Hello! This week we have a lovely case file at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, with so many different possibilties. Don't forget to check out what the DT and guests did with this case file:
And my layout:
Nine rectangles were die cut from white cardstock and embossed in nine different embossing folders. I distressed the edges and stiched the rectangles to the base cardstock. The photo was layered on a different patterend papers, die cuts and a strip of crepe paper.
Leaves w/stamps Sizzix Framelits die, which has both dies and coordinating stamps. I'll be using this one a lot, here I simply stamped the outline leaves with Archival Ink Viridian, on Specialty Stamping Paper. The swirls are cut with Karen Burniston's Hello Set die.
Love Sizzlits set.
Pocket Envelope die. The tag from Tag & Tie fits perfectly inside and the label from the Love Sizzlits was just the right size for the front. I cut it from Specialty Stamping paper, stamped a circle on it and the title of the page in the middle. The journaling is written on the tag. It's pretty personal, about how much I miss my sisters, niece and nephew, being far away from them.
Thank you for looking! I hope you can join us this week!
