Garnet #10: Snack


I used Kristy Lee's Garnet #10 sketch as my starting point and got busy. I love making my kids fun snacks...probably because THEY love it so much and I had these pictures that weren't the best but they captured the story I wanted to tell so off I went.

The first thing I did was to sew diagonally across my page...just willy nilly in a similar color thread as my background.

Then I added the pictures and popped some of them up. The yellow lattice paper is from DCWV Lemon Flower.

I am loving this new flower punch from EK Success. I filled the center with some MME Lime Twist.

The circular stamp is from Michael's. It was a super buy. I adore it and can think of so many uses...painted centers, buttons, random papers. LOVE.

I cut off a piece of a doily and sewed along the strip as I pleated it. I then added a piece of washi tape over the center for contrast. At first I had a mustard colored tape but it was over powering on that side.
I hope you all have a great weekend and if you have time stop by Scrapbook Steals blog and check out the new gem sketch series starting on Wednesday. They have great prizes (drawn randomly)!!!
For this set of 10 layouts the prize is a CINCH!!!!! WHOA!!!
