I love these Polaroid punch outs from the Portrait line. I wanted them to be the focus of the page. The labels at the bottom also gave me some room for journaling.
I had a hard time getting this page to look how I pictured it in my head. I knew I wanted the strips of paper, but the colors and layers weren't as dynamic as I planned. So I started adding embellishments and it started coming together. I love this chipboard flower from the line, Emma's Shoppe. A few brads also made it on the page too. Can't make a page without buttons and brads.
Here's a close up of the title. It started as "being me", but I wanted it a little longer so I added the "happy" alphabet stickers. I also really liked how it brought in more color. This was the first time I had stitched through chipboard. Wasn't sure how well it would do, but I went slow and now I don't have to worry about the letters falling off. Plus, I just love the look of the stitching.
