First of all, we can't believe it's already August ... where did July go?
Many of us will create beautiful layouts that document a special moment in time for us, only to have them kept in our bags until the next crop, or in an album that seldom gets looked at. Here, Marcie created a beautiful layout using a scalloped edge 12x12 patter paper for her background that would also look great in a frame hung on a wall as home decoration. Showcase your work and have a easel or a frame where everyone can admire your latest layout... It's time to show them off!
A beautiful border at the bottom grounds the layout and is created by using flowers and buttons.
Marcie create a 4th of July card that we can all celebrate about! She used several different pattern papers in the shape of a square to create a unique background. This is a great technique that can also be used on a 12x12 layout, or substitute another shape like circles for a different look.
Thanks again Marcie for your inspiration!
