May 2019 Recap Layout

 Still working on catching up on my scrapbooking at my Scrapbook with me events. At my most recent event I completed this layout for my May 2019 recap pages. I had so much fun working with the Serenity paper and the December Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart in creating this layout.

The inspiration for this layout came from this sketch from the Page Maps blog. You can find this sketch along with others here.

I added a photo mat to both pages for some extra color. I created the scallop border for this using 2 1/4" circles that I cut out and adhered to a strip of cardstock. I lined them up on my mat and then trimmed off one side. 

I used the zip strip from the paper and a postage stamp style border punch I had in my tool stash to create some of the rick-rack style elements the sketch called for. I used the Mini Stapler to attach the ends of the strips as if they were rick-rack. I die cut the letters for the title using the Classic Alphabet Thin Cuts.

I also used the December Stamp of the Month to create the floral embellishments. I stamped the floral pieces in Intense Black Exclusive Inks and then colored the leaves and flowers with Triblend makers. I fussy cut the flowers out and cut one of the groupings apart to create 2 separate pieces. I added some Blue Belle Glitter Gems for some bling.

If you are interested in joining me for one of my Scrapbook with me events, make sure to follow me on Facebook so you get the notifications of my upcoming events.
