Hey everyone! Paige Evans here with a new layout featuring a scalloped border background/frame!
Check out this process video to see how this layout came together from start-to-finish:
I started by using a lace scalloped border punch from EK Success to punch 24 strips. I used two pieces of Paper 24 from my Truly Grateful collection – it’s the one with the colorful triangles and I was able to get 12 borders from each paper.
I chose the B-side of Paper 21 with the subtle pastel cross stitches on a white background on which to adhere the border strips. But first I loosely placed them in a frame around the layout to make sure I had enough and that I liked this idea. I had a vision in my head but wanted to make sure it could come to life before committing to it and gluing everything down. It looked good so I moved forward!
I trimmed the border strips to fit the smaller and smaller frames as I was gluing them in place which you can see better in the process video above.
I found a cute photo of my daughter, printed it into a square, and placed it in the center to be the focal point of the layout. I tucked a bunch of journaling spots under the picture to help draw the eye right to it and create interesting layers.
For the title I used a combination of wood veneer and Thickers to say Yes Girl. I also added an “adore” epoxy sticker subtitle above the photo. I journaled with a blue pen on a smaller journaling spot and tucked it under the right side of the picture. To finish I added four puffy stickers around the photo of icons of things my daughter likes – birds, a bunny, and birdhouse.
I hope this page inspires you to create a fun scalloped border background/frame for your next layout using Truly Grateful!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
