Hello and welcome to the Accent Scrapbooking Team Up & Product Swap Hop! This month the Sparklers and I got to use a bunch of fun flairs from Accent Scrapbooking! You should have arrived here form Christy's blog. I'm sure you enjoyed her layout! For this hop selected a sketch from Laura Whitaker and got crafty! Here is the sketch we used:
I am still working on getting all of my pictures from last summer scrapped, so I grabbed my leftover summer papers and embellishments and, of course, a bunch of goodies from the SMS shop and got going! Here is my layout:
I had leftovers from Amy Tan and Dear Lizzy's summer collections that I wanted to get used up. I started with a 12x12 piece of Textured White Cardstock from American Crafts and cut it down to 8.5x11. I added strips of patterned paper at the top and bottom and sewed them on with gold thread using my sewing machine.
I printed a 4x4 of my daughters at the local splash pad. I layered a White Paper Lace Doily behind it along with a few pieces of ephemera. I tucked a Cork Confetti Butterfly and a Cloudy Days Feltie in also.
Following the sketch, I created an embellishment cluster near the bottom of the page using a wood veneer ampersand, a brad from Dear Lizzy and a few enamel dots from my stash. I also gave the layout a good splatter of Heidi Shine in Gold and Shimmerz Inklingz in Piggy Pink.
I filled a Small Glassine bag with some of the new Pocket Full of Posies Sequin Mix, sewed it shut and tucked it behind my picture. I added the gold mirrored title from My Mind's Eye. I also strung two tassels from Maggie Holmes Gather collection on some white thread and added a few of the Pocket Full of Posies loose sequins. And finally, I added the gorgeous "Happy Moment" flair from Accent Scrapbooking!
I hope you enjoyed my layout for todays hop! I had so much fun creating it for you! Now you are headed over to Hanna's blog!
