I'm back today, with a new layout for my CropStop Guest Designer post. Since I took several photos, on the 4th of July, I'm still in a Patriotic mood and decided to use some of my CropStop goodies with the new Vintage Summer collection from Little Yellow Bicycle and the Limited Edition June Kit from Elle's Studio. Here's a look at what I came up with!
I wanted to add some texture to my layout, so I used the Taylor Embossing Folder from the Elegance Collection. I ran the embossing folder through the Sizzix Big Shot for a dry embossed look on the Blue and White striped patterned paper. And since my layout theme was for the 4th of July, I thought it would be fun, to use the Blossom Doily Die from the Fantasia Collection to create a "firework" on my layout. The CraftWorkCards Candi Dots worked perfectly, to add a confetti touch to my layout and I added them to several of the "flower" shapes on my patterned paper.
I hope you have enjoyed my projects so far for the month of July, and I will be back next Thursday with my last Guest Post! I'll be sharing a Patriotic Card, so I hope you'll stop by to see it.
