Love My Life-Step By Step-MCS June Kit



My idea for this, the first page that I created with My Creative Scrapbook's June main kit, was to piece together a quilt-like center portion from all the beautiful patterned papers in the kit. But first, I created a background with a bit of spray and several splatters of mist on white cardstock:



Next I cut 2-inch squares from the patterned papers that I chose. A paper punch would have made this so much easier! ;)


I also wanted to use a couple of thin strips from this paper:


Specifically, these. (You'll see!)


 Here are my strips and squares, inked and arranged in the center of my background paper:


After adhering my photo to the upper right hand side,


I began my title on the lower left, using a wood veneer word from 1Canoe2,


then finished the phrase with Thickers (all included in June's main kit):


Layered chipboard pieces enhance the title,


and add dimension to the page elsewhere:


One of the patterned papers in the kit was made to be cut up into journaling blocks, embellishing strips and 2x3 inch cards. Here's how I chose to use them:


Fussy cut butterflies and enamel dots along with the words cut from the cards make a cute little cluster next to my photo:

The cut out phrase from one of the 2x3 cards was the perfect size for a banner:


The end result: a pretty uncluttered page. I actually find that I LIKE the white space along the top and bottom! Eventually, I 'll add a little journaling to the bottom left...when I think of what I want to say! ;)


And there's the finished page!
