Thanks for Coming Back!
I'm still celebrating with my SOC sisters and my daughter Alexis. I'm so very proud of her, which is why she is my focus during this celebration blog hop.
Layout 2: Supplies
- Paper: Stampin Up!
- Paper: Me and My Big Idea
- Stickers: EK success
- Border trim: Recollections
- Bling: Recollections
My daughter is NOT a fan of pastel colors which is why I'm continuing with the bright colors. I used the black Congratulations paper because I wanted to make the layout pop. I cut a large frame by using the Storybook Cricut Cartridge; set for 10 inches. I cut it in half and inked the edges to tone down the white. I also matted and inked the stickers.
|Example 1: Inking and Frames|
Q: How often do you ink the edges of you paper? Do you ever use inks other than browns and blacks?
I've been trying to experiment with different layouts by doing things like the large frame cut in half and adding bling in different spots, not matting my photos and inking. I've also discovered how to stretch my expansive paper packs and make use of all of the leftover white paper that is inside each page protector. Because I like the feel and weight of Stampin Up! paper, I try to make it last. I cut the patterned paper and glued it to the white paper.
|Example 2 "Adding Bling"|
I also added a little bling for added emphasis. Not a lot just enough to bring extra attention to the borders and the title blocks. You would be amazed at how a little bling livings up a page. I placed bling an various places on both pages.
Q: Do you use color bling or mostly silver and gold? Do you like the scrolled bling?
THANKS AGAIN FOR VISITING!
