i know i have scrapped this main photo of alyssa before. but i wanted to get her "eleven year old" birthday photos on a layout. we started taking these photos on the girls birthdays each year, where they hold up the number of fingers that they're turning.
how cute is this pink dot paper? i LOVE it! and all the pattern papers in the floral lane collection are textured. on both sides. they're so pretty. and they are all in stock HERE at 2peas. the new cursive alphabet stickers are from the floral lane collection as well. i added some pebbles and american crafts ribbons for some extra color.
when i did my how-to tuesday tutorial last week, i used some dimensional flower sticker. you see that green piece, under the pink flower button? i had taken the flower stickers off of that piece. for some reason, i still held onto these green leaf pieces, and they were perfect to add underneath the flower buttons. and i love the new candy dots for this collection, which are tiny buttons.
i thought i would share a little tip with you, on these white scalloped edges i like to use from time to time. sometimes, i really do mat full sheets of paper or cardstock, onto another full sheet of paper or cardstock, to get the matted look. but there's times when i want to get the most out of my papers, and don't want to use more paper than i really need to get the matted look.
this is my favorite trick, for adding a nice white mat around my inside paper. i take scrap pieces of white cardstock, and use my scalloped edge border punch along them, before trimming them into skinny strips. i used a 2 x 12 inch piece of white cardstock, to make all 4 edges for this layout. i adhered the pink pattern paper first. and then i added adhesive to my strips, and tucked them under the pink paper. super simple.
