Times Up 04: With Stephanie

6 Comments Uncategorized

In January I finally got to meet Stephanie Howell at CHA. (The craft and hobby show in Anaheim.) Meeting online friends in person is such a treat. You feel like you already know them in a way, through blogs, Facebook, Instagram and scrapbooking layouts. She was so fun and cute in person as I’d expected.
I love this banner she put together of her trip to CHA and attached it to a base page to make a layout! I make banners and don’t know what to do with them later when I take them down from display so I love this idea.  Thanks Stephanie!


Times Up: Stephanie Howell
Time to complete- 30
Tip- For a quick and easy layout idea, use tags to make a “clothesline” across your page. I used the “Tag Cuts” patterned paper from the Crate Paper Fourteen collection for my tags. I just cut out the ones I wanted to use, punched holes in them and strung them on some bright Dear Lizzy ribbon.
I then hung the tags across the page and secured the ends of the ribbon with washi tape. The two large tags were used for the photo and the journaling, and the smaller tags became embellishment clusters.
Super easy, super fast, and looks like way more work and time than it actually is!

    This is a great page and I can see how it would be fun to make in your new 10 minutes at a time schedule – one tag at a time!
