Hello World

 White Daisy Paper becomes fabulous with a little Slate reinker, water and a one of our spray pens.  We sprayed just the left side of this page with Slate reinker and let it dry while we prepped the other things for this page!

We used our new Scallop Punch to create the scalloped Shimmer Trim along the top edge and under the picture on the right.  One hint, put the glitter side down when you are scalloping it! It works MUCH easier, both ways work but this way is better!

The Lagoon Washi tape was folded in half the long way to make the banners on the left by the overlay and by the picture below!

We stamped along the bottom with the One Way Borders stamp set using Whisper and Honey inks.  The same stamp set was used to stamp on the Goldrush paper with Goldrush ink to create a chevron pattern. 

White Daisy paper was added under the Lagoon photo mats to make the hearts pop!  The Baker's Twine was added after that to add a little more interest.

On the Cork Photo Mat from the Midtown Cork Shapes, we stamped another one of the One Way Borders stamps.  We also used and arrow and banner  from the cork shapes!

Overlays from the Artbooking Cartridge were used on the left and right pages.  It is great to use them as an accent not just to cover the majority of a page.  Washi Tape and Aqua dots were used in various places on the page!
 I had more pictures than they had space for on the page and really wanted to include the picture of Lora and Bongo.  So I pulled out my flip flaps small assortment and adhered it under the photo and put the remaining part of the photo in the flip flap.  I am going to put another picture on the front of the flip flap and journal above Lora's head.  It was a neat solution to the problem I had!  Quick and easy too!
This is the Flip flap folded down!

Which one of these products or techniques would you like to try?  For every 5 posted answers I will draw a name for a special gift for you!

  1. Looks like you really had fun at the retreat! Love the layout, and I think I'll try stamping on cork shapes and maybe getting creative with adding extra pictures using your Flip-Flap technique. Thanks for sharing.
