NEW! Webster's Pages 'Best Friends' Collection is here!!


Webster's Pages just released their cute new mid-season release called Best Friends and I got my design team package last week and have my first layout done using the papers, trims, transparencies and their adorable new Storymarkers (below).  I scrapped a photo I took of Meagan, Chloe and her best friend Peyton, when we were at Wonderland (a Canadian theme park) a few weeks ago. Chloe and Peyton have been friends since they were about 3 years old, and even though they are in different high schools now they still have remained best friends.
I thought I would try using these cute book markers in a different way.  I saw a fun tutorial for cards on Youtube to create a 'waterfall' effect.  They used paper for the design but I thought I would try combining paper and the ribbon pull to create an interactive design on my page.  Here is a link to the tutorial I watched 'Waterfall Card Tutorial'.  I simply added my velvet strip to the design as the pull cutting it in half, and used the extra bit from the top as a pleated design above the waterfall pull.  When you pull on the charm each of the sections flip up to reveal the names of the girls in the photo. 
This photo above shows a side view of how the top piece flips up to reveal the next piece underneath as you pull the ribbon.
This photo shows each section as you pull, the top piece flips up and reveals the tab underneath.  I did a little stamping and heat embossing on the paper tabs and then simply wrote their names on them.
The floral embellishments I added where made from the 2 smallest petal designs from the Spellbinders Rose Creations die cuts.  I cut them from white cardstock and lightly tinted the centers with some pink ink (Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet)...the centers are punched from pink cardstock using the smallest retro flower punch from Paper Shapers (EK Success).
The Best Friends collection started shipping last week, so check your local scrap store to see if they've ordered them in, ...or an online option is that you can order this cute collection directly from the Webster's Pages Website!  Stay tuned, I've got another fun layout made with this gorgeous collection for you on the 29th, hope you'll have time to pop in again!   Thanks for stopping in today and for the kind comments!! xo
