Morning! Today I had "Thursday's Trend" on the Pink Paislee blog and decided to do a little tutorial on how to make these ribbon flowers. Stop over to their blog to see, these flowers are very easy to make! I have been seeing a lot of people making their own flowers lately. It's a great way to save money. (And fun too!)
For this page, I combined some of the Bayberry Cottage papers (green die cut and houndstooth) with some of the 365 line (background paper, red swirl paper, ribbon, brad, dark green paper). I had to cut some of the houndstooth letters down since I was out of L's, V's and E's. I used a T for the L, a Y for V, and an 8 for the E.
The photos are of my girls this past summer. They have a crazy sort of sisterly love that cracks me up. :)
Another trend in scrapbooking that I've been seeing a lot lately are titles and journaling done on vellum. I didn't use vellum here, I just printed the big title directly onto my patterned paper, but I think I achieved a similar look. I still have vellum from several years ago! It pays to be a pack rat sometimes. lol
What are some other trends you love right now? I had some other thoughts when doing my page....doilies are hot now, banners, punches, simple/quick pages, handcutting designs out of patterned paper, vintage, stitching....
