Hi everyone! I hope you have enjoyed your summer. I can’t believe it’s almost over!! I don’t have any kids going back to school but I am looking forward to cooler temps, football season, and my wedding on Oct. 19th!!! Ready to be a honeymooner for sure! Anyway, I am here today to share a layout I did using some brand new paper that we have at the store, it’s the Carte Bella line “Beautiful Moments” by Carina Gardner. It’s so pretty!! I was actually a little timid cutting into it when first deciding what pieces to use and I am never like that with paper, but this stuff is just so gorgeous!! Here is my layout:
Now for some closeups, first I used a large sheet of burgundy colored cardstock that has been punched with one of the new Lucky 8 punches as a focal point for my page. I cut it in half and since I wasn’t too fond of the star pattern I ended up pulling some black tulle through the holes to add texture. Also I sprayed it with Smooch Spritz in silver foil and cherry ice and added some bling.
To go with the bird theme, I added a little chippy birdcage that I glittered and tied some twine to the top. I also used some Queen & Co felt border scraps and sprayed with Smooch in silver foil for texture. I think my favorite thing is the birdcage though!!
So that is all I have for you today! Are you in love with this new paper line or what? It’s so versatile for lots of occasions and I love the color scheme too! Stop by the store today and get some before it all sells out!! Enjoy your week!
