My intention was to use tiny tags to create my photo base, and only colour mists to create my background, rather than patterned paper. Talk about easy, and fun. I started by choosing some of the cards from the Cloud 9 Collection, and one journal card from the Let's Go Collection to act as my base, and ground everything. After that, I simply sprayed some Heidi Swapp Color Shine (in mustard) near the area where I wanted my photo cluster to be, and then dropped some coordinating colours around the outer edges of the yellow. I then took my long narrow date stamp and placed it just off center to the left of the page. From there I placed my yellow journal card to be the base around which everything else was layered.
A few Mini Icon cards scattered around with some coordinating buttons and enamel dots, and my layout was complete.
Mixing in just a touch of gold from the Cloud 9 label stickers, and (last year's) Good Tidings Christmas rub-ons, helped to tie in the the gold glitter alphabets that I knew I wanted to use for my title.
I have so enjoyed my time with Chic Tags. Albert & Veronica are two of the kindest, most encouraging people you will meet in this industry. They love each of us as designers and most importantly as people, and have been a huge inspiration for me with their innovative and trendy products. I can't thank them enough for allowing me to go on this wonderful adventure with them. I wish them all the best in their future endeavors. I also want to thank each of you who so faithfully popped in to see how I might inspire you to use Chic Tags products. Your comments always made my day, thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your scrappy journey.
Much love from the bottom of my heart,
