curls and swirls...

Right now I'm busily creating for the next Papertrey Ink release, which I think you are going to love! Fall is always one of my favorite times to create - think leaves, pumpkins, grateful mini albums, etc. :) Meanwhile, I'd love to share this page I made a long while back for the Scrapbooking Girls e-book, which you can find in my sidebar. --->
For me, it's always hard to come up with the journaling. I have many pics that I adore, but never quite know what to say about them! Here I decided to use these pictures of Kati to focus on a physical attribute - her curls. First, I printed the title out in Photoshop onto white cardstock in the center, along with the journaling above it, leaving room in the bottom corner for the 2 photos.
Last, I wanted to add some dimension by stitching the "curls" onto the page, so I drew them out with a pencil first, then hand stitched along the lines.
Please check out the e-books, they are so much fun and have lots of ideas for journaling! There are many journaling prompts to get you started in the Scrapbooking Girls e-book!

I also wanted to announce the winner of the CREATE magazine. Congratulations goes to Susie! Please email me: dflanders71@hotmail.com with your mailing adress.

Wonderful.

And it is nice to read, that I'm not the only one having difficulties with the journaling.

Thanks for sharing. ines

This layout is adorable. I love the way you incorporate hand stitching in your work. It seems to make each piece a bit more special. And your daughter's curls truly ARE amazing. :-)

Love this layout. So cute. I was wondering what type of printer and what cardstock do you use. I use mostly PTI but I can't use it in my printer. My e-mail is obryantdetra@gmail.com if you wouldn't mind giving me this info.
