My First Chevron LO

I created this one page LO for Sketch #233 at Creative Scrappers. Chevrons are something new for me. I keep ideas and sketches from various craft magazines in a three ring binder. I recently added an example of a page with a chevron pattern made from a 8x8 paper pad. So when I came across this sketch at Creative Scrappers, I immediately pulled out my binder and used the directions provided in the example from "Creating Keepsakes" Sept/Oct 2012 issue. I will admit I struggled getting the pieces to line up with the vision I had in my mind. I even asked my husband to help me. My finished product is nothing like my original vision. But it's even better :)
the sketch:
my version:
DCWV Cardstock
DCWV The Christmas Stack
CM photo mat
"Handmade Stickers" found at Walmart

Til next time,


  1. Love the chevron pattern and the papers you used.

  2. This is super cute. You did a greart job creating chevrons with your paper stripes.

    I did a varition of this sketch too. You'll have to check it out on Tuesday at Use it Tuesday.

  3. well it might be your first but i hope you do more, it is really lovely! thanks for joining us at CS!

  4. LOVE the chevron pattern you created! What a great way to add just a touch of SEVERAL different patterned papers to a layout! I see so many chevron patterns and think that it is just "too much" going on, but YOURS is PERFECT . . . I think it is because you only did it for part of the background and not across the whole page.

    I might have to try this layout myself!
