So here is my layout that is up on the Marion Smith Design's blog today. I used the stunning new collection Mad Tea Party! I loved this collection right when I saw it, the colors are so pretty and the roses and ohmygoodness how I love Alice in Wonderland!! One of my faves ever.
For my journaling spot, I created it using Marion's new stamp sets! I combined the alphabet set "Typography" and another set called "Serendipity" that has a mixture of line breaks and other elements so you can create your own chalk style art and things like that!
I was scared at first, but I just grabbed a scratch sheet of paper and started to play and I was ok after that. It was actually lots of fun! Yes some of it is crooked, but I like to think that's what gives it that charm........right?? Maybe?? A little??
To go along with my book and chapter theme I wanted to use some book paper, but also wanted it pink sooo I sprayed it down with the new Blush Color Shine by Heidi Swapp! This is my favorite new color of hers, you could say I'm a little addicted.. The old paper took it like a champ and is very shimmery and beautiful!
Lots of layering and tucking;
Another stamp technique I used was heat embossing. I love doing this! You can call me a nerd or whatev but everytime I heat emboss something I'm like "WOW IS THIS MAGIC?!" I might even squeal a little. Don't judge. I used light pink powder and an adorable dainty new butterfly stamp that Marion has, then just fussy cut around the stamped image. Super cute and easy embellishment!
Thank you for stopping in today, and please make sure you check out Marion's new Mad Tea Party line, it is gorgeous!! Have a beautiful day!!
