The Paper Trail Kit Reveal - Challenge #1
I was lucky enough to be a guest designer for The Paper Trail for the Month of May. For this month there are many challenges to enter and the first one is a color challenge!! For this fun challenge at The (Paper) Trail Makers it was to use these colors:
They go perfect with the May kit which includes the new Nikki Sivils Rain Line, they are such sweet and adorable pages. The colors screamed to me fun and fresh, so I used pictures of my friend's son and his first dog Goldie. They were playing around in the backyard and Dustin tried to ride him like a horse, so cute!!
Using a sketch from Pagemaps I created the fun layout above. I love to stitch on my layouts, it adds such a wonderful look to the page. I also love those Nikki Sivils buttons, so cute!!
I also love to use layers of borders. I used a regular punch scallop border on the bottom, then a strip of Nikki Sivils umbrella paper, then and orange/yellow cardstock to cut the final border trim at the top using my Cricut and a cutter file.
I used these wonderful cutter files are from RS Mobley Designs (File # RM00145) to cut the border, I then took yarn and wove it through the holes in the cut border.
This layout was also created for the challenge at Clear it Out. The challenge going on right now is all about ribbon/fibers. I love to try and find fun uses for the fibers I have, so I love the idea of weaving the yarn through the border.
