When I did my journaling I went with #’ing the photos so I can say who was in each photo. I cut those cute little #’s with my Silhouette. I used a font called Vaguely Repulsive, I have no clue where I got that font from, but they are super tiny and cut like butter.
The gathered ribbon was inspired by a Paper Trey Ink Monday video I just watched the other day. I’ve done this technique before in a single row, but never double. I love the look. The satin row needs to be sewn, but I have to wait until 12/25 to do that. My older sewing machine has been giving me major trouble lately and I really needed a new one. I was reading someone’s blog the other day (sorry I can’t remember who it was but I think Kristina Werner may also have this machine) and they picked up the Brother CS6000i machine. Found a great deal on Amazon so I asked Scott to get it for me for Christmas.
Supplies (note: Silhouette SD is no longer available so I linked below to the new Silhouette Cameo, oh how I want that Cameo….)
