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.
Once, my base background was finished, it was all about the fun of layering and embellishing. There are so many embellishments; I had trouble just picking a few. One trick I like to use (and you will see this a lot) is to stack multiple embellishments.
I loved this picture that I took of their pet therapy I.D. tags, and I wanted to show it close to the title. I did a mixture of the 6×6 pad, chipboard embellishments and the chipboard letters to create my title.
