Thank You layout share

For April, Jill at Memorable Seasons sent the Design Team members the American Craft Letterbox collection.
I love how the papers and embellishments have a mix of pinks, blues, yellows, greens and even some orange. They are quite versatile to use with either boy or girl photos and I've had a blast creating layouts with them for her store.  The layout I made for the April Let's Scrap sketch used these same papers. click here to see that layout.

Here's another layout I wanted to share...
I used some Close To My Heart Fancy Frame Templates to create the curved edges on the brown and white floral pattern papers. I just traced them with a pencil, then cut them out by hand. I traced around the cut shapes with a white pen. The photos were matted with some light yellow cardstock that was punched with the Apron Lace border punch. My journaling was added by writing on white cardstock scraps, then cutting them into strips with a pair of scissors. The strips are adhered to the layout with foam tape to give them dimension.
To create my title, I cut out one of the labels printed on the Sincerely paper, then added a rub on from the coordinating Letterbox glitter rub on sheet. I love how easily I was able to create a great title accent. This was also mounted with foam tape. To pull the colors throughout the layout, I added one of the Letterbox Dimensional stickers (flower) to the title area and some buttons in several places on the layout.
To create the custom colored doilies, I used a plain white doily that I received in my design team kit and colored it by spraying it with a brown glimmer mist, then I painted the doily with the gold Blingz...wow!! It sure sparkles in real life...I tried to capture that in a photo...see below.
The small date label was punched from some pink cardstock and I added some deeper color to it with a sponge and a darker pink inkpad. The pink and blue buttons were threaded with white crochet thread and the yellow buttons were already pre-threaded with some tan hemp.
