Blast Off with Some Seam Binding

OOOoohhhh, I am in love with the new Seam Binding in stock at The Beary Scrap. It is versatile and comes in so many great colors! I had a lot of fun adding it to our sketch this week and using it to make my card blast off!


This sketch is just as versatile as the seam binding-- last week I used it to make a two page 12 x 12 layout and then this week brought it down to size in a 6 x 6 card. That's what I love about sketches-- they just jumpstart my brain and I can go anywhere from there!

I used Bo Bunny's Blast Off papers-- check out the cute 6 x 6 paper pads Kimm has in stock at the store, they are a great deal! I really like the colors of these papers-- strong, vivid colors that are perfect for boys but could also work for some cute baby or birthday projects.



Instead of trying to find embellishments to match, I just cut my own from some of the papers (the bigger rockets are from as 12 x 12 page I got locally). All this fussy cutting does take time but it's worth it in the end as the rockets and stars match so perfectly.

Rockets and stars just screamed out for glitter and so I liberally added Stickles to all my cut out embellishments. With all the colors of Stickles available, I had colors for all my stars. Then I popped up the rockets and some of the stars with foam squares for dimension.


For my last bit of dimension, I added that great seam binding, this time in white to simulate the cloud left by a rocket blasting off. It was so quick and easy-- just secured with some glue dots-- and really adds a lot.

Here's a quick peek at the inside:
