Hello there! Amanda here today to share a layout I created with the July embellishment kit.
I was so excited to get this kit in the mail along with the new Happy Things collection. I just adore that collection! You can see the first layout I created with both of these on my blog here.
For my second layout I again used some paper from Happy Things and paired that with some watercolor paper. I wanted to mimic the water from my photo and did a wash of blues and greens for my background. I don't feel like this picture quite picked up the detail in it, but the effect is there ;-)
I did a little stamping and embossing with that adorable summery stamp set and created some layers with the tags, washi and embellishments. The printed wood veneers and acrylic words are just awesome!
I don't own a manual die cutter but really wanted to find some way to use the ampersand die. I ended up incorporating it into my title simply by lightly tracing around it. I love that it adds a little something without overpowering the area.
Thanks for looking! And be sure to check out the embellishment kit in the shop if you haven't already!
