That Special Grad

Hey everyone. Here's a layout in honor of that special grad. It's another class I taught at Shabby Shutters. I used Teresa Collins's 'Summer Stories' paper line. The title was embossed with ultra thick embossing powder. Some of the circles were popped up. Splatters, washi tape, buttons and photo corners completed the layout. This layout was based on one from My Mind's Eye's blog. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.


Spring blossoms

Hey everyone. Just wanted to share another class I taught at Shabby Shutters. I used Pink Paislee's 'Hope Chest' collection. The flowers were cut using Tim Holtz's tattered floral die (one of my go to flower dies). For the burlap flowers, I brushed some Mod Podge on the burlap first and after it dried I cut the flowers out. The Mod Podge keeps the burlap from fraying. I have heard that you can also use a 50:50 tacky glue/water combo. Haven't tried that yet though. I layered 2-3 of the flowers and added some buttons and hand cut crumpled leaves. Some stitching on the corners completed the layout .This layout is based on a couple of PageMaps sketches. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
