Warm Winter Wishes withPage Maps Sister Scrapbook Sketch Contest We R Memory Keepers "Merry January" Collection

Page Maps is hosting a sketch contest with Sisters Scrapbook and they are offering a very nice prize package. The deadline is November 21st, make sure to run over to Page Maps to get all of the fine details on the contest. I tell you lately I can't get enough of the We R Memory Keepers Collections and the new Easy Sew Tool. It is super easy to use, just trying to get my pressure right but I know that it will depend on the papers I decide to use. On this layout I had to go through both pattern paper and card stock so I had to push just a bit harder but it is super easy to use and to line up. Check it out on the border underneath my snowman. It sure made the border become connected to the Curry Dot paper
Take a look at this fabulous stamp from We R Memory Keepers, it to is from the "Merry January" collection. I stamped directly on my Bo Bunny Curry Dot paper and then I paper pieced it on top of the stamped image by just repeat stamping on scrap papers from the collection, cutting and gluing it to the top of the stamped image.

Look at my ruffle border that I placed on my page to go along with the Page Map sketch. I cut 3/4" strips of paper and then with my scissors made narrow cuts into the strips going almost to the edge. I then took tweezers and rolled up every other one to make the rolls. It is so, so easy and gave a great look to the page. I then just adhered it to the photos in the lengths that I needed.

Another look at the rolled border along with a tag from one one of the pieces of paper.
