Note to Self Spread | Tina StepanovaJan 20, 2020
Hello FJ friends!
It's Tina here, and today I want to share with you another project I created using the Madison kit. This year I decided to try participating in the One Little Word project and, even so many crafters use 6x8 binders for this, I chose the beautiful blush pink Note to Self Binder to try a new format of scrapbooking.
I started by figuring out where approximately I want the titles and embellishments be on the spread. After that I scanned a grid insert sheet from both sides and using Photoshop placed my journaling exactly where I wanted it to be. First I printed everything on an office paper sheet. And then I temporarily adhered a grid insert sheet above the one I just printed and send it to print only the text. I also did the same with the other page of the spread.
After I had all the journaling printed I added a wide strip of green gingham pattern paper at the top and attached all the titles I created using three different Felicity Jane alphabet stickers.
Before adhering the gorgeous rusty orange envelope to the page I carefully cut a line at the back of it and did the same with the grid insert sheet. Only after aligning the both cut lines I glued the envelope to the page. Then I printed another journaling on a piece of white cardstock and trimmed it to fit into the envelope and through the cut line. To prevent this small letter from getting out of the envelope I attached a strip of cardstock slightly wider then the letter itself.
To fill an empty space above the quote about love I decided to add a stamp "my story to tell" from the Madison kit. First I stamped it on a piece of white cardstock, cut it out and adhered to the page using foam adhesive squares.
On the right-hand side of the spread I placed two lists of the things I want to invite and let go from my life. And I decided to mix the numbers from two different alphabet stickers to make it look more interesting. I also added a few ephemera pieces at the right top corner of the page to balance the embellishments of the spread.
That's all! Thank you so much for stopping by! Until next time!
