BIRD WATCHING – April 2010 – South Padre Island, Texas
JOURNALING: We watched in awe as this blue heron fished and then proceeded to swallow his catch whole. South Padre Island Birding & Nature Center.
SUPPLIES USED: Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge, Roam patterned paper by K&Co, K&Co paper ribbon, Fiskars border punches, Cricut Expression for title
TECHNIQUE TIP: I have a huge collection of journaling tags and of course when I see more, I have to buy them. And then of course because I love to “save” my supplies, I use them only sparingly. Ugh… Well on this layout, I used one to do my actual journaling and then because I wanted to “save” another one, I traced the outside of shape onto a piece of cardstock and added it to the bottom of my photos to have a complete shape on the layout.
Don’t forget that if you love the shape of an embellishment but it doesn’t quite match the colors of your layout, you can always use it as a template and make your own. Much cheaper to do this as well.
