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!
