I'm off to the National Close To My Heart Convention in Washington DC in the morning. I'll post updates with exciting new products, tips, and ideas as I learn them.
We are having a team meeting tomorrow evening. In order to attend they've asked each of us to create a 9x9 layout about us. Here is my layout:
The hardest part was finding the right picture. But I gave up vanity and chose the most recent with my whole family all smiling! This is from Lucy's gymnastics recital. It was so cute! Imagine a couple dozen 3-4 year olds, some with parents, doing a mini-routine to "Home On The Range".
The layout went together very quickly. I used Close To My Heart's "Splendor" papers and stickease and the "Hot Diggity" stamp set. For embellishments I used Dimensional Elements On Target, Irrisistables Pizzazz Chipboard Die-Cuts, Autumn Harvest Brads Assortment, Liquid Glass, and the Glitz Stardust Glitter Glue.
To make the butterfly appear to be flying and the bird appear to have ruffled feathers, I stamped and cut out the image twice and layered them on top of each other adhering only the body. Then I curled the wings and feathers of the top image to give it the 3D effect.
Watch for updates in the next few days from Convention!
