Sure Cuts A Lot Scrapbook Page

I loved scrapping these photos of me and my very dear best friend Jackie Moon!  Not only did she crochet these accessories--she designed them!  (You can download her designs at Made With Love by Jackie Moon.)  I LOVE Jackie's style--natural, feminine, laid-back--so what better place for a photo shoot than the forest?

We modeled her gorgeous crochet designs and Leo shared his superb talent behind the lens. End result?  Gorgeous photos for Made With Love by Jackie Moon.  Do you crochet?  If not, you might learn just so you can make Jackie's designs!

SVG Collections Used

Memory Garden Designer Page SVG Kit

This SVG Collection is SO easy to use!  You just pick out your photos and grab a stack of coordinating paper and cut everything (yes, everything!) to the same width (11.3" wide).  We've done your dirty work - just get creative with your papers and embellishments!

Dimensions

Here are the exact shapes, sizes and colors I used. All paper was from the Mariposa Stack except one piece of sage green cardstock.  Use the Keep Proportions option to keep the shapes’ proportions while sizing everything to 11.3" wide.

Design Tips

Using pre-coordinated paper really makes for a gorgeous layout.  Getting a DCWV or K&Company stack on sale at JoAnn's or with a Michaels coupon is the most economical way for me to get lots of coordinating paper.  I just looooove the Mariposa Stack by DCWV and it's perfect for these pictures with its feminine, natural look.  It was so fun pairing it with our new Memory Garden pages and these photos!

The Mariposa Stack by DCWV

I inked the edges of every single shape with a brown ink pad (and discovered that I liked my pigment ink better than my chalk ink for this).  I used 3D Zots underneath some of the shapes, such as the Imagine Frame, the small journaling shape and lots of the flowers.  There's no right or wrong way to put all the flowers on, by the way.  If I were to make the flowered pages 10 times, I'd probably assemble and place the flowers differently each time.  I used lots of brads and sticky flat bling (by Stampendous) on every page which adds a pretty, fairy-like dewey quality to these all-natural pages.

Now to only learn crochet...  Jackie will you give me lessons??

    I just had to check out Jackie’s site…so cute! Her designs are amazing. I don’t know, it doesn’t seem fair, the two of you are so pretty and obviously very talented, then Mr. Leo takes such beautiful pictures. :o) I haven’t crochet in years, so I think I’ll start w/the freebie headband she offered to get me back into the swing of things. TFS.
