The 3 of Us
Woohoo ~ I am finally scrapping again!!!!! This is the second page I have completed since our fire, 3 1/2 months ago, and I think I'm back in the groove!
I read directions on another blog about how to use outline stamps and then color them in to get this awesome border all around the photo. I do have to admit it was a lot of work, though, but I love the finished effect. I can't remember whose blog the directions were on, so if anyone reading this recognizes the technique, could you please LMK so I can give the mystery blogger credit? Thanks!
Notice the lacy paper border crossing the bottom of the photo? I used the 3 snowflakes key on the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge, along with the "Border" button on the Cricut. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
Stamp set I used for this is called "Doodle This", and the colors I selected (with lots of help from Debbie Moczek, since I am totally color challenged) were Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie and Brocade Blue. Paper was donated by Janice Muri of Sarasota.....thanks, Janice!
