My grandmother made quilts and I loved having one of her quilts to keep me warm when I was a child. Since I grew up sewing, I thought making a quilt would be easy to do. My sister advised to me make a quick strip Amish Log Cabin quilt. It's a good thing I chose a simple quilt because it took me two years to complete it. Any other design and I would still be sewing it. I truly admire the beautiful fabric art that quilters make, but I obviously don't have the patience.
I usually put my scraps of paper in a box for the grandgirls to use when they are creating projects in my studio. Recently, I was refilling the box with leftover embossed cardstock and Designer Series Paper. The lightbulb went off in my head and I decided to make a paper quilt scrapbook layout.
I cut different widths and lengths of these scraps and used SNAIL Adhesive to attach them to a 12" x 12" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. No pattern. No matchy-matchy. Then I added a 5" x 7" piece of Basic Black Cardstock to the center using Dimensionals.
Voila! A simple, yet fun and creative, paper quilt scrapbook layout. This will be perfect to showcase another grandgirl's school photograph.
I hope this scrapbook layout inspires you to use your paper scraps for something creative!
