Cherish Scrapbook page 6x6

faux suede detail
I've been working on finishing some scrapbook pages: here is one inspired by a card sample in the latest Impression magazine. If you can make a card, you can definitely make a scrapbook page: its just cardmaking on a slightly larger scale! I taught the flower embellishment at a recent techniques class: it uses the faux suede technique. Its a lovely way to add texture and subtle colour variation to your project. I also used double embossing on the embossed piece, after stamping it with a flourish in Sahara Sand. This adds a further level of detail.
