Meet Pattie Beltran

Hi there!! Not to long ago, I helped in gathering some of our talented friends to do work for the TV show, Scrapbook Memories TV. I asked my good friend Pattie to create one of her cute gift card holders.
She created this fun project. It's super fun and easy to make.
Thanks Pattie!

Septemer Layouts and how to's

HI there fellow scrappers. We have this months new layouts. ENJOY!!
Here's a quick one thatI created. (In my garden)

Gretchen's pages ---Using Sugar High

Tanisha's pages--using A little Birdie Told Me

Erin--Using In The Garden

This month it was Danielle's turn to do a how to. You will have fun creating this little project!!

I began with a Maya Road chipboard album that was 5.5 x 5.5 and the My Little Shoebox Orange Marmalade line.

1) Cut paper to fit each page. (5.5 x 5.5)
2) Cut photos to fit. (5.5 x 4 usually)

3 ) Adhere paper and photos from steps 1 & 2. On each left page I placed paper and on each right page I placed a photo.

4) Use a sanding tool to make all the edges of the book nice and even.

5) I used a Fiskars punch to make a border for each photo. I adhered it to the edge of the photo that did not meet the edge of the book. Occasssionaly I used a sticker.
6) For the left hand pages, I used a die cut and adhered it over the patterned paper. I added journaling, some alphabet stickers in mint, the chipboard buttons or the overlays. Occasionally I added a random sticker or embellishment.
