Spring Always Comes Scrapbook Page

Spring Always Comes Scrapbook Page by Juliana Michaels using Pebbles Garden Party Collection
Happy Spring everyone! Even though spring has officially arrived, it's still cold here and it's hard to feel like spring has arrived. To help me get in the mood, I created this spring filled scrapbook page to share with you. It showcases a couple of photos from my yard last spring. Just looking at it, gets me excited about warmer weather and my garden in full bloom.

INSPIRATION | CREATIVE SCRAPPERS SKETCH 263


It has been a long time since I've had the time to play along with one of the sketches from Creative Scrappers. I have always been inspired by Kristine Davidson's sketches and her amazing Design Team. I recently created a scrapbook page using Creative Scrappers Sketch 263 as my inspiration.

Instead of using a 6x12 photo, as indicated in the sketch, I filled the space with two 3.5 x 5" photos and my title, which is a die cut from the Pebbles Garden Party Cardstock Die Cut pack.

To fill the right hand side of the page, I cut images from the Pebbles Garden Party Poppy paper. I then inked the edges and stitched around them with my sewing machine, before adhering them to the background paper. I love the quilted, hand made feel they add to the page. Next, I selected various coordinating stickers and embellishments to decorate the squares.

I really love how some of the die cuts and stickers are the same size as the images on the paper. I simply adhered them directly on top of the image using a piece of double sided foam tape for bit of added dimension and texture.
