Today's story about our Sunday Family Dinner incorporates one of the Rainbow Kit pattern papers, the canvas word strips, and a pattern paper from the Begin Story Kit that holds a flip-up photo with journaling underneath.
Let's dive in to the video:
Here's a closer look via images:
I started this one by cropping the 12x12 pattern paper down to 7x8.25. I also ended up adding a strip along the left edge of the Begin pattern paper to carry the pattern over onto the second page.
As you'll see in the video I end up adjusting the title from "Family Dinner" to "Sunday Family Dinner" and because of that there's a bit more "distress" look around some of the multi-color chipboard alpha stickers (in the spots where I pulled them off and then added a different letter).
If you don't happen to have letter stickers you could also always use alpha stamps for a similar look.
In between the words on the square grid pattern I added plastic hearts from the Heart Scrapbook Kit and stapled the canvas phrase strips from the Rainbow Kit on top. The two on this page combine with one on top of the photo create a nice visual triangle across the spread.
For this project I started with story and wrote my journaling first. I loved the opportunity to write more about what Family Dinner looks like around here at this point in time.
I broke up the journaling into two boxes that were sized the same as my photo and then adhered the first page to the back of the photo and the second page onto the Begin Pattern Paper.
Journaling was printed on Epson Ultra Premium Matte Presentation Paper.
I used a corner rounder to round the corners of my journaling and photo (mimicking the rounded corners on the Begin Story Kit pattern paper).
What's a story you could tell using this pattern paper?
