Making Arrows by Stacey Michaud

Are you looking to add embellishments to your page?  I have some tips for you today that might make the process easier to manage.  Arrows are a hot trend right now in the scrapbooking world.  I will show you how to create your very own version of arrows, using patterned paper as inspiration.

I am in love with the particular sheet of paper called Arrows from the He Said, She Said line.

I decided to cut out my favorite colors and layer up the arrows to create a one-of-a-kind border.  Here is my page.

I layered each arrow, placing foam dots under some of them.  It give dimension and depth.  I topped some of the arrows with enamel dots to give it interest and movement..  Hand cutting elements allows you to make embellishments that fit your page and your scale.  

I added other fun, hand cut designs to the page like the honeycomb.  Using small pieces of journaling cards and the patterned papers allows for layering.   For example, I grabbed the green and white journaling card, placed the jagged edge die-cut circle in the middle and topped it with a piece of chipboard the reads "You are So Beautiful".  I tied off a button to give it the final touch.  Scissors and your imagination go a long way!

Supplies:  He Said, She Said (Paper:  Arrows, Postcard, Dots, Borders, Buttons, Die-cuts, Stickers, Enamel Dots, Brads)
