{1 Layout, 5 Ways ~ Layout 2}

So I finally have all my chores done...OK...well I'm still doing them but decided that the little ones are sitting still for more than 5 minutes so I can blog while they are awake...Big accomplishment!

So I started this series of blog posts last week and it is to show the versatility of what one can do with some simple changes such as adding embellishments, changing paper or adding stitching, stamping, embossing and much more...

I wanted to share this Easter layout I did using the same pattern and different paper ~ Lucy!

Now I love the color Pear and I definitely love the Bunny Love stamp set...{I use it often!}
Here is a rundown on the layout...

I cut out my photo mats and the B&T pieces... Cut out 3 scalloped circles with the CTMH Punch and then used one of my mini hole punches and punched holes around the circle to give it a lacy look... Using the CTMH Watercolor Pencils I colored the bunnies and let them dry, I then applied glue and some white glitter to the bunnies...I random stamped some little flowers onto the Base to add some detail to the page without it being distracting... I printed out the word 'Easter' and using the Piercing tool poked holes to form a pattern and hand stitched the word to form my title... lastly, I took a piece of Sweet Leaf Ribbon and tied a knot and adhered it to the layout...

 Some simple watercolor pencil coloring and a glittered bunny makes this one cute bunny!
 This bunny is grey and not to be disturbed...
Who doesn't like to blow bubbles? This bunny has Liquid Glassed bubbles to add a raised texture and glossy look to each of the great things you can do with Liquid Glass!

Now I used banners on the last layout and wanted to switch it up...
Using Ribbon as an accessory is a great way to add texture and detail to a layout or card. I usually use a strip of ribbon alone or with a bow but rarely use a knot... I definitely will be using this look more often {and it is easier and faster too!}

I LOVE Scriptina font! I decided that some of our CTMH stamps feature this font in some of our stamp sets...For Every Occasion is an example. I decided that for the title I wanted a challenge...I do not sew! Especially with a sewing machine...far to scary for! With this all in mind I practiced first to ensure you would be able to make out the word and once I was confident you would be able to read this layout, I was in business! In a sewing fury I was finished with a couple poked fingers and 1/2 hour later...Voila! I had a title!

I hope that you enjoyed this and will come back soon to see the next post in this series of posts!

Let's Live Inspired!

  1. Fabulous layout, Tasha! I had no idea that a font matched our stamps. The rabbits are adorable.


Thought sharing happens here!
