Poppin' Tags @ Audrey's with my scrappy BFF's

I'm here to share a couple of projects I made using A Charmed Life and DIY Boutique collections.

"Poppin' Tags" PageMaps Layout | DIY Boutique
Dash by Heather Leopard SS

I love working with sketches so when the opportunity to worj with Becky Fleck's March PageMaps presented itself, I jumped at the opportunity. The sketch was perfect for documenting a girl's weekend with some of my favorite scrappy friends. The DIY Boutique collection, with it's bright colors and great sentiments, was a sure fit for fun times with friends.

To create this layout, take a peek at the PageMaps sketch and follow these easy steps:
  1. Trim a 1/2" inch off the top and one side of the grey woodgrain paper.
  2. Center over the polka dot paper and adhere.
  3. Stitch a 9" diameter circlein the upper right of the page, approximately 1 1/2" from the top of the grey and 1/4"  from the right. TIP:Draw your circle in light pencil first to use as a stitching guide. Erase after you've sewn  on the page.
  4. Cut a 6" diameter circle out of the bright pink paper.
  5. Cut a 5" circle out of the black/white polka dot. Adhere inside the pink circle. TIP: This is the B side of the pink paper so I cut these at the same time by simply cutting them inside each other. I just flipped the middle over and it was a perfect fit inside the pink circle.
  6. Stitch it to the layout overlapping the larger stitched circle as well as overlapping the black polka dot on the side.
  7. Cut frames out of the frame paper in the 6x6 paper pad. Arrange them around your photo.
  8. Embellish with sentiments, stickers, brads, etc.
  9. Add cards to the top and bottom to pull the layout together. 
  10. Embellish with more stickers, enamel dots, brads, mist, etc.
  11. Add your title and journaling to complete the page.
