The Texture issue. It was waiting for me when I got home from CHA. Love it! I'm not huge on putting lots of stuff on my layouts, but I do love me some texture. Let's check out a page, shall we?
Oh lookie here. That is my page. And I love that page. That Stampin' Up Waffle paper is really interesting. It has a shiny side, and a dullish side. I used the dullish side (great midtone grey.) I folded it into a pleated ribbon (thanks Cindy for the idea!), and held it together with clear tape in the back. Then I machine sewed it on. Super fast for a nice subtle texture.
The good part: the kind folks at Creating Keepsakes are letting me give away one issue. So please leave me a comment, and I'll pick a winner this Monday, February 7. Meanwhile, you can go here to check out more pages. And here, if you must have your own issue now!
