Emma's Paperie | Oh Snap

I'm sharing this silly photo at Emma's Paperie Blog today!  This week the focus is on die cuts and I have to say, I may have gone a little bonkers with the embellishing ;)

Slightly addicted to Snapchat pix and die cuts,

Gossamer Blue | PomPoms

Happy Wednesday!

The July kits from Gossamer Blue are a refreshing change, lots of bold colors and patterns, mixed with a few lights and brights.  Just perfect for making a 4th of July layout!

I began my page with a dry brushing of white acrylic paint, then created the fringe strips using two patterned papers from the Main Kit.

I used additional papers in blues and red to mat the photo, then created embellishment clusters above and below the picture.  I found tons of embellishments in the Planner Kit that worked great for this cheerful, summery layout.

I love big alpha's and I cannot lie ;)  I mixed in more embellishments in the title, including labels, epoxy dots and die cuts.

I think those polka dot clouds are ADORABLE.

To finish the page I splattered on some white spray ink.

Shake your pompoms!

12x12 | You Are Capable

So I've kind of fallen in love.

With sanding and spray painting.

My mother's day was spent sanding and painting a few odds and ends.  I took this photo while waiting for paint to dry.

I started with dry brushing white acrylic paint, then added in some Shimmerz.  Next came all those One Canoe Two butterfly rub-ons.

I have been wanting to kill this collection as I just had some odds and ends left.  This layout just about got me there.

I also added in some cork from my stash.  The majority of these items came from an older Gossamer Blue kit.

Thanks to Tim Holtz for having the perfect words in his sticker book.

Enjoy it all.
