Follow your own star.

I've been using the same 8 1/2" x 11" card stock for all of my Scrap Pile Layouts.  I have a bunch of this from Mom's stash and do not know the name of it.  It was just in a pile with some other card stock and the wrapper was no longer attached.  This has made all of these layouts look like they should all go together even though I'm using a bunch of different patterns, styles, and colors from different designers.


I started this set of layouts by cutting the rectangles down to 2 1/2" x 2" in sets of two and the center rectangle is cut a 8" x 3 1/2", I did ink all of the edges.  For the left side I layered a couple of left over strips that were on my desk.  The punched border wasn't long enough to go the whole 8 inches so I just used it as it was.


I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and hand cut a banner out, glued it to the toothpick, and added foam tape behind it so it looks like it is waving in the wind.


I stamped the stars and colored them in with a Bic Mark It, cut around the image, layered it onto black card stock and added the punched border.  I have foam tape behind it so that a picture can be tucked behind the image.

Thanks for stopping by.
