Fond Farewell

This will be last post as a guest designer for The Beary Scrap. Before I show you all my layout, I just want to say how happy I am to have had this experience. Thank you for coming to look at my layouts and cards and thank you for giving me the privilege of being able to see all of your beautiful entries in our challenges. 


For this layout, I challenged myself to use the scraps from last week's layouts. I am sure I am not alone when I say I have a big bin of paper scraps that I can't bear to throw out but never seem to turn to them when it comes to making something. So the pile just keeps getting bigger! I figured the best plan of attack was to use them right away. 



I took my pile of scraps from the Cosmo Cricket 6x6 pads UpcycleSocial Club, and Salt Air and cut them into varying lengths, some at an angle. I didn't hesitate to use the negatives of the circles I punched or the little remaining pieces of border-punched paper. I adhered all the strips with my Pink ATG and then hand pierced a curlicue border all the way around the edges of the layout, and stitched with embroidery floss. 

Using spray mists (check out the Glimmer Mist on sale), I splattered a few inky blotches over the background.


Using Pink Paislee Artisan Tape, I made some pennants as an embellishment. I simply wrapped tape around the top of the toothpicks and then cut the ends of the tape into pennant shapes. 

Thank you so much for looking. I really look forward to seeing what sorts of embellishments you come up with! Remember, you have until 11:59 on June 30th to be entered to win a gift card to The Beary Scrap store.
