Before I added the Simple Stories Generations patterned paper (called 'Always and Forever'), I distressed the edges, using sand paper in a sanding grip (Tim Holtz). I then ran scissors along the edges to tear it slightly before inking with an Color Box chalk ink pad in Dark Moss (also in the kit).
I added some banners cut from the same paper (reverse side) to which I added buttons and string. I cut two rosettes using my latest acquisition in the form of the Tim Holtz Alterations mini Paper Rosettes Die (which I love). The letters 'S', 'D' and 'J' are Urban Rhapsody die-cut stickers from K & Co. The remainder of the title is typed onto Safmat (another of my favourite products).
I took inspiration for this page from a layout by Karen Shady from The Scrapbook Magazine Issue 58 (page 16). Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment and if you qualify (see rules) your named will be entered into the blog candy draw.
