It would seem that we cannot get enough of Shellye McDaniel and we hope you feel the same way! Shellye rode with us on our Head of the Class and Hello Fall teams and now we have invited her back to take a spin with our Saturdays collection. But let's have Shellye tell you all about it...
"Enjoy" Mini Album
by Shellye McDaniel
Using the 6x6 Decorative Cardstock Pack, trim each sheet down to size (the top portion only). I like the staggered look, so I trimmed the first three pages and left the last (larger) two pages as-is.
Next, match the tops of the pages together and decide on the placement for your holes; punch holes. For each page I used a large circle template and traced onto patterned paper; trim to size (as shown on pages 2-4). For the last three pages you will need to extend your circle by creating straight edges; trim as to the desired length (as shown on pages 5-9).
Ink/distress around the perimeter of your circle and then machine stitch to create a border...DO NOT machine stitch directly onto the 6x6 Decorative Cardstock sheet, instead glue into place. Embellish each page with the beautiful accents from the Saturdays Collection and your own sweet photos :) Note: I used a 2" square punch for cropping all (but one) of my pictures down to size.
With Mother's Day coming up, this would make the perfect gift!
