Beach Day Layout by Jmgesi

I love seeing what new layouts Jmgesi will create! I hopped over to her layouts at Two Peas in a Bucket a couple of weeks ago and found her newest creation… Beach Day. I was so excited to see that she had used my Beach Freebie Elements and Dandelion Fluff Paper in her layout! I wanted to share her fabulous layout on my site with everyone! Thank you so much Jmgesi for allowing me to do so!

Taking a little break…

So I thought I would take a little break from designing and finish a page that I have been working on for some time. I’ve never been very good about doing my pages in order (chronologically or any other way) so right now my focus is Easter… last Easter… as in 2011. I know, a little late, but it’s how I roll. I’ve starting working with fabric (my new love!!) on my pages and really like how it’s been coming out.

The little green flowers at the top are not apart of the page. They are actually little magnets that hold the layout to the metal rope on the wall.   🙂

The tag I hand stitched from scratch.

I used strips of different patterned fabric and stitched them by hand to my paper. I also used fabric fringe and distressed it with ink before also adding it to my page. Another love of mine… hand stitching on my pages.

Materials Used:
Paper: Basic Grey; Paper for Frames: Basic Grey; Fabric: Hobby Lobby; Fringe & Canvas Tag: Canvas Corp.; Embroidery Floss: Iris; Ribbon: American Crafts; Clouds: My Mind’s Eye Paper with distressed ink; Ink: Ranger
