NEW VIDEO: Just One of the Girls, 12"x12" Layout

I have a new layout and video to share with you today! This one features papers from a new DCWV 6"x12" Stack called "Chickadee" and the Echo Park "Everyday Eclectic" collection.

I just love how these hot air balloons and clouds turned out!

I have this fun photo of Mr. Lifeguard standing in a booth at CHA. These girls managed to talk him into doing a make & take, so he's posing with his finished creation!

I used an app on my phone called Pudding.to to add the bokeh filter to the photo.

 These glitter letters came from Michael's and are their Recollections brand. They're a great size to add to your letter sticker collection. They're bigger than the small Tiny Type stickers, but not as large as Thickers - great for a long title or a sub-title.

Up, up and away!

These balloons were cut from the Echop Park papers. The clouds were cut from old school Scenic Route grid paper with the Sizzix Arrows, Banners, Chevrons & Clouds Thinlits. LOVE this die set!

The arrow stamp is from Studio Calico/Hero Arts. The heart wood veneer is from Studio Calico, and the diamond wood veneer is from Freckled Fawn. I used Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Rose Coral to color the heart and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Mustard to color the diamond.

Can't find a perfect match? Make your own custom embellishments!

I used the Mama Elephant "Smitten" stamp set to create this custom banner. I built the sentiment by stamping multiple sentiments in black ink on grey cardstock. Then I used a border punch to decorate a piece of paper from the collection and wrapped it around the cardstock. A little bit of string and I had a fabulous, custom embellishment! I love how it looks here.

Layer embellishments to add texture and movement to your pages!

I love how the balloons are layered over and under the clouds here. The clouds are then used as a space for some extra journaling (place and date) and embellishment. The fabric brad from the Dear Lizzy "5th & Frolic" collection gives some extra texture to the project.

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: Just One of the Girls.

 Thanks for watching and have a GREAT day!
