This month's inspiration is very trendy! I love it!
I chose to focus on two things: Chevrons and the Grey/Yellow combo. Both very hot trends right now in the crafting world!
 I did alot of searching around for chevron tutorials and I ended up making you one. Check the bottom of the post for it!
 The title of my page "Always Wear Your Invisible Crown" was inspired by a quote I saw on Pinterest. in fact, I have started an entire board devoted to scrapbooking titles! I always struggle coming up with something clever, so now I have a pretty good resource! The title was typed on the computer and printed on cardstock.
 I stamped the little crown using the new Silver Pen from the Seasonal Catalog onto a Window Sheet. Added a little bling, and there you have it!
 This wonderful stamp is part of a set we got at Convention. It's an exclusive to convention goers.
So the chevrons were pretty easy to make! I love the look of the folded over edged.
 The machine stitching took some time, but was definitely worth the look I ended up with.
 A little flag helps provide a journaling spot!

To Make the Chevron from DSP:
 1. cut your strip of paper 2" X 12". Draw a line horizontaly 1" all the way across. Using your ruler, carefully draw a line from the top at 1" to the mid line. Next, very carefully draw a line from the bottom to the midline at 2". Repeat this pattern all the way down. Useing your Paper Snips, or a very fine point scissors. Snip each verticle line taking extra care not to snip past the mid line or not snipping entirely to the midline. both will cause your chevorn to not be crisp.
 2. Using your Bone Folder, fold each corner to the oposite side toward the mid line.
 3. Add a bit of adhesive under each flap. Really make sure these folds are crisp, so use that bone folder!
 4. This is what it will look like once they are all folded down. This is the back side.
Once you flip it over, you will have a seamless chevron shape. I adhered mine to my page and then sewed along the edges using my sewing machine.
