Video - Scrap Your Stash: Cool Like a Fox by Paige Evans



This page is super cute & super fun.

I am just saying this for the record after hearing you named your son Fox,I am stealing that name for my child some day. The whole page is perfect, I can't wait to have my own bundle of joy to make pages like this for

Love the paper weaving idea. I remember learning how to do that in grade school...

Love this technique and what a great layout!!

So cute!! I would never have thought to use the tear-away strips although I always think to myself what a pity to throw them away. :)

Great idea with the stripes - i love the punched edges and will definitely try that!

Description: You know how the barcode strips at the bottom of patterned papers have patterns on the opposite side? I LOVE those tearaway strips! I hate throwing them away so I like to think of new ways to use them from my stash. Enter today’s technique: paper weaving! The Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go line has bright and bold colors that I associate with my strong-willed toddler named Fox. He has a fox shirt that I took a picture of him in that just had to be scrapped. A paper-woven photo mat is a great spot for these fun photos. I like creating embellishment clusters using all types of products for interest, texture, and dimension, including die cuts, stickers, brads, punching, and spray mist. I tried to use products and images that I associate with Fox or things that he likes - a fox because his name is Fox, a bicycle because that's one of his favorite words, a lightbulb to show how he's bright, a leaf because he loves leaves, a star brad because he loves stars, so on and so forth. After creating this layout I feel like I've made a dent in my tearaway strips stash and saved them from the trash!

Journaling says: I'm so glad that foxes are “in” right now! I love when you wear this t-shirt - it's so true!

How to: The video shows how to create the layout from start to finish. But here it is written: trim the same color cardstock as the background to 8 x 10" then weave tearaway trips across it; trim the edges shorter. Create embellishment clusters around the photo to draw the eye around the page using brads, stickers, die cuts, a metal disc, wooden veneer shape, and more! Make a title on the bottom right corner. Punch a segment of zigzag border on each edge then drop brown spray mist on top of the punched areas.

Challenge: Create a layout with paper weaving using tearaway strips! Every month we will draw a winner from all the SCRAP YOUR STASH entries and reward them with a $10 gift certificate. Winner will be announced on the 2Peas blog!
