My Little Shoebox layout

Today I want to share the layout I created for My Little Shoebox with you!

Here's "Have a Drink & Relax", a page about my lovely dd! For this page I used the wonderful "Keepsake" line. What I love about the Keepsake collection is that all the papers are double sided. Because of that there are so many fabulous designs to choose from for your project and they all match so perfectly!

My favorite techniques are layering and machine stitching. I love to layer papers with different designs and colors and then stitch them all together. :)

To create the epoxy banners I used the Pennant tool from "Epiphany Crafts". To adhere the banners to the page I used 3D Foam Squares to raise them a bit to create dimension.

For this layout I used a sheet of cardstock as my base and layered 3 Keepsake sheets on top of it (“Razzleberry & Chiffon”, ”Garden Delight” and “Sound of Music”). The photo is placed on a matt of yet another sheet of the Keepsake line: “Windowview”. Behind the photo I placed two pieces of patterned paper, which were machine stitched first. I then added the title on top using two different sets of alphabet stickers (Sprinkle Glaze and Mini Alphabet Stickers).

MLS Supplies: Keepsake: Sound of Music, Garden Delight, Music to my Ears, Window View, Razzleberry & Chiffon, Cardstock Stickers, 3D Dimensional Roll Up Flower; Alphabet Stickers: Sprinkle Glaze (Whoopie Pies), Mini Alphabet Stickers (Chocolate Cake & Kiss); Clear Stamps: Sew Cute

Other supplies: Cardstock: Core’dinations; Ribbon: Webster’s; Epoxy shapes: Epiphany Crafts Bubble Caps Pennant 25; Flowers: Petaloo; Pearl Swirl: ZVA Creative; Twine: Divine Twine; Liquid Pearls: Perlen Pen Viva; Adhesive: Tacky Tape, Scrapbook Adhesives, Scotch.

Thanks for stopping by!
