Finishing Touches on a Scrapbook Layout

From my last couple of posts, you would think all I'm doing these days is knitting. And you would be so wrong. Here's proof: this layout I made using the July scrapbook kit from Cocoa Daisy. I created most of this in one sitting, but something was missing. So I let the page sit on my desk for the day, came back the next morning and knew what I needed to do.





Even with all the cute tags, the layout did not feel complete until I added bits of hand stitching. I just need my frames, I guess. And little pops of kraft here and there. Now I'm finished. Do you ever walk away from a scrapbook page and finish it later?

  1. This is a darling page - she's growing up quick. I always like to take a break and then get that one last look after a layout is finished too - and add the last finishing touch (or occasionally take off the last thing that I shouldn't have added).

  2. Yes. I do it all the time. I can never finish a page in one sitting and I tend to work in bursts of about twenty minutes a day, so a page can take me several days to complete and each day when I come back to it I see where I want to go with it.

    This is a really cute page!

  3. I love the photo block and the strip journaling. I don't often walk away from a layout unless I'm feeling like I need to.

  5. The stitching is a great final touch! I rarely leave a layout, but sometimes will keep it on the table until the next morning to see if it needs a little something extra.

  6. Very cute pictures and cute tags and cute page! The thin red border really pops everything. Yes, I leave pages all the time before finishing them. And sometimes I wish I had when I do finish them and think later what I wish I had done :) Have a great week!

  7. Oh yes, I walk away frequently if necessary. Although I usually figure it's done and I'm happy :) I do like frames too.
