Hello Scrappers! This is the page I made with the main kit only for July JBS Mercantile - since it's past the 25th, I get to share this one sneaky layout with you. And I must say, I do like this one a lot, a very lot :) You guessed it - I used my Silhouette to high heavens here. I took a rose cut and made it three sizes then rotated them to allow them to frame the page. That left me with a wide space in the middle and I decided to embrace the central design and go with a strip of the label paper right down the center.
The main kit challenge this time is to use any kind of fasteners with your kit - functional as well as just to add for the sake of design. I used staples all the way down my label strip just to add a little something fun there. I also spaced sets of two orange brads down the page. I originally had burnished silver brads and decided the tone on tone look was subtle and would work a little better with this page.
I placed white folded banners under each photo to ground them on the page. The banners hold the photos and connect them to the central label strip. I typed journaling strips, cut them into small banners, and layered them over the larger banners. Here you can see part of the exclusive July stamps! I stamped it directly onto the ribbon.
Thanks for coming by. Reveal is Sat. night at midnight central time as the day rolls into the 1st of July!
