We all know that aside from the photos, journaling is the heart of scrapbooking. There are many ways to add journaling to your scrapbook page. I often write mine on the page background itself or on one of the cardstock layers. But why not add journaling in such a way that it becomes an embellishment….perhaps a broken tag?!!
I created a broken tag by mitering the edges of a long strip of designer paper on the outer corners with our Tag Corner Punch. Then I tore the strip of designer paper in half, reversed placement of the 2 pieces, and punched a hole along on their straight edges. From there, I tied embroidery thread through the holes and adhered the entire piece to my page.
Other page elements of note:
- Look closely and you’ll see that my photos have been stitched around the edges with my sewing machine.
- I created a decorative patterned strip by alternating a greeting stamp image & brads.
- Above the patterned strip, the color combo of my cardstock mimics the pattern of the cozy coupe car….orange on bottom & yellow on top.
