For today I created an 8.5x11 layout using scraps from my stash, new goodies from SMS and a gorgeous dragonfly laser cut chipboard from Creative Embellishments! Here it is:
I started with a piece of 12x12 American Crafts textured white card stock. I cut it down to 8.5x11. I printed out a 3x4 picture of my youngest daughter at her sixth birthday and got started!
I stared by creating my background. I used a light purple Gelato and three different Shimmerz Creameez in Piggy Pink, Refresh Mint and Get Glowing. I used the packaging technique with the purple Gelato and made big splatters with the Creameez. I then added Sea U In The Morning' Dazzlers with a putty knife and a Heidi Swapp stencil.
After my background dried, I layered different colored papers behind my photo. I also added a white lace paper doily. I filled a small glassine bag full of the new Spring Fever sequin mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine. I tucked it behind my photo.
I added my title using Page Evans word Thickers and some old Dear Lizzy enamel Thickers. I stamped the date on with my Pebbles roller date stamper. Then I added a few enamel dots and Kaisercraft gems.
I used Tombow Mono Multi Adhesive to adhere the amazing Flourish Dragonflies from Creative Embellishments! I love the look of the raw chipboard, but they can also be painted, stained, inked, embossed and so much more! The possibilities are endless!
I finished my layout with a quick boarder on the top edge and a small embellishment cluster. I used my WRMK tab punch to make a glitter tab and added a small gold paper clip and a tassel from Maggie Holmes Gather. I placed a tiny word sticker from the reset Girl and a gold conversation heart from Cute Girl.
I hope you have enjoyed my project for the hop! Next you are headed off to Sarah's blog! Don't forget to comment on all of the blogs for a chance at a $25 SMS and a $30 CE shop credit!!!
