Hello Karen here with another layout using the beautiful Patio Party collection from Pebbles. Although hot summer days now seems a distant memory, I have a layout to share with you today which captures the memories of summer strawberry picking when my children were small.
I started with a 12 x 12 sheet of white Bazzill cardstock which was trimmed slightly before matting it onto a 12 x 12 sheet of red cardstock and machine stitching round the edge with black thread.
Three 3 x 4 photos and three pieces of 3 x 4 patterned paper cut from a sheet of the Fresh Berries paper were matted on some black cardstock. With black thread I machine stitched around the edges of the pieces of patterned paper before arranging these and the photos in a grid in the centre of the white cardstock. Small scraps of the reverse side of the Fresh berries paper and some of the die cuts from the ephemera pack were tucked underneath and around the grid. I also added a couple of the tags cut from the Just For You patterned paper and threaded these with some bakers twine.
In my DT kit there were some of the die cut chipboard pieces from Scrapiniec.
I snipped a small section out of the The Blueberry Fairy Square Frame to make it into a rectangular frame and added some vellum to the back of it before sticking to my layout.
The Capture the Moment chipboard piece was the perfect size to fit inside the frame.
Stickers from my stash were used for the title and I also added butterflies punched from co-ordinating cardstock.
I finished off my layout with journalling strips printed onto white cardstock.
I've really enjoyed using the Patio Party collection and all the products used can be found in the Papermaze store.
