Nevermore Layout

 This is a layout I created for my scrapbook club ladies.  It was created using the Nevermore papers.  The Nevermore papers are geared toward Halloween, but I tweaked it for a Thanksgiving Layout by adding in some of Close to My Heart's new colors; eggplant and pomegranate.  I also took the wreath from the White Pines Cardmaking Workshop on the Go and added some pinecones to make it look more like fall and less like Christmas.  I am excited to add some pictures from this year's Thanksgiving to finish the layout.  This paper is only available through December 31st, so order it soon from my website before it is retired.

Flashback Friday...Seside

This was one of my favorite paper packs in the old idea book.  Unfortunately, it is no longer available, which is why you should always jump on getting what you want and love before it is gone!  lol!  Everything is distressed with chocolate ink, which is time-consuming but worth it.  I used several stamp sets including, Beach Gear, Hello Summer, and the stamp set from the Seaside Workshop on the Go.  I used some Glacier twine and popped up all the circles with foam tape.  This layout is screaming for me to add some pictures of my kids swimming in the pool.

Sangria Layout

I created this layout for my scrapbook club using the Sangria Papers.  I heat embossed the flowers from the Wavy Blooms stamp set with gold embossing powder. I also used some light brown paper from the paper fundamentals pack.  It has a glossy checked pattern that perfectly complimented the heat embossed flowers.  I cut one of the flowers out and used foam tape to it to add dimension and put it next to the picture frame.  I added some gold ribbon and called it good.  Here are a few close-ups of the details.  Doesn't that gold embossing look great?
