Intrigued by you

Hey Everyone! I hope you had a great Monday. I decided to make a quick scrap layout. So, that meant a 8.5" x 11" design. When scrapping, I'm usually inspired by the photo and select that first. I usually edit it to my liking, this time a black and white, then I come up with a sketch. After that, I am inspired by product to incorporate into the sketched design. This is my usual process probably for cards too (just realizing that as I type it out)! It's a pretty clean and simple layout. I like to keep the photos the focal point of my layouts because in my opinion that is the true reason for scrapping them. I really do not like to journal...yet. I like quick and simple titles, so this is how I did it...

  1. Adhere doily to cardstock.
  2. Add stitching.
  3. Die cut circle frame, then adhere to cardstock.
  4. Print photo, then adhere to cardstock.
  5. Add vintage trims.
  6. Add flowers.
  7. Adhere letters stickers for title and embellish with rhinestones.

Cardstock :: Papertrey Ink - aqua mist; Paper Source - white
Embellishments :: Maya Road - vintage crochet zig zag white trim; Webster's Pages - aqua trim; Prima - flowers; Basic Grey - piper micro-chip stickers (dark chocolate chip); October Afternoon - mini market stickers (ledger); Craft Supply - doily (from a restaurant*), thread
Tools :: Janome - sewing machine; Spellbinders - LF-114 grand circles, G-001 grand calibur

Thanks so much for your visit. Take care!
