August 24, 2015


Two papers that give you a lot of bang for your buck!  Kathleen here with another layout to share with you and I hope it inspires your own inner creativity.

The picture dictated the color scheme of this layout.  I selected the  Robin's Nest-Red Glitter Stars on Blue Specialty Paper and Robin's Nest-Classic Roses Cardstock.  The stars are so glittery in person.  I tore the Classic Roses paper down the the center and glued it to the stars paper leaving the center section loose.  I tore the second half to the rose paper again down the center and tucked one half behind the rose print revealing the striped print from the opposite side.  The last piece was torn on both sides and layered on top of the roses striped side up.  A piece of lace was also tucked under the striped section on top of the stars for an elegant look. 

Now you could leave it simply so or you could up it a notch by adding Robin's Nest-Rusty Rose Ribbon down one side.
The picture was matted in blue and placed on top of a doily folded in half.
The color blue is pulled across the layout by adding Robin's Nest-Alpha Glitter Stickers.  Here I used a ruler and placed the letters on the edge to ensure even spacing.  Then simply tip your ruler and stick the top of the letters to your paper and gently press them down off the ruler.

Robin's Nest-Blue Flowers and  Robin's Nest-Rusty Rose Flowers
They come in package of three different sizes.  I like to wad up the flowers first to give them a bit of texture.  Then bunch a tiny hole in the center and adhere a brad to hold your flower together.

Finally after arranging the flowers and adding a few embellishments I top  it off by adding a wee bit of paint to add depth.

Thank you for joining me here today.  I hope you will stop by the Robin's Nest store and check out their awesome products.
