You & Me by Jo Piccirilli

Hello!


It's Jo and I'm back today with another layout to share with you.


 
This is a very rare photo of my mum and I together.  We always seem to be the ones behind the camera!  So there is my first tip - try and get pics of yourself and don't be afraid to scrap them!
 
To create this page I started by stamping and flicking some mist over some white cardstock
 
 
 
 
Cut your patterned paper to size and mat onto some black cardstock and adhere to your page.
 
 
I then used the Bouquet embossing folder from the Serenity collection.  What I LOVE about Couture embossing folders is that they have a little slit at the top of the folder so your can feed a long piece of paper through and continue embossing without cutting your paper.  How cool is that?  Couture Creations are the only ones to have this unique design. 
 
So I ran a piece of co-ordinations cardstock through the cuttlebug and then gently sanded it back with a sanding block.
 
 
Once you have stuck this onto your page you can now start and place your embellishments.
 
To embellish this page I have used a few blossoms from my stash.  I also used the Lily G doily die from the Royal Jewels collection.   I cut two out of just plain Reflex copy paper and placed them under my photo.
 
To make the little hearts I used the hearts nesting dies and cut them out of light weight chipboard.  I then painted them with some Tim Holtz distress crackle paint.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time
