too cool....*elle's studio*

the august design team gallery went live over the weekend at elle's studio!  it's pretty awesome!  and i've been dying to share this adorable layout of my sweet son!!  there is nothing i love more than a banner of tags.  and that was the inspiration for this page....that and my cutie pie son!!

too cool...

i started this page with the idea of creating a sewn banner along side my photo.  i originally used the full 12x12 photo, but opted to trim off part of the photo in the end to help the vertical banner stand out a little more!!  i stamped a few sentiments onto vellum and sewed everything together using the regular settings on my sewing machine.  once i had a pretty garland, i hot glued the whole thing into place!!  so fun!!

here are a few detail shots...

have you tried sewing your own garland or banner???  you should!  it totally adds so much to a page!!

happy thursday!
