Project - I Am A...



2susiek - thanks for noticing that. It's been almost 4 years and no one has said anything to me! We have since moved so I can't re-photograph it on that beautiful dark wood surface, but know that it's fixed for my posterity :)

This is beautiful but she really needs to correct the spelling of "NIECE"

This is fantastic. The journaling is awesome

been thinking about a page describing myself with words.

Cool LO!

Super fantastic lo !!! love all the colors, words, and journaling.

Journaling says: It's amazing everything one person can be. The influence that you can have on people's lives. I am a wife to Chris. I am a sister Eric and Allison. I am a daughter to Tom and Carolyn. I am a daughter-in-law to Tom & Margi. I am a soon-t0-be mother, though I consider myself a mother to our pets. I am a niece to Steve & Katy, Dave & Cissy, John & Natalie, and David & Anissa. I am a friend to many and hope to continue to make and keep many friends. I am an aunt to Drew, Avery, and Luke. Not included in the title, I am a cousin to John, Maren, Sara Jayne, James, Elizabeth, Cat, Daniel, Benji, and Leah. Hopefully more to come! I am an in-law to Bethany & Peter, Jay, Andy & Cami, and Nick. These are just a few of my connections to people in this world. Oh, I'm also a granddaughter to Ted & Doris and John & Cathie. I hope that I can become the best version of me possible so that I can be the person all of these individuals need me to be. Some day in the future, like waaay in the future, I want to add the title of grandma and even great-grandma. But, let's not even start thinking about that yet :) Every day I will do all that I can to build these eternal relationships and make them stronger.

Tips: I started by punching 1.25" circles from my favorite patterned papers and transparencies then I adhered them around a circle of white cardstock. I stitched around and around and around the layout giving it a fun texture. Funny thing, I was originally going to scrapbook on the other side of the layout (hence the solid colored circles - they're patterned on the other side), but when I flipped it over I liked the texture of the sewing better, I loved the brightness of the solid circles, and I liked being able to see the circles in their entirety. So I scrapped on this side of the page instead! I put a picture in the middle, added words that describe who/what I am around the edge, and journaled between the stitched lines. I finished by applying a rub on wing.

Supplies: Patterned paper, patterned transparencies, wing rub on: Hambly Screen Prints; Cardstock, buttons, pen: American Crafts; Letter stickers: American Crafts (Thickers), Making Memories (mini paper)
