Now that I have turned 30, I am starting to really appreciate simplicity. I’ve noticed that over the past few months I have accumulated oodles of supplies that I have to dig through while creating a page. The simple answer to this dilemma? Page Kits! Page Kit’s are perfect when you want to make a few coordinating pages or cards without all the fuss but with all the fun! Even though this page is full of elements and patterns, I still have ribbon, stickers, buttons and plenty of paper left over to use for my next project. Don’t believe me? Well, we’ll let you try for yourself. At the end of this post, we’ll be giving away 5 page kits to a few lucky winners!
To make this page, cut out a few of the flower clusters and strips from your pattern paper. Arrange the items onto the back/white side of one of your papers. Trim ribbon strips with banner edges on one end, and fold the other into a loop to adhere at the top of the frame. Attach all elements with adhesive, including the lace ribbon on the top and bottom edge of the page. Once your paper elements are in place, use your sewing machine to stitch along the edges for decorative purposes and to secure the lace ribbon securely on your page.
To finish, simply adhere your photo and frame to the center of your embellishment cluster, attach a button to the “loop” at the top of the frame and add your alpha stickers and journaling.
This page is a tribute to my 30th birthday, which I just celebrated on March 14th. It feels like only yesterday I went out with friends for my 25th…time sure flies. I mentioned above that we would give away 5 of these great page kits and here’s how to enter: Just leave a comment below with some advice on how to make my 30’s even better than my 20’s!!
