American Crafts National Scrapbook Day blog hop!!


Welcome to the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day 2014 Blog Hop! I hope you'll be inspired to craft as you make your way through the 16 blogs of the design team members and participate in each of the challenges!

 MY CHALLENGE: Use triangles on your project - easy peasy! 
How I made this layout: I cut the pattern paper to 8 1/2 x 11, then I punched out 28 triangles from 7 different pattern papers.  With gesso I painted where I wanted my picture to go--an added layer of detail if you will.  I added dimensional dots on the back of my picture, punched out a tab.  I measured my page at 4 1/4" and started adhering my triangles letting the tip touch the edge of the page.  I kept adding triangles to the the left and right of my original triangle--this creates a look of additional triangles between the patterned punched triangles.  I then sewed the triangles down with a straight stitch.  After my gesso dried and triangles adhered I added my picture, title and embellishments.  

Supply list: patterned paper, thickers, bits, gesso mini staples, puffy stickers, sequins, sewing machine.  (Everything EXCEPT the sequins come from the Plus One line, the sequins come from the DIY shop line).

GIVEAWAY!!

Leave a comment on this post by Saturday May 10th 2014 and I'll randomly select a winner to receive fun goodies from the brand new #summer line.

Here is the full hop list in case you get a little lost, or want to open up every blog in a new window right now. Make sure you go through the entire hop, leave a comment on each blog, then visit the American Crafts blog to win an extra super ginormous prize!


Next on the hop is Janna Werner!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
