Hi everyone, Mou Saha here.
For my first tutorial for the Hambly Blog, I wanted to do something simple and to me, grids are simple and clean. When I tried choosing my papers, I couldn’t pick just one. They were all so pretty that I decided to use them all in my grid like pieces of puzzle where the patterns match and the colors transition. I found that to match the pieces the way I wanted, I needed to cut part of each the paper, the exact same way, into squares with each side measuring 1.75”. I used a paper trimmer for this, but you can also use craft knife and ruler or even punches or dies if you have that size.
Here are the supplies you'll need:
- 4 different 12 x 12 sheets of Hambly Holiday Deer Papers
- Hambly Elgant Labels Kraft Cardstock Stickers
- Pen and color pencil
- Sewing machine
Leaving about ¾ of an inch from top and left, I marked my starting point on an 8.5”x11” kraft cardstock. If you prefer the 12x12 format, you will need more squares of each color. I arranged the 16 squares, 4 of each color to the background as shown.
Next, I added two 2”x2” photos below the grid toward the left and added a kraft label sticker to the right as a base for my title. I journaled below the title, stitched a border all around it, and finally, added rows of mini triangles below the photos and to the top left corner of the composite with blue color pencil to finish.
Happy Holidays everyone!
