What a beautiful day today. The sun is shining and I'm hiding in my basement scrapbooking summer pictures! It's perfect!
I love to cook and spend a great chunk of my day in the kitchen. This week's product shuffle came to me in the kitchen. As I was preparing my ingredients for my chili, I cut the top of my onion bag and set it to the side while I started chopping them.
Later, when everything was simmering, I started cleaning up and found the mesh bag top of my onions that lay in a perfect circle on my counter. That was the starting point of my layout. How perfect was this Page Maps sketch to incorporate my mesh circle?
Carta Bella and the Hello Again 6X6 paper pad.
To make the circle, I just placed a big glue dot in the center of where I wanted to place my mesh. I then cut the metal tie from the onion bag and placed the center of the opening on the glue dot. The rest of the circle simply stretched away and I added the picture and the embelishments on top.
Along with the Carta Bella, I also used Studio Calico paper, a Jillibean Soup vellum butterfly, Prima flowers, Basic Grey Buttons and stickers, CTMH cardstock and stickers and a Teresa Collins brad.
Here is the finished layout. I love how the mesh gives it just a suttle little something to tie everything together. Have you ever found scrappy inspiration in your kitchen? Let us know and see you soon!
