Patchwork pages are very popular at the moment in paper crafts so I had to have a go at a page myself and they are great for using up your scraps and odd strips of paper. I tried a herringbone pattern for my page, as they are easy shapes to fit together with out worrying about them all fitting together perfectly.
I started off by making a template - cut a 1.5" strip of paper, then fold the corner down until it meets the otherside of the paper, making a triangle and forming the point, cut the triangle off. Then measure down 1.5" from both points and draw a line between them, and cut the paper. This should give you a nice parallelogram (sounds like school). Then you can cut some 1.5" strips out of your nice papers and use the shape as a template. Not always being a perfect measurer myself, I found that you can overlap the shapes a bit as the main thing for this page is that the points look straight, and also if you ruffle the edges of your paper shapes it can hide a multitude of measuring sins. I do this by taking the edge of scissors and scraping them along the edge of the paper or using an emery board or light sand paper, then I crumple and fold them a bit too. To make my page look a little more patchworky I machine stitched around each of the shapes, and then arranged and stuck them down on the page. I added a place for journalling behind the photo on one side, and then a white picket fence I had lurking in my stash on the opposite side. I mounted the photo on some red check paper, and some green K and Co paper which I edged with scallop scissors, then a little bit of bakers twine too. The rosette flowers are American crafts as are the thickers, the papers are a mixture of cosmo cricket, october afternoon and my little shoebox as I found these small shapes great for using up scraps of paper. Here are some more shots of the page.
