Here is a look at my layout!!! 


You will be able to find all the instructions and supplies used on this page HERE!

The background paper was made using the Flourishes 2 stamp set and Golden Sparkle embossing powder.  Just stamp with versamark and emboss with this oh so Sparkly gold powder!

The images were stamped and color with copic markers.  The sparkle that you see is Sparkling Snow, Raspberry Soda, and Daisy microfine glitter. The frame around the DP was made using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Shimmering Sea glitter, the look is really pretty!  These sweet flowers add that special touch to my page!!  I used Tim's Holtz Birdcage Die for the little bird, inked the edges and embossed to add that sparkle with versamark and Sparkle embossing powder, the sentiments were stamped and embossing in the same manner.  All were inked with brown ink. 

This beautiful Decor Chipboard Corner adds that vintage feel to my page.  I used Magic Speckle embossing powder to create this beautiful look!! You can find a great tutorial on how to used the Magic Speckle Here.  This is one of the prettiest embossing powder, I just love the look!!

The flourish is chipboard embellishment and it was embossed with Artic embossing powder, and Magic Speckle.  I did emboss the geraniums onto a small tag with Mullberry Star embossing powder.  Perfect for journaling!

The tag was cut using Basic George Cricut cartridge.  On the shadow tag I covered it with 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape remove the backing and cover with Shimmering Sea glitter. Just add a twine bow and you will have a pretty tag!!

Hope you have enjoyed my page, I really love how it turned out!!!  If you like what you have seen, be sure to view my SNS gallery HERE for all the details!
