It must be the first of the month again because I actually scrapped!!! ;) If it wasn't for my gig with Coordinates I seriously don't think that I would ever force myself to sit down and create a page these days. I LOVE to do it, it's just getting harder and harder to find the time as the kids get older and I seem to get busier! :) Here are a few sneak peeks of the Caribbean Breeze kit. I have been SO bad about developing pictures lately since my neighborhood Ritz closed..I had to borrow a few of my neighbor's pictures that I took a little bit ago. :)
I LOVE to create these ribbon borders...especially when I have such fun ribbon to work with. They are super easy and I think add a really fun look to your page. Bestof all...they are SUPER easy!! Simply fold your ribbon over so that it creates a ruffle and staple it in place, then fold another ruffle and staple, another one...staple etc. You can let your staples show for a more rustic look like I did on the card, hide the staples underneath a picture like I did in the layout for a cleaner look, or, if you can't hide them with a page element but still want that cleaner look, simply hide them amongst the folds. This means you have to be a little more careful when you are creating your folds and pay more attention to where you are placing your staples, but it is still very easy. Give it a try!!
Have a great day!
