Lucky 12×12 scrapbook page: Lost & Found 2

March 13th, 2012

i scrapbooked one of my favorite pictures of my family…and titled my page “so happy, so lucky” since it’s almost st. patrick’s day! i used this fun green, glittery quatrefoil paper from the lost & found 2 collection: rosy “everything.”

i picked out a few green papers from that same collection…i love to use color that goes with a theme/holiday…you don’t necessarily have to use something with shamrocks or little leprechauns to scrapbook something about st. patrick’s day!

i cut out a piece from this paper, so that i could use the back side of it, i loved the printed words and the green swirls…if you see that part of your paper will be hidden any way, might as well cut it up so that you can utilize more of your paper! i do this a lot, especially if it’s double sided patterned paper and i only happen to have one sheet! and even though i loved the coral orange text on the paper, i decided to cover it up to go for a green monochromatic page.

here’s where i added a scrap square piece i cut out…added a banner stamp and a green brad!

i used the banner stamp…just a corner of it…i liked the “3” on it…for my three kids.

ran a tag through my printer for some journaling, added a few stamps at the bottom.

my sewing machine wasn’t liking my adhesive runner that i used…i just left it instead of trying to match up the holes again, embrace imperfection, right?
