layered a piece of white cardstock then stitched the 3 layers together.
Next, I added a photo mat, layering paper and stickers. I also added hidden journaling under the photo with a pink pull-out tab.
To finish the page, I added a ribbon flower to the banner trio at the top. It was really easy to make.
I used the ribbon in the kit and cut three pieces, 5 inches in length. I folded each end of the ribbon to the middle and secured it. I layered the ribbon loops on top of each other in a star shape. To embellish it, I added a circle cut from burlap and a threaded ribbon.
The completed layout. Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
