Today I wanted to share with you a fabulous little paper company. I had never heard of them prior to attending CHA this Sumer, and they have some of the most beautiful papers! I recently tried out for their design team and, sorry to say, did not get asked to join. But based on their current DT, I know the new gals are uber-talented - I can't wait to see what they come up with!
At any rate, now that the announcement has been made, I can share one of my entries with you. I made this 2-page layout using the new Avalanche line from Upsy Daisy Designs. I based my LO on a sketch from the Scrapbook Generations sketch books.
All of their gorgeous papers are double-sided, so you will definitely want to head over to Upsy Daisy Designs and see all of the patterns, plus the extras they have that match each paper line. For my layout, I added cardstock from Bazzil for the bases and the dark brown. I also added white CS, and Textured Twilight CS from Close To My Heart, plus Glitter Cardstock from American Crafts.
For my title, I chose to stamp "work" in Versamark on the dark brown CS using the Rustic alphabet stamps from CMTH, then I cut out each letter. The "or" is also stamped, using white embossing powder and the CTMH Precious alphabet stamps (discontinued). "play" is cut with my Cricut, using Gypsy Font. I then cut snowflakes from several different Cricut cartridges - I just used the search feature on my Gypsy to find carts with snowflakes and chose those I wanted - in different sizes. I cut some from cardstock, some from glitter cardstock, and some from plastic packaging (like the Cricut carts come in). To make the clear plastic ones more visible, I swiped on some white pigment ink around all of the edges. This also gives a nice "snowy" look. Fianlly, I attached everything. I used Liquid Glass (like Glossy Accents) for the glitter cardstock, and brads for anything clear. The top and bottom brads are from CTMH, and the middle one is a Recollections from Michael's.
Alright, your mission is to head over to Upsy Daisy and check out all of their cool stuff. And be sure to tell them I sent you!
