I fell in love with the American Crafts Dear Lizzy collection, but was worried that I'd have nothing to scrap with the pretty pastels. Most of my photos were boys, travel, beach, anything but girly. I'm always behind the camera and rarely in front! But I had forgotten about this silly little picture, taken in a mirror a couple of years ago. There it was, sitting in an envelope, waiting for these very papers.
Somewhat addicted to the cute mason jars printed on one of the patterned papers, I had already used one on a previous layout to "hold" confetti. Still I couldn't resist using another one of those adorable jars. This time it holds my little title, my very tiny title. I had no other letters that looked right, and these old Basic Grey stickers were the perfect color, if but a bit small. I think it works.
Girly colors, flowery papers, and even bling! I was using everything pretty on this utterly feminine page, and had a nice pastel colored ribbon that was begging to be put to use. But where and how? In the end I decided to try my hand at a ribbon "yo-yo" and it wasn't as difficult as I imagined. I had no idea how much ribbon was needed so I cut a rather long piece and began stitching along one side gathering it up as I went. The ribbon curled up naturally and when it began to turn back upon itself, I added a few more stitches, cut the ribbon, and stitched the pieces together. Easy-peasy! I think I've found another use for my ribbon stash!
So now I've scrapped a prom pic and one of myself with these gorgeous papers. What can I do next?
