Tim Holtz: D&B layout

Today I’m sharing a layout I made for Tim Holtz (CHA) – it’s a fairly straightforward one too.

First off – I don’t know what I ever did without Tim’s design ruler. It’s great for tearing (seen on this layout) and also has holes so you can punch measured holes for stitching like I did on this layout.

I really wanted to play more with the kraft glassine, so I used these photos of Rebecca meeting ‘Wilderness Donald’ at Disney World. I *love* that kraft glassine so much! I crumpled it, then flattened and taped to paper and printed my journaling onto it. I also accented with stickles, a paper bow, and a few other fun details.

The edges of my paper bow are distressed with Tim’s distress tool.

Another great addition to my Disney World album! Glad to see that book starting to fill up!

Girls Paperie 2011: Miss Fashion

As a part of the Girls’ Paperie design team it’s my pleasure to be allowed to work with the new products and create projects and samples for their CHA trade show debut. Today I’m sharing my first project with you – one with the Vintage Whimsy line.

I really love all of the little details and embellishments Margie has added to the Girls’ Paperie this time around – so much fun stuff!!

From lace trims to cameos to rose brads… I just don’t know what part is my favorite. I love the soft colors of this line.

I used gold UTEE (embossing powder) with the stamps for a raised effect on cardstock before cutting out. The rest of the layout is pretty straight forward. The photos are about 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 in size.

All the roses, pink, and polka dots in this line make it such a sweet girl and springtime choice.
