Sugar & Spice
This is my very first blog post here, and I would just like to say how much fun I have been having so far as a member of the Design Team. One of the things that I am loving about being on the DT is that I am being challenged to use chipboards that I would not normally use and therefore I am creating layouts that I wouldn't normally create. However that is not the case with the chipboard that I have used on the LO for this post. I absolutely love love love this chipboard and let me tell you, it has been put to the test. I only wish that I had taken photos of what I did to this poor chipboard.
I had heaps of fun creating this LO and it all started with the chipboard. One of the great things about this chipboard is that it comes in 2 pieces (sugar & spice) and (& all things nice) which makes it heaps easier to fit to a layout because you can move it around much more easily. Well this chipboard started out with being covered in tacky glue, then I used a designer foil over it, I then decided that that was too much for it so I kept the designer foil look for the first part of the chipboard and decided to cover the second part with some liquid pearls straight over the top of the foil. Well after I put the layout together I decided that the chipboard was all wrong for it and it was getting lost with the busy paper so I then made the chipboard glittery instead. Let me tell you, I was impressed with what I put it through and it turned out looking fabulous.
I had so much fun with this LO and love how it turned out, I have included some close ups of the embellishments for you as well J
Well I hope that I have provided some inspiration. Have a great day!
