Scrapping Recipe Challenge #15

The recipe of items to use on a project this week at Sketches! {by Tamara} are:
  • scalloped edges
  • brads
  • monochromatic colors
I love this recipe, even though I struggled with the monochromatic colors at first. However, once I put my layout together, I was just thrilled with the result. Be sure to check out the awesome cards and layouts that were created using this Scrapping Recipe #15!


I used DCWV papers. The layout base is from an Old World Stack, and the threading water punched scalloped edge border on the left side of the page is from Pocket Full of Posies. The journaling piece is from a notebook of Colorbok papers that I just got on clearance at Target. The chipboard piece that I used for my flower center is also Colorbok. I stamped on the white flower with an Autumn Leaves acrylic swirl stamp. The tag is Basic Grey, and that also has an Autumn Leaves stamp on it. I love those circular sentiments. The glitter brads are by Making Memories. I used chalk ink to distress the edges of the border, the journaling piece, and the tag. You can click on the layout to see it larger. I really love the way this layout turned out!

I hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by!
