Whenever I use a patterned paper for a background, but I am covering most of it up anyway, I will make a frame and just have the edges of the patterned paper show. I am a use-every-bit-of-the-paper kind of girl...especially if it is one of my favorites! So this is what the back of my layout looks like:
As I kid I remember a poem that my mom used to read to me by A.A. Milne called Halfway Down. I used to love it and it has stuck in my head forever. The other day my 8 year old was doing his reading homework in the most unusual places and the words to this poem came rushing back. I used some of the words as my title for this Chic Tags layout. Check out the blog today for a little tip to do with your Chic Tags mini icons.
Last week was button week on the Epiphany Crafts blog. I made a layout with some handmade flowers and then embellished them with some custom buttons. The hand stitched stems of my flowers adds to their homemade look. I don't know about you…but spring is definitely being welcomed in this neck of the woods! What a winter it has been!!
Since St. Patrick's day is just around the corner I decided to make a quick little tag with some buttons. I used some green patterned papers behind my Epiphany Crafts buttons and then arranged them into the shape of a shamrock.
I am back for another fabulous term on the Pretty Little Studio Design Team! I love working with these products... and just when I think I have found my favorite, Melissa designs something new! Looking forward to another term with amazing designers!
This layout was up on the Pretty Little Studio blog over the weekend... There is a sketch challenge going on using circles! Hop on over to see more inspiration and to read details about the challenge for this sketch.
