SF Technique & Theme August Challenge

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  It’s Jessica, here to share my Monthly Challenge with you!
I received this gorgeous line of paper from Kaiser Craft called “Shaken Not Stirred.”  When I first saw it, I immediately thought of some a card playing or poker type of layout.  Then realized that pictures from last year’s Scrapping Frenzy’s Red Carpet Convention were absolutely perfect to use!
Here is my layout:
I took one sheet of the printed paper “Pierce” and slightly trimmed it to use as a background sheet on top of a sheet of basic white cardstock – of course with all edges inked with Cats Eye Charcoal.  I then used a sheet of black cardstock and used it for putting my pictures on, after matting them with the red glitter cardstock.
Next, I took the printed sheet “George”, which is striped on one side and has lots of other design strips on the other side.  I cut out the top border piece from this paper.  I also used a small circle of it for my center embellishment.
I added a few scallop stitches, which is our technique challenge for this month, and a few black X stitches on the corners of the paper.  I also stitched down the button in the center of the page.  Last thing I added was my journal box and my red glitter title, which I cut using the Cricut and the All Mixed Up cartridge.
