Hey y'all! I have to apologize for this belated post that should've been up Sunday. My hubby & I went on an AMAZING getaway to Austin, Texas & while I set it to post on the YMH DT blog, I forgot to set it to post on my own blog!! I know, I am such a dork sometimes...LOL! But, here it is and better late than never right?
So this layout that I designed using some fabulous products from the YMH Store features our son's 14th birthday party last month. I absolutely loved being able to get this many photos on one layout! I was also to do a super cute ruffle that I just love! And it is easy too! I used some wire ribbon that I cut in half horizontally. I then gathered it all which is super easy since it is wired...you can do all of the ribbon before even gluing it on. Next, I adhered the ruffled wired ribbon with some hot glue (it wasn't touching my photos so I knew it was safe) to the reverse side of the die cut cardstock and then pop dotted it up on my paper. While you can do this with any type of ribbon such as THIS, I did love the wired type for being more manageable.
I also did a cute little banner, which is very hot right now in the crafty world, for my title & love how it turned out. Another super easy addition that makes any project stand out! All of the patterned paper that I used is by either Imaginisce or Pebbles Inc. & you can find those both in the YMH Store. I also used some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to spritz the die cut cardstock and then dipped a brush in to distress the edges of the paper too, prior to adding the ruffle. I am absolutely addicted to my glimmer mist & find myself finding all sorts of ways to use it! You can also find a large variety of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist at an excellent price in the YMH Store!
I hope you take the chance to hop on over to the Your Memories Here Designs blog & Your Memories Here Store...you will love both sites! New products are coming in & I know that I am super excited! Thanks for taking a peek at my layout & I'll be back tomorrow with another fun project! Happy Scrappin'!
