Hello Ella fans, Grace here to share with you how I repurposed one of my scrapbook supplies.
I LOVE die cut shapes. There’s just something about perfectly cut out shapes that I can create with a crank or a push of a button. But did you know that you can use those fancy shapes as masks as well? I’m here to share with you how I brought some new life to these die cut shapes…
First off, I picked out the shape that I wanted and used scraps of paper to cut out the frame die cut. Because I’m just using the shapes as masks, I didn’t mind using scraps and non complimenting colors/designs for the shapes.
Then, I used some repositionable adhesive to add my frames in the spots I don’t want mist to go on my page. Repositionable adhesive is vital to this project so that you can take out the adhesive later on and it won’t leave adhesive residue on your project.
Next, I placed my white cardstock inside a box and picked the mists that I wanted on this page. I used two colors so that there’s some variety on the mist colors. I set it aside to dry completely before continuing.
Once it’s all dried, I pulled the frame off and it revealed perfectly white shapes in between all the misted areas. I love it!
To make the shapes stand out more, I added pen stitching around the inside of the shapes.
Then I started putting the page together. I first placed some paper strips around the cardstock to frame and ground my page, and then I matted my photos and added photo corners for my focal photo.
Then I added the title and handwritten journaling. I finished off the page with embellishments like rubons, chipboard, stickers and buttons.
And here’s the final page again…
Thanks for letting me share with you one of my favorite ways to repurpose my supplies. Have a fantastic day!
