A Fun Layout

This layout was quite fun to do!!! I love to cut and add dimension so this one thrilled me. It took me forever to do though with all the cutting and stickling but I feel it was well worth it - what do you think??

Here are the papers before I started cutting on them:



Here is the finished layout:


And here are some close ups of some of the detail:





OK what looks green is really Crystal stickles that for some reason picked up the green hue when I took the pics. I tried several angles and the same each time.

Materials List:

Stickles = Crystal & Xmas Red
Gems = Prima
PP = Cherry Arte
Journaling Block = Teresa Collins
Heart = Grungeboard painted w/ MM White & Distressed w/Tim Holtz Fired Brick & Tea Dye Distressing Inks
Chain & Charm = Tim Holtz
Ribbon = Misc from Stash

I did finish another card but it won't be revealed until the 11/2 so be on the lookout for a card reveal on 11/2 for my DT assignment at Am I A Scrap Addict - Sketeches and then the other reveal on 11/22 for my guest DT for the month of November!!!

Off to work on another layout!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!

Gf...it is just gorgeous! I missed ya and was thinkin' of ya so I had to pop in! Love the LO! :)

Jane said...

Oh my word Karen this LO is delishious, I adore what you have done here....I bet it also looks amazing in real life too!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
