Let’s Visit Chevron Background Paper

Hey everyone! Katrina Hunt here for my very first post on the 3 Birds Design blog and I am so excited to be here. I hope you are enjoying seeing the new collection “Graceful Season”. I know I have had fun creating projects to share with you.

If you read my design team bio, you know that my dogs are a big subject for my scrapbooking projects. So you have been warned that you will see a lot of them! I like to document some of the things we do with them and this layout does just that.

TUTORIAL | CHEVRON BACKGROUND PAPER

I loved the chevron paper that is in the collection, but I wanted to add a little more color. I quickly measured and traced one of the larger chevrons and created a pattern to use from some scrap cardstock. I cut out the pattern and then traced it on the back side of the orange patterned paper and hand-cut the chevron shape.

After I cut out the orange one, I figured out the placement of it on the background paper. Then, I decided that I needed to add another chevron for more “pop” and decided to use the black floral paper for another chevron. I used the same pattern and traced it onto the black floral paper and cut it out. Once I figured out the placement for both chevrons, I used foam adhesive to pop the layers up slightly.
