Scrapbook Boutique and ScrapFriends meet.

Which of these do you think is yummiest?
This sketch from ScrapFriends  . . .






or this from Scrapbook Boutique . . .


I, for one, loved them both, and here is the page I created using both of them as my inspiration . . . 


When you see a page like this from me, with the patterned paper as a border behind the cardstock, it means one of two things.  Either it is a paper I have had sitting around for a while and I'm glad to be finally using it, or I've cut the middle out before attaching the cardstock down (usually by sewing for extra  stability).

No prizes for guessing which one I've done this time . . .

 
The pink patterned paper is from  my Counterfeit Kit, and pretty much everything else is my "Plus One".  The "postcards" are from a recently purchased Kaisercraft paper.  As well as postcards on one side, it has a gorgeous butterfly pattern on the other.  I rarely buy more than one sheet of the same paper, but if they still have this one in stock next time I drop into my local Scrapbook shop, I will totally buying another sheet or two!


 Thanks for taking the time to drop by!

  4. Great page - I also used a sketch today and cut out the middle of my background page (to use a bit of the reverse around the edges) :). I need to look for that Kaisercraft paper, the postcards are really nice!

  7. Such a pretty page. Those flowers are gorgeous and the pop of white so eye-catching. But my favorite is the postcard too. I just bought a postcard outline stamp to use in much the same way.
