Layout – kiss


Hi, Jenifer here with you today sharing another layout.  I loved the Core’dinations paper that I received; my pack had wonderful patterns and colors.  I also received a pack of glittery papers; those are the white punched flowers at the bottom of my page.  The glitter was hard to get a good picture of but believe me when I tell you they are pretty cool.

Here are the steps that I took to create this page:

  1.  Sand the cardstock to revel the cool pattern underneath.
  2. Punch your white glitter paper and your patterned paper.
  3. Take your 2.5” Grosgrain ribbon 351-94 and do a large running stitch with the Twine 412-17 and gather it to give it some texture.
  4. Layer your ribbons as desired.
  5. Add your pictures and other small bits and pieces.
  6. Create and add some flowers.
  7. I added some iridescent paint around the edges of my paper and also on the aqua grosgrain just for fun.

Supplies used:


Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today, leave me a link I would love to see what you’re working on.
