NEW VIDEO: You'll Find Me Here, 12"x12"

I have a new layout and video to share with you today!
This one features papers from the Dear Lizzy "Neapolitan" collection by American Crafts:

This layout took my outside my normal comfort zone, but it's good to stretch the old creative muscles every once in a while. I actually had to let this one sit for a few days after I finished it to see if I actually even liked it. At first I didn't know if I didn't like it because it was bad, or if I didn't like it because it was a different style than I was used to. In the end, I decided I liked it after all!

Calgon, take me away!

 The collection pad came with a sheet of printed "die cuts" that I cut out with scissors. I layered them here with some brads from the collection, some stamping from My Favorite Things and a file tab punched from the DCWV Glitzy paper. I love all the different textures - fabric, glitter, shimmer.

I layered three ribbons together here to ground the photo collage. All three ribbons are from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy "Neapolitan" collection. I like that they have different finishes and shapes. It makes the layering more interesting. I added this die cut from My Favorite Things on top with foam dots and it makes a beautiful subtitle!

I used misting and splatter from Heidi Swapp's Color Shine (Mustard) to keep the eye moving around the page. Mixing these brads from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection in among the splatter drops adds interest to this diagonal line and the round elements help to break up any harsh angles on the page. The jar was cut from the collection papers and makes a great embellishment.

Add some sparkle with shimmer sprays to brighten up a plain cardstock background!

I filmed this layout coming together for my YouTube channel. You can watch the video below, or click this link to watch it over on YouTube: You'll Find Me Here.
