Pretty in Pink Layout

 

Materials:

  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Large Expansion Pack 101040 - Pillowbox
  • Easy Action™ Micro-Tip Scissors
  • Adhesive - Glue Dots®
  • Alphabet stickers - Thickers
  • Cardstock
  • Paint brush
  • Photo
  • Ribbon bits
  • Tag
  • Twine
  • Watercolors

 

Instructions:

  1. For this layout, I letterpressed the tiny dots using a plate from the Large Pillowbox Design Set. This is a great way to use different letterpress plates. Simply wipe the letterpress plate clean with a damp towel after each use.
     
  2. I chose to letterpress the small dots using pink, yellow and blue watercolor paints.

  3. Next, trim the boxes to form squares. Adhere the squares onto cardstock to form the background.

  4. The rest is up to you! I layered patterned papers beneath my photo and adhered them together. I also added a title using Thickers, added journaling onto the tag and adhered them both. Finally, I topped the layout with some twine bows, and I was finished!
