I am a little late getting this post up (Sorry about that).
I spent the week in Toronto doing a training and when I returned sleep was calling my name.
So.... with that being said I really enjoyed this weeks challenge at Lasting memories.
It was really a challenge for me to include folding on my LO - Plus another first for me with this fold.
It is called pleating... I also tried to do a quick tutorial for you. Please excuse the photos - it is hard to take photos and craft at the same time... I welcome any suggestions.
Here is my Layout...
The pictures are from a cheer-leading competition at Canada's Wonderland.
to make the pleats I used my Scor-pal scored every 1/2 in.
Pinch the scores together
They will look like this...
I used my ATG gun on a scrap piece of paper
It helps to hold it in place
The final product ... Well the pleating anyway
Here is a close up of the pleating on the Layout.
and of course the cheerleader with a Peachy Keen face made from Cricut
"Paper dolls every day" Cartridge.
and that is how it came together... The beautiful papers and some embellishments that I used were from Authentique Celebration line.
Come join us at Lasting Memories for the challenge a Surprise will be the prize from Karen.
