Hi everyone, Thank you for stopping by today. My name is MiMi Dibble. I am really happy to be guest blogging today for Daisy. I blog over at thescrapinator5000.
Today I was asked to complete sketch # 14 using one of the printables from the I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose September 2012. I picked one of the new 8.5x11 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper- "Grunge Planks".
I picked this paper for three reasons. One, it's 8.5x11 and I really like working with that size paper. Two, I really like the natural look of it. I like a lot of nature themed things so this was a good fit for me. The last reason is because I really need to make a daybook for all my camping pictures from our trip to Lake Michigan this summer. We went camping for five days and I have some beautiful pictures...so I thought...camping...wood... sounds good to me.
Here is what I came up with...
Using Items from the shop:
After hand sewing in my signature of 5 pages, I decorated the cover. I added some Kraft paper, a banner, an arrow (who doesn't love those) and some Thickers to name my book. I gave the banner some dimension by attaching it with foam tape. I punched out and colored some clouds for the top and you're done, just like that.
I have never followed a sketch before, not even a very long time ago when I was a hard core traditional scrapbooker. I kinda did my own thing. I know, I'm such a rebel. The sketch made this cover very easy for me to complete quickly, and trust me when I say I need help being quick.
I hope you enjoyed the post. Please head over to the Zibbet Shop and look around. There are a lot of new 8.5x11 digital scrapbook papers that are really cute to use.
I'll be back on the 25th of this month with another design using a different 8.5x11 digital scrapbook paper.
