A ShabbyChic Page in 7 easy steps


I made this Shabby Chic layout in a frame for a dear friend. Let me show you how in 7 easy steps -

Step 1 - I drew the outline of a circle on a die-cut. I pricked holes and 
hand-stitched around the outline. I used an edge punch and then cut the border into individual floral pieces. I inked them and adhered them to the stitched circle. 

 Step 2 - I fussy cut a frame from another pp and adhered it to the photograph using pop dots. 

Step 3 - I layered the page with the background pp, die-cut and the fussy-cut frame in the foreground. I inked the edges before sticking them down. 

 Step 4 - I matted the photograph with corrugated paper and created a banner for the title alphas. 

 Step 5 - I left the birds on a branch chippie untreated because the kraft color pops off beautifully against the black. I used distress inks on the hinge chippie, fastened it with metal brads and added flowers.

Step 6 - I added a rub-on for part of the title.

Step 7 - I use another edge punch to create a border and finished off with embellishments like misted flowers and a punched butterfly.

Hope you found this Shabby Chic tutorial helpful. Happy scrapping!
