Today I'd like to share a layout I made a while ago and forgot to post. I'm calling it my Scrap-tastic layout because I recently participated in a Swap run by Sarabeth at www.swappinscraps.blogspot.com that called for us to put together packages of our patterned paper scraps and swap them with a Swap Buddy. Well I lucked out in the Swap Buddy department because my Buddy had the most beautiful, organized scraps you could have ever imagined. (Thanks Margie! www.bumblesandfairytales.blogspot.com) Now that I had gotten this new stash of scraps I wondered what I'd do with it. It didn't take me too long to find the perfect project. I was visiting a blog that I love to get ideas from. It belongs to Kathryn at www.thescrapbeach.blogspot.com and I found my project. It was a starburst scrapbook layout. It sounded like a fun idea and I had never tried one, so I figured what the heck. To make this layout I thought I'd use some of Margie's great scraps, and here is what I came up with.
All the lovely patterned papers are the scraps - aren't they great! I chose to do my starburst a little differently than Kathryn's, I added little 1/4 strips of solid paper in between the sections to make the papers stand out a bit more. The solid papers, are all by Recollections. I cut two shapes using my Cricut and stamped them with a coordinating stamp from Close to My Heart. The sentiment stamp, ink and metal brad are also CTMH. The metal corners are by Momenta. And, of course, that beautiful boy in the picture is my Jackson.
Thanks for stopping by.
