Hello friends! Kelly Xenos here with my last project as your July Guest Designer. First of all, I want to thank you so much for having me this month! I have had such a great time playing with really awesome October Afternoon products and sharing my creations here with you.
For my last project I made a traditional 8.5"x11" layout using items from the Summertime collection. I started with an 8.5"x7.5" photo to tell the story of how my husband fixed up my old bike for my birthday present.
Once again I'm using one large photo, which I love doing, and then I created a section at the bottom for my journaling. I thought this green memory card would be awesome to use since it had the bike and using a pocket pages card as a journaling card on a layout is a great way to use up extra cards you have in your stash! I then attached different pieces of patterned paper on each side with the zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine.
For the embellishments I used Pop Drop stars and the Oh Happy Day Pillow Puff sticker. These stickers give such great dimension! I also used one of the Tin Pins that says Love This because the green color tied in so well with the journaling card.
Thanks again and I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer!
