March 2011 CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop – Scrapbook Techniques

This month’s blog hop focuses on different scrapbooking techniques.  There are so many ideas out there!  Today, I will be showing you ways to use your patterned paper to create your own custom embellishments.

The hop is a circle so if you are starting here, just continue until you make your way back.  If you are already hopping along you should have come from Nikka’s blog.  You can see a list of all the hop participants in my previous post.

Supplies used are all CTMH: Boom-Di-Ada Paper Pack, antique brads, Spot On Backgrounds stamp set, and Autumn Terracotta ink.  I used a sketch from My Little Sketch Book.

The paper I used is retired but you can use any patterned paper, there are many current ones that are similar, or you probably have some in your stash!  The “ribbon” border along the bottom is made by cutting strips of paper and adding brads for a 3D look.  The flowers are also cut from patterned paper and layered using 3D foam tape and brads for a finished embellished look.  Journaling will go on the strips on the right page.  Below is the paper that I cut up and a closeup of the flowers.

Tracy is your next stop!
