Frosted Designs Scrapbook Sketch #26

Gorgeous CTMH Roxie Paper Packet

This one page layout was so easy to do because I started with the great sketch from Debbie Burns for Frosted Designs, a photo that makes my heart sing and lots of beautiful papers.  All I had to do was make some embellishments, sew a little, hide some journaling and it was done!

Sketch is flipped on my layout
Sketches are fun because someone has gone to the work of figuring out a good, balanced plan. This provides a great jumping off point to add your own creative spin.  I love this sketch because of it's simplicity, but also because it can be glammed up as much as desired.

Seam binding flowers
The seam binding was originally off-white.  I made a pearl paint, water, re-inker mist concoction to color the ribbon.  After it dried I made these little flowers and adhered them on top of a chipboard flourish embellishment.

Paper rosette made with Martha Stewart Loops edge punch
The photo was matted onto black corrugated cardboard and sewn down on three sides to make a pocket.  The little tag at the top of the matting slides into the pocket to hide the journaling.

Inks: CTMH Bamboo, Smoothie and re-inker
Paper: CTMH Roxie B & T, Colonial White and (possibly Judikins?) black corrugated cardboard
Embellishments: CTMH Dimensional Elements Chipboard, CTMH Antique Copper Mini-Medley Accents, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, Glitz Glitter Gel, thread, seam binding, lace ribbon
Tools: Sewing machine, MS Loops edge punch, edge distresser, sponge
