{ Prompt 2 }

Here is page one of my album - paper scraps. Still doing 6x12 pages. I know that some of you thought the album cover was a card, I know, I like it so much I might make a card like that. This one should look more like a page, I hope, with the photo (of me).

I love my paper scraps. I have a little container on my desk, pretty small, that I keep these little strips. I pulled them all out and arranged them on the page. I didn't really worry too much if they all go together. Paper strips: October Afternoon, Sassafras Lass, Collage Press, Pink Paislee, Scenic Route, Studio Calico, white cardstock and Bazzill Just the Edge strip. I used a tiny bit of tape to hold them down and then I used my sewing machine to stitch the strips in place. I don't know if you can see the first (my last) row, I ran out of thread. I just kept sewing. The metal words (Making Memories) were still out on the desk from my cover page, and they fit perfectly. I stamped the bird cage from Believe Birds (WP277) stamp set by Impression Obsession. I love that stamp set. I have a fun little project coming up using the same set. I repeated the flower from the cover page, but I added more crepe paper to the base. My friend Dani has a great video tutorial for that technique. I got my watercolor pencils out! I love them, I don't know why I don't use them more. They are out now so I have no excuses. I painted the Jenni Bowlin journaling card with watercolor pencils. So pretty. I need more of those!!!! I still need to add journaling.

***There were some questions about my scrapbook room furniture. Thank you so much. I am glad you like it. The white shelves are from The Container Store - Elfa, and they go on sale all the time. My desk is from Ikea. The EZ View desktop I won on a blog!!! I thought it was this small thing that sits on your desk...imagine my surprise when this huge box arrived. The bottom of the EZ View is made out of two shelves from Ikea, the same ones that are holding my desk. The rolling carts are from The Container Store and they hold 12x12 containers, the smaller carts are from JoAnns and they hold my embellishments, stamps, punches.... Let me know if you have any other questions.

  6. Gorgeous page! Your are adorable in the photo! ;o)
    I like how you used random scraps and they all look so great together! And how cool, when your sewing machine ran out of thread and you kept sewing. That looks SOOO neat! Really, really great work, Daniela!

  7. Oh, Daniela, I love this page - so many cute details to look at and be inspired by. I think my favorite is the birdcage stamp with the cute bow on top...or the crepe paper rose that makes me want to go out right now and buy crepe paper...

    Well done!
