Hybrid Digital/Cardstock Paper Piecing

I had so much fun making this scrapbook page. It's always nice to have a photo that gives you so much inspiration, you can "see" the page in your mind. I quickly sketched it out on paper hoping I could create it as closely to what I envisioned. It came out pretty good!

I used the digital ki8t Aloha Spirit by Stelljane Designs to paper piece the flip flops.  I've been turning to this kit over and over again as I start to work on scrapping our Hawaii trip. It's a great kit for any tropical or beach themed projects.

The rest of the elements are paper pieced from cardstock. I cut all the elements on my Silhouette Cameo.  I even laid out the page in the Silhouette Design Edition software to make sure everything was sized correctly.

The clothesline is a bit of jute twine and the "clothespins" are just small strips of cardstock.

This was created as a sample for the 8/19/2012 Card Caravan at the Hybrid Chick. Check it out!

I've also got a full supply list posted on the Scrap n' Art blog.
