You Make Me Smile Scrapbook FramePosted: October 1, 2012
This is one of my favorite photos taken at the Morton Arboretum. This is a 5″ x 7″ photo of Grammy and Papa with Caitie (4 years old) and Payton (2 years old) during the Fall of 2009. I love the Arboretum in Autumn. I thought the Walnut Grove Collection by Pebbles would be perfect to scrap this photo. I’m so proud of this photo that I took (Yay Me) that I wanted something special for it.
First, I trimmed the James Pattern Paper into strips. I just followed the width of the wood pattern and trimmed off any excess paper once it dried. I sanded down the white frame a bit to get rid of the glossiness. Then, I added mod podge to the edges of the frame one at a time using a foam brush. I attached and pressed down my pattern paper. I used a brayer tool to make sure the paper was nice and flat on the frame. No bubbles.
I especially love the pattern paper and burlap leaves I added along with the other embellishments…flower stickers, buttons, and a 3-D Sizzix flower. A title sticker finishes off this 10″ x 10″ layout inside the frame. This photo definitely makes me smile. Love.
Simple and Pretty.
