I hope you are all well!! Gwen here today to share another layout with you. This one may have you all wondering why on earth I would scrap about doughnuts, but I say why not!! Miss C was making a huge deal about International Donut day, she had marked it in her calendar and was counting down the days so it was a big deal in our house! She was not going to let it go until she got a doughnut on International Donut day! AND of course, such an occasion MUST be scrapbooked!! For those wondering, it is on the first Friday of June so go ahead and mark it in your calendar now :)
Once I was happy with the background placement, I went about stitching it all down with my sewing machine. Next, it was time to place my photo and photo mat, for this I've used a sheet of pattern paper and a piece of scrap and a paper doily. I then mounted it all on foam to help separate it from the background.
Next, it was time to add my title, for this I have used the Puffy Alphabet Stickers. I just love how you can stitch these down; I've used grey here which picks up my photo and there is also a touch of grey in the pattern papers I have used.
I then went about creating 2 small clusters of embellishments. One at the top of the page and the other in the bottom right-hand side of my photo. These are not very detailed or layered, they were really just a few buttons and a paper flower from Little Birdie. You can find the heart buttons here and the Jewelled Cabochons here. With the paper layers going on in my background, I did want to keep my embellishments simple, it was really just some finishing touches I was adding.
Here you can see that I hand stitched the buttons on (after adding a very small amount of glue to hold them in place and the page was done! I really love how it turned out and I hope next year, you celebrate International Donut Day, I'm pretty sure we will be!
thanks for popping by today
