Had to wait for the sun to come out to get my photos taken today! We've been having some much-needed rain here in Wisconsin, both for the crops' sake and to break up the humidity that settled in here like a blanket a couple of days ago. We've had a gorgeous, cool summer this year, so I can't complain, but I won't be too sorry to see the end of this particular weather system.
I will, however, be sorry to see the end of 31 Pages in 31 Days! Once again I have thoroughly enjoyed this annual blog series here at Song of My Heart, and I have loved getting so much scrapbooking done. Give yourself a pat on the back if you managed to squeeze in some time to memory-keep this summer, too! Here's today's inspiration page for your enjoyment:
As soon as I saw this Chevron Fold I wanted to try it on a scrapbook page. I used the scraps left from this Blackberry Bliss spread from Day Six to cut my 1x2.5 inch strips, and found I needed 11 total strips to make it from top to bottom of a 12x12 page. It was easy and fast and made a super-cute scrapbook border with lots of natural dimension.
I left the page pretty simple since the patterns are busy, but added a little texture with Basic Pearls and some paper piercing to kind of play up the quilt look. Here's a supply list so you can see everything I used on this page. Thanks for stopping by today! See you tomorrow for Day 26!!
