"My Dog" Layout

Hi Everyone!

Mr. Drew here to share with you my 3rd EVER layout!! I decided i wanted to challenge myself and create a layout with these wonderful Donna Salazar Products! I am totally in love with the Spring in Bloom paper line because its so realistic looking!! Anyways lets get to it!

The Crafty Process –
1. For the Base 12 x 12 Page i used the Spring in Bloom 12 x 12 Paper Pad
2. I then layered on a couple border strips from the paper pad as well as punched a scallop border with a MS punch, also a strip of crinkled seam binding.
3. Then i layered a piece of the Crafty Chronicle, a paper doily, and a manila tag!
4. I layered a photo on top and added a bunch of sewing for detail.
5. The title says “My Dog” and is from some Kaiser Kraft Paper.
6. I punched out some birds and fussy cut some images from the Crafty Chronicle.
7. The Tim Holtz Mini Heart Die was used to make the little burlap hearts.
8. I then finished it off with some stamped Doilies, Staples, Punched Glassine Butterflies which i crinkled and embossed with Clearsnap White Embossing Powder, and some small Prima resin flowers and aluminum roses.

Here are some detailed photos! ENJOY!

    Hey Drew your LO is stunning. You are right those papers are so awesome. I really appreciate you putting a link to the paper pack. I often see papers that I fall in love with on peoples blog’s but they don’t name the line. This LO is put together perfectly. I love all the embellishments. Your little pal there in the photo is beyond adorable. I LOVE bulldogs! Thanks for sharing and I hope you had a great holiday
