Here & Now

Hello everyone, Melanie here today to share with you my very first project, it is such an exciting time for me!! I am so very grateful to be part of this awesome team of ladies and working with such awesome products, this is truly such a joy and honour for me. I hope you will enjoy my very first project on the blog.

I created this layout using the Everyday Life II collection. I love the versatility of this collection, the cards are perfect for layering, which is one of my favourite thing to do. As you can see I've used very little pattern paper, I decided to focus mainly on the cards.


I layered the card with an icon tag, I added a bit of stitching for good measure. The Here & Now quote was so very fitting to the topic of the layout that I decided to use it for my title. 


I trimmed out the quote portion of the tags and again added a bit of stitching. I kept the other portion of the tag, which is a banner and used it at the top portion of my layout and to the right of the picture. No sense in letting those go to waste, I had to make the most of all the little bits.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my work for Chic Tags. I will be back soon with another project that I can't wait to share with you.
