Lucia Isabella Scrapbook Page

Today’s post is a scrapbook page. Regular followers of my blog will know that I became an Auntie in February and I am currently making a scrapbook for my Mum & Dad, who became grandparents for the first time in their early eighties!

Page Recipe:
Stamp: Tonic Studios Birdcage Set
Colouring Mediums: Encore Ultimate Metallic Ink Pink, Promarker Pens
Paper & Card: Karen Foster, ADT, stardream paper
Tools: Tonic Simplicity Dotty Border Punch, Tonic Label Die, Tonic Birds on a Branch Die, Grand Calibur, Tonic Super Trimmer
Embellishments: double satin ribbon 10mm

To make this page, I trimmed a 13cm strip of pretty heart patterned paper, then cut a decorative border using my Dotty Border Punch, which I then attached to a 12”x12” sheet of Karen Foster cardstock.  I made the title using an online word art programme, printed it out and cut out with my Tonic label die. I created the mat by tracing around the outside of the same die and cutting it out.  The mats were cut from white card and stardream paper, and I echoed the dotty border on the base mat of my main photograph.

I’ve just received the gorgeous new bird and birdcage dies and stamps from Tonic Studios, and the little hearts included in the designs matched perfectly with my little heart patterned paper. So to accent my page, I die cut a little bird and inked through the die to accent the die cut. Then I used the little heart and flourish stamps from the Birdcage stamp set to decorate the corners and under the title. I coloured in the hearts with Promakers to match with my patterned paper. These stamps are just so useful, they are going to get A LOT of use!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
