Hi! Connie Hall here to share how I created a Faux Quilted Scrapbook Page. I also wanted to incorporate something I don’t usually so Ii decided tog o for a stitched layout – it’s just a frame that I hand stitched but it adds a completely new feel. I had a 4×4 picture of my youngest daughter giving me a warm hug during her father’s College Graduation dinner. The special event is written on back of tag tucked behind the picture.
The page is loaded with a variety of layers. I will take you through the process I used to create this page. I hope it becomes a reference to follow to help you create your own quilted scrapbook page.
My page is inspired by this image I found on pinterest.
I Made an 8 pointed star. I am awe inspired by quilters and their ability to create such works of art. I like to recreate these images with patterned paper. Please join me as I learn to create this quilt inspired page.
Products used to create this page:
7gypsies Architextures – Vintage Bunting 12×12 paper
7gypsies Architextures 8×8 paper pad
7gypsies Scrap Pack
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Pearl
Canvas Corp Natural Canvas made into flowers
Canvas Corp 12×12 Burlap Sheet – Chocolate
Canvas Corp 12×12 Kraft Cardstock
Crochet Doily, Cheese cloth
Fabric adhesive, Pop dots, 12×12 paper Trimmer
Sewing Needle, White thread
Lost and found handle
Ruler, Pen, Scissors
Take the 8 x 8 scrapbook page from the pad and cut the patterned paper into 1/2 inch strips. I cut the length to 4 inches
Cut the kraft cardstock into 2 inch by 6 inch strips. You will need 8 to create the star shape.
I measure from the corner up 2inches and draw a line to other corner and at 4inches to the corner creating a parallelogram shape.
Next step was to glue the paper to the cardstock.
Trim the excess paper.
I mirrored the pattern. to create the star tips. I poked holes in the paper and then hand sewed the shape but did not sew to the burlap.
I used thread and ran a running stitch around the whole perimeter.
Here is what it looks like:
I tacked the doily on with the thread .
I placed the tips in the center creating the star shape. I added cheese cloth to make it look worn.
I used the pop dots to add the drawer handle
I used lace from the scrap pack and ran a running stitch to the top.
I gathered and used liquid adhesive to the back of the handle.
I added my embellishments using the bigger flowers, medium and then small. I had some tags I added for more layers.
I sprayed Tattered Angels mist over the entire project to add more texture and some glimmer.
I tucked the right corner down and added some vintage pins. Some fabric paper from the scrap pack and thickers for my title.
To finish, add picture to the scrapbook page and enjoy.
This page will be going in a shadow box. I am not worried about the dimension. If you create your page to be put in a scrapbook page protector you would need to use flatter embellishments.
I hope you find this tutorial helpful and that it’s given you some new ideas.
Thanks for joining me!!!
