Today I made a really colorful layout. It is even more awesome than I anticipated! Love it!
I started with a piece of dark tan cardstock. I had a cute paper strip to go across the top and another one for the bottom. I went ahead and adhered them. Then I started layering ribbons all the way down the page. I adhered them about 3/4 the way over (and I wrapped the ribbons to the back side of the page on the left side – I adhered them on the back of the cardstock). Then I trimmed the ribbons in different manners. Some were straight, some slanted, and others cut in a v. On two pieces of wide denim ribbon I wrapped it all the way around and adhered it on the back on both sides. Then I tied a bow made of white twine around all the loose ends of ribbon. I tied it at different intervals. Finally, using a line adhesive, I adhered the end of the ribbon – from the tied on bow on – to the cardstock.
After the ribbons were done I matted the picture that I wanted to put on the page and adhered it onto the ribbons/cardstock. I added another embellishment that I have been waiting for the perfect layout. It is a spinner that says “I LOVE this” and points at different words. I pointed it at the word FAMILY.
I love how it turned out. And I love this family. Now they’ve added another sweet boy to their group. 🙂
I hope your day is beautiful!
