It's the middle of the week and I have something fun to share!
A couple of weeks ago I got a big box of stuff from Lifestyle Crafts to welcome me to the new Scrapbooking Studio Team. I have been doing work for LC for about two years as an affiliate, trying out new products and posting projects to my blog but now I will be posting something new each and every month!
In my box of supplies that I just received was adhesive-backed wood that is thin enough to run through a diecutting machine. Isn't that fantastic? I was so excited and knew I'd have to try it out right away, so I did on this project I'll share with you today. I also ordered some adhesive-backed vellum, which I used on this page as well.
Gold is "all the rage" right now in scrapbooking and in the world as a whole so I wanted to use some of that on this holiday page, and the Lifestyle Crafts gold Shape N Tape was perfect!
Patterned paper: Webster's Pages (in my LC welcome box)
I started this page out by cutting some stars from the LC adhesive-backed vellum. I used the LC star punch set, which includes both a large and small star die. I was originally going to just use the punched stars but decided to use the negative image leftover from punching the stars first, then layered the stars on top of that, then added some gold spray mist (Heidi Swapp). I used Lifestyle Crafts' Sticky Thumb adhesive to glue down the extras on my page.
For the next step I layered my wallet-sized pictures over the vellum background and cut additional stars using the smaller punch and the adhesive-backed wood. I cut some strips from the gold Shape N Tape and added those to the top of the page.
Here are a few more detail shots of my layout:
I love the woodgrain! It comes in a pack of 8 sheets with 2 each of four different shades.
I added some gold alphas from American Crafts as well as a few other AC stickers as accents on the page.
Because I had a few stars leftover I decided to create this card using those and the new Hello Pocket Scrap Die. These new Pocket Scrap dies are so cute and trendy with all of the "Project Life"-style scrapping.
Well, in my post title I mentioned something about a giveaway ☺
