I stamped two faux stitching lines from the brand-new Repeat After Me set of stamps from myStampBOX. Look for it soon in the mSB store! I distressed the edges then layered it onto a sanded Core'dinations cardstock mat. I tucked in a little set of polka dot punched tabs on the side for a pop of color. The title for this layout comes from the Sigh Gush Gasp set of mSB stamps.
I loved trying this gathered ribbon technique using Glossy Accents. I cut the Bo Bunny ribbon in half since it was too wide for my project right from package. A Graphic 45 chipboard button finished off this border.
I LOVE playing with pre-embossed cardstock and embossing my own, so my leaf border uses both. I tucked in some Maya Road jeweled pins tied off with a little jute as a final touch.
Here's a little tip: Don't cover up cool patterns on paper. Use an exacto knife to cut away the part of the pattern that overlaps your photo. Tuck the photo in and enjoy how the pattern becomes part of the design. It's certainly not an original idea, but it's a good one to revisit when the time is right.
I hope you enjoyed this layout and all the fun goodies. Happy scrapping!
