Layout Share: Never a Dull Moment

For the Design Team kit this month over at Memorable Seasons, Jill sent us the Imaginisce: Animal Crackers line. This line was so different from what I would have normally chosen on my own, but I really loved working with these papers and embellishments! After completing 3 layouts and 4 cards total, I even have a few more scraps left over with plans for another layout.
 
 And here's my first layout I created with the products in this kit:
I fell in love with the bright colors and loved how they worked with these photos. And by using the ticket border strip, I was able to add five photos to this single page layout.
For my title, I adhered one of the wooden stars to some green pattern paper, then cut it out. I loved the way the light wooden star looked so bright and cheery against the tone-on-tone pattern paper. Inside the star, I added some red glitter alpha stickers, then stamped the rest of the words in my title. I also added the buttons around the star to balance out the layout.
 Of course, I had to use the ticket stamp on this layout too...I love this little stamp! I stamped it over and over again on white cardstock, colored the borders with colored pencils, cut them out and added them in various places on my layout. I love the random look the tickets gave when layered on top of each other. To finish off the look, I stapled the tiny staples on the tickets.
 I also created a journal area by stamping the tickets in a row and cutting them out in a strip instead of individually.
And who says you have to use the whole image when you stamp it? I just cut off the bottom part of this ticket and tucked it under my photo for an instant date marker.
To finish off the layout, I backed it with white cardstock, then sponged the edge with some brown ink to soften the edges.
