Hello SMS fans, it’s Sarah on the blog today with a tricky topic: title pages! There are no rules! They can be what ever you want! I like to use up extra supplies when making my title pages and last pages in my Pocket Life albums. So, today I am sharing my title page from my 2016 volume 2! Here it is:
I used my leftovers from Maggie Holmes Bloom and Pink Paislee C’est La Vie. And, of course, a bunch of pretties from the SMS shop!
I sewed along the edges of this 4×6 card from the 6×6 paper pad from C”eat La Vie. I made a triangle shaped pocket with some vellum from the Bloom collection and then I filled it with ephemera. I embellished with Lilac Twinkle sequins and a couple of Cork Chevrons.
Here, you can see that I layered ephemera on top of a Paper Lace Doily and added tiny word stickers, a Felt-Fetti Heart, Cork Chevrons and a watercolor word from Heidi Swapp. I also hit it with a few splatters of Heidi Swapp Colorshine in Gold and Blush.
I made a “Frankencard” with one of the Bloom cut-a-parts by placing it on a 3×4 card and backing with glitter card stock. I used a Medium Shipping Tag to layer a couple of other tags and added a tiny word sticker and more Lilac Twinkle sequins.
I made another card with a triangle shaped pocket and filled it with a few tags and ephemera. I added a die cut flower from Bloom and tucked in a couple of Cork Chevrons. I used the Thickers from Bloom to add “vol. 2”. I sewed a die cut deer and an acetate piece on a 3×4 card an embellished with more of the same sequins.
I grabbed another Paper Lace Doily and loaded on the tags and ephemera. I embellished with a Felt-Fetti Heart and Cork Chevrons. I added a tiny word sticker, Heidi Swapp Colorshine and sequins.
I cut a Large Glassine Bag down to 4×6 and sewed in onto to this 4×6 card. I layered on some ephemera and embellished with a strand of Felt-Fetti Hearts.
Because I am completely addicted to sequins, I made this 12×12 shaker pocket to go over my title page. I sewed down the acetate “HELLO” from the C’est La Vie collection. I filled it full of Sunny Smiles sequin mix and sewed it shut at the top!
Here is what my title page looks like together with the shaker overlay! I hope you enjoyed my project for today and that I have inspired you to go out and get crafty! Check back next Monday for more from me!
