Hello and welcome to my blog!! Jody here and I’m so very excited to kick of this HUGE blog hop with Creative Embellishments! This is a very long hop, so here’s my layout along with a few close ups. I used this gorgeous flourish from Creative Embellishments to help accent the feminine feel of our daughter’s First Communion. I’ll be sharing a few more layouts this month featuring CE Chipboard products so be sure to follow my blog. I cut the flourish in half to get more use out of it and painted it white using the new Shimmerz Acri-Tonez, self priming paint. That paint is AWESOME-SAUCE! It covered the naked chipboard beautifully!
I added some of my favorite Cork Confetti Butterflies, Moonshine Delight & Morning Dew Drop sequins, along with some other slight touches of mixed media with the Peach Fuzz Paste-eez from Shimmerz in the upper left corner and lower left and right corners. I cut apart and tucked in a few pieces of a Silver Foil Doily and The entire photo cluster also sits on a Chantilly Lace 8″ doily. I found some pretty gold rub-ons in my stash (Amy Tangerine maybe?) and mixed some different wood veneer and Thickers to create my title.
You’ll also recognize parts of a Bella Blvd branding strip. I love to save these, especially when they have words or phrases on them like the name of the particular paper or the company. I love them! And that’s a wrap for my layout today. Check out all the close ups and then you’ll be off to the SpiegelMom Scraps Guest Designer Laura Whitaker!!
