Getting Cozy Chilling Here | Patricia Roebuck July 26, 2019 07:00
Isn't it fun to play with the cut files and after finishing one project, it inspires you with another idea of using the same or similar cut files. This Traveler's Notebook spread is a spin off of using the same Graphic Frames I used on my first post this month here, but instead of the Simple Scallop Strips, I used the Borders 1 cut file.
Combining the Borders 1 cut file with a beautiful colorful pattern paper created repetition, texture, and a quick way to fill your Travelers Notebook. I cut two of the Borders 1 styles to spread across my page but instead of going horizontal, I went vertical.
I did a single machine stitching the length of each one, this helped to fold up the sides to create dimension and a great way to add or in this case tuck embellishments under them. I added adhesive just to the center of each border to adhere.
I continued the borders to the right side doing the same technique, but also tucked and adhered a Graphic Frame cut from the same pattern paper partially under them. For this right page, I also added another complementary pattern paper under a smaller piece of white cardstock for my background, adding a straight stitch to each side of my background. All of this creates some nice texture, color, and repetition to the stitching I already have.
Before I adhered everything in place, I sent this through my typewriter to add journaling. Then I tucked more embellishments under my borders, added some stamping and embellishments to finish.
Thank you so much for joining me today. Happy creating!
