Do you ever have a story you want to tell from the past, so you take a current photo to represent it? That’s how this page started! Once I printed the photo, I saw the Swiss Cross shape on the controller, and realized I could repeat that shape across the page. You can punch squares out of a variety of Alex patterns, and trim them into strips with scissors to create the swiss crosses. Two triangular corners from the McIntosh Stars paper frame the page. I stitched through the shapes on the diagonal to add line and texture. Then, added computer journaling to a tag in a pocket behind the photo.

Love the Addison Collection so much! Sometimes the fresh designs of your supplies can inspire the whole concept for a page, as was the case here! The Addison Playlist Paper is perfect for any music lover. Have fun punching squares from this adorable line, and pile on some stickers, clips, washi stickers, and Bella Bows. Add a chipboard title and call it perf!

This page came together quickly, and the color scheme was taken directly from the photo. The heart shape in the latte art was repeated in the different size hearts punched and added to the hand stitched floss and yarn stripes. Kind of like those wall weavings all over Pinterest right now!
