Here's a close-up of the flower. I cut the circles free-form using scalloped scissors, layered them and just stitched an X over them. When I sew on pages I use very little adhesive, just enough to tack things down. Then I use my sewing machine to do the rest! Like the recipe book I made for my sister using no adhesive. It's easier on the scrapbooking budget, that's for sure, because I go through a lot of tape runners!
This page uses papers from K&Co., Cosmo Cricket, Jenni Bowlin, and one other paper. Good golly, I keep forgetting one product!
You'll also notice that I use a lot of shipping tags. Because I love them. Really, they are so versatile. This one has the sonnet XLIII by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. I realize that it is no longer in the 14 line sonnet format because I had to change it to fit the tag, but the words are still just as beautiful.
I backed this fake chipboard fake button with a layer of the same lace as the top button by zipping some adhesive on the back side edges.
This scalloped fake button is made like the button above, except with the scalloped circle punch.
Now, onto the next page...the Christmas card picture. This is a little bit busy since sometimes I just keep adding things until the page weighs about two pounds. Notice the tag again? Why mess with a good thing? I also used the lovely scalloped circle-pseudo flower again. I dug into my stash to find a Rhonna Farrer diecut patterned paper from a few years ago.
Have a great weekend!
