Create +Fancy That...

Hello Friends.  Today I wanted to share with you, a layout I've created with the new release dies from The Papercraft Hub.  And finally it is a layout from our big family trip last year!  Yes.  I know.  I am so far behind in my scrapping.  It is such a good thing then, that I DON'T scrap in chronological order! hee hee...

Mark and the kids were sitting on the steps of The Sydney Opera House having a little rest from all the walking we'd been doing and it was too good an opportunity not to take a photo!  I snapped a couple of photos of the older three kids as well, while on approach to the Opera House.  We definitely played the part of being the tourist that day!!

{The Tourist}

products used: cs - kaisercraft; pp - MME, Jillibean Soup, Basic Grey, Kaisercraft; alpha - October Afternoon mini alphas, American Crafts chipboard thickers; FTD - filmstrip, swirly flourish, butterfly quartet; other - machine stitching, black pen (sharpie), Tattered Angels glimmermist (sunflower & juniper).

On this layout, I have used the filmstrip:

 

But I have torn it down the middle and have joined the "solid" ends back together.  I have done this to extend the look of the filmstrip and to create something with a little more interest on my page.  I quite like the way it lifts up at the ends too.  :)


I have also used the new swirly flourish:


and the butterfly quartet.




Again, the delicate and fine lines on both of these dies create a transparent look throughout the layers.  I've even used the off cut from the butterfly quartet as a mask for my home made shipping tag!  LOL!

There are some gorgeous new product in the shop too and I can't wait to play with them.  Head on over there and check them out!  Stay tuned for some more creativeness to come...

Thanks for visiting...x
