Welcome! I wanted let you know where the next three Spellbinders Summer Sneak Peek and Giveaway blogs are, as well as to share a few details of the scrapbook page that I had created using the new Spellbinders Chevron Border (SKU S4-455) and Conversation Bubble 3 (SKU S2-137; both sets will be available this Fall at a store near you.)
Day 2: Tuesday, July 29
Day 3: Wednesday, July 30
Day 4: Thursday, July 31
My main chevron element used a dark gray cardstock for the frame piece, filled in with dark blue and dark green cardstock for the chevron pieces. I wanted some random chevron pieces on the page the add some interest to the page, and I wanted them to align correctly with the main strip of chevron pattern. I used an extra frame scrap for placement purposes, as shown above.
While I used the medium-sized conversation bubble die template for the actual quote (shown farther down), I needed the largest conversation bubble for my journaling block. I didn't really want the little tail-piece on it, so I removed it almost perfectly. ;-)
First I cut and embossed my printed journaling block with the largest conversation bubble. Next I trimmed the tail-piece off.
I inserted the journaling black back into the die, upside down and printed side up, and then re-cut and embossed, as shown above. It worked out pretty well!
There's my medium conversation bubble--unamended. :-)
That's it--a full explanation of my scrapbook page. I need to scrapbook more than I do. Otherwise my son will be graduating, and I'll be decorating with cards. . .
Thanks for visiting today,
