Enjoy Life

I did this layout using Sassafras Lass' Sweetly Smitten Collection. I sprayed a couple of paper doilies with Tattered Angels' glimmer mists, and then layered the mounted photo and cut-outs over these. The doilies go very nicely with the circular knit-like prints on the background paper.

I also used laces to complement the border strips layered at the bottom of the photo, and specifically chose a knitted lace, again to match the knit-like prints of the paper.

The layout is then embellished with flowers from Prima Marketing.

Altered Bottle Caps (Birthday Invites)

I just realized I haven't posted this yet. My daughter celebrated her birthday a couple of months back and I wanted to make a birthday invite with a difference, just for the fun of it. I found some large bottle caps at our LSS and this was what I came up with.

The invitees' names are pasted on the front of the cap, and the details of the party are contained in the back.

It's really fast and easy to make, yet makes for an unusual invite. :)

Thanks for dropping by!

Have you seen Kaisercraft's Chanteuse Collection? It's absolutely divine! Here's a layout I completed over the weekend using papers from this collection. Again, lots of fussy cutting, and layering using dimensional foam dots.

For a variety of textures, I added some pearls, muslin, stickles, and Prima's new decorative ribbon border. The muslin and pearls especially give the layout a softer feel.

I then tore the borders of the base paper and cardstock and inked them, for a very distressed look. I really like how the finished product looks.

Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
