Layout Share with Shawna

Hi everyone, Shawna here.  Today I am sharing a fun layout using some really great products from the shop.  I really wanted to try out these new star dies from Paper Smooches so I basically started out cutting a bunch from the Maggie Holmes Styleboard 6x6 paper pad.  I love the pretty, subtle colors in this line.

The layout came together really quick and easy so I don't have all the little details to share but here is a closer look at the DIY shop burlap bow that I wrapped with the Caribbean twine. I thought this dressed up the bow nicely and gave the layout a fun touch. The fact that it was so easy was nice too!

Here is a close up of the Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste chipboard piece I used.  It is covered entirely
with gold embossing powder which changes the raw chipboard feeling entirely.

Now that you have seen a couple of details I used on my page here is a full look.  I tried to do a lot of layering like normal but not lose the photo in the mix.  I think that it still shows nicely.
Some other products I used from the shop were the xoxo stamp from the Technique Tuesday Kiss stamp set. I used the Delicata Gold ink to stamp this. The wood grain circle die cut is cut from one of the DIY journaling cards.  One other product you can find on the Butterfly Reflections, Ink site and my page are these American Crafts Thickers.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the Design Team!
