We Are...

 Happy Thursday to you all!

This is a layout about my sister and I that I made with some beautiful Robin's Nest products.

I started off with a sheet of Ancient Map Cardstock as my base. I splattered a bit of white mist on the right side of the page before I started layering.
I layered some light beige packing paper, 2 types of vintage lace, a piece of brown herringbone cardstock, a glassine bag with a manila tag tucked inside, a sheet of paper from a vintage Japanese book, a rub on from the Time Rubon sheet, some gold glitter leaves, and a white feather.

A closeup of the embellishments on the left side of the photo. Men's Dew drops and in love in Italy dew drops are scattered throughout the layout. I stapled a little snippet of glitter gold on creme swirl cardstock directly onto the photo to offset the title. 

I made the title with the gold glitter alphabets which I then sewed over.
The hidden journaling inside the glassine envelope completes the title. In the journaling I listed a few of the things that my sister and I are. (sisters, friends, etc.) I tied a bow using some ribbon from the Blessed Pinks Ribbon Pack onto the manila tag so that it would be easier to pull out.

There's also a bit of grey airmail washi tape and smoke cardstock layered at the top of the layout.

Thanks for visiting the blog today!!


You've Captured My Heart

Happy Thursday!

I'm not usually much of a card maker...but lately this has changed. I will be starting my first year of college this week and I know my schedule will be super busy and hectic, so I have been making cards in advance to send to my boyfriend who lives 600km away. This way I will have a bunch of sweet notes/cards to just drop in the mail and let him know I'm thinking of him. :) 

As soon as I saw the "you've captured my heart" ribbon in the Dazzling Pretties Ribbon Pack, I knew I had to use it on a card. It's so versatile! You can mist it, cut it, sew it etc. On my card I chose to leave it's natural colour but snipped it into 2 pieces. 

 I diecut a "speech bubble" sort of shape out of the discovery girl glitter cardstock and layered it over some white tissue paper and white thread. Some mist splatters, in love in Italy dew drops, hand drawn hearts, and gold airmail washi tape give it a bit more detail.
I added a bit of glitter to the edges of the diecut shape, sewed through the ribbon with pink thread/my sewing machine, and added a button to finish it off.
The button was just a plain wooden button which I embossed with gold embossing powder then sewed on with simple white thread.

My post is also up over at the Chattering Robins blog today!
