Check out what some of our Design Team created with this lovely paper!


A Sweater From Grandma by Amy Peterman

Amy says, "To create my layered background, I cut some of the strips apart and stitched them down with my sewing machine. I then pulled up the edges of every other strip to add extra dimension. I also used one of the strips (the green Simply Delightful strip) as a ribbon of sorts, by cutting it in pieces, pleating it and trimming Vs in the ends."



Odd Couple by Cindy Tobey

For my page I used a few strips below my photos to visually anchor them. Since I love dimension on my pages I like to cut the strips apart, add a decorative edge, and then curl the edge up a bit. For border strips with a printed decorative edge I go to my tool stash to see what tool I can use to most easily cut out that printed edge. For the postage stamp edge strips I simply used a circle punch to trim away the unwanted paper.



Wishful @ 3 by Staci Taylor

Staci said, "When I saw the 'Wishful' banner on the strips paper, it immediately brought back memories of my daughter at her last birthday.  She was SO excited about her birthday, and she was even more excited to blow out her candles and make a wish.  I hand-cut the banner from the strips paper, and I also hand-cut some of the scallops from the strips paper to top one of my photos."

Wishful by Vicki Chrisman

Vicki actually cut out the "Wishful" border flags and added them to string for a festive look! She also used border strips along the top and bottom of her lovely canvas.


Simply Delightful by Anne Jo Lexander

Anne Jo says, "Playing on the romantic look of this collection, I decided to mist my flower sheet with iridescent gold (which just leaves a hint of golden shimmer) all over the sheet, inking the edges with distress ink, and going for a romantic looking layout. I originally wanted a huge white space at the bottom part of the layout, but when I came across this tag from Road Show I knew I had to use it (I have to admit, I tend to shy away from prefabricated quotes, maybe because I'm not American/Brit, but this one, it was too perfect to use for this particular layout). So to balance the upper corner cluster, I matted it on the back of the strips paper, sew & cut around it and placed it at the opposite bottom corner. The strip itself was cut out with an edge scissor and inked and sewed on. Notice how it continues after the photo, just at a higher location."
