If You Think My Hands Are Full….

Hi there!!

Yes, it is quiet possible you have thought you have come to the wrong blog with all of these 12×12 layout’s I’ve been sharing lately but if your here, welcome and I hope you are enjoying seeing something different from me!! I will add here that I have taken a bunch of photo’s of our 2015 PL album and plan to share those sometime this week (I hope!!).

But that’s enough chatter!! I’m here today to share another 12×12 layout! This time the whole design was inspired but the gorgeous cut file in the background which I purchased from The Cut Shoppe (gorgeous, gorgeous designs!!) and am entering into their challenge for the month of August!

I have used a photo from Mother’s Day 2015 paired with the cut file, some pretty blue glitter cardstock, a full piece of 12×12 from the Shimelle collection paper pad, some black and white scraps from my scrap box and some Shimelle stickers and rub-ons!

After I cut the cut file I knew I wanted something bright and bold behind it so I started flipping through papers and found this one!! I picked the cut file and the background before I picked the photo by the way 😉

Before I adhered the cut file I cut some of the blue glitter cardstock to back the hearts, attached those with a liquid adhesive and then attached the whole piece to the background paper. I LOVE how this turned out!!

There wasn’t a great place for the journalling so I used the white border all the way around for it!

As you can see I have layered up a bunch of scraps behind the photo, cutting and tearing some (thanks Missy Whidden!!) and popping the photo up on pop dots.

I have used some alpha’s that I picked up from Big W (the typewriter type font) and some thickers from my stash. The “fabulous” heart is from the “Lovely” PL edition and this card is actually dry embossed and I just cut fussy cut the heart from the card. The mini tile alphas are from the Shimelle sticker sheet, the “absolutely”, the camera and the gold hearts from the rub-ons and the wonderful and wander stickers from the same pack of stickers the alphas are in.

I finished off with a little bit of stamping with a roller stamp and black archival ink.

So, I hope you have enjoyed and happy scrapping!!
