My Favourite Four - R4

Hello Crafters!!

This is Nikita here and I am here today my with project for this month's Favourite Four Challenge!!! For this project I picked R4 and that choice presented me with the following elements for my project.

  • Photo
  • Stamping & Colouring (Critters/Human Figures/Objects)
  • Pattern Paper
  • Flowers/Embellishments/Quilling/Felt/Foam
When I saw the list, I knew I had to do something other than a card - a Scrapbook page. What inspired me, was the "Photo" part of the options available. I have made scrapbook pages in the past, but they were very basic because I didn't have pictures, or the content. All I had done was embellish a 12x12 page. So technically, this was my first try.

Another reason why I wanted to do a Scrapbook page was because I am in the process of making a scrapbook for myself. So I thought I'd kill two birds with a stone, or something to that effect.

Without rambling any further, I'll let you have a look at what I've made. I have one thing to say though. I may have made a grammatical mistake in the title of the page, but I am not sure if it in fact is a mistake. You see, I wanted the title of the page to read "You & I" but the thickers that I was using had only lower case letters. So I decided that even though it may be incorrect, it was better to go with "you & me" instead of "you & i" :P

Here are the Four Elements from R4...




(Oh! I have used sooo many of them!!!)
Here, I have used twine and chip board flowers... They flowers are visible clearly in other photos.. :)

Here, I have used thickers and stickers {brackets.} I also managed to do some stitching along the edges of the 12x12 sheet. 

Here, I have paper pieced Hearts from PP, used a chipboard button, a banner from PP and made alphabet banners from card stock.
And here it is. The whole layout!! I wanted to do a video for this, but as it was my first time making a Scrapbook layout, I didn't know how long it would take. Also, in retrospect it was a good thing I didn't. Because I changed my mind so many times, that it would be annoying to watch that video.

I had fun making this and I hope you guys liked it...
