For those of you familiar with Kelly’s style of scrapbooking, you know her work is definitely not your simple basic scrapbooking. It’s full of so many wonderful ideas and details, you can’t stop looking at it! Her border around her layout is just Sook-Wang tape (very sticky double-sided tape that comes in different widths) adhered to her paper, then glitter added. A Microfine glitter (Glamour Glitter or Glitter Ritz) works best. She has die cut her burlap into snowflake shapes, then added texture paste with a stencil on top to create a pattern. A die-cut doily was cut into quarters and one piece was added in opposite corners. There’s also glitter, stickles, snowflake paste, paint splotches applied with a splatter brush, thread… have we missed anything? The Tim Holtz Mixed Media die was used in the corners, Memory Box Snowflake dies, Tim Holtz Snowflake Rosette Die and Tiny Tattered Floral die also was used. Maybe Kelly can fill us in what doily die she used.
You may not want to use everything on one layout, but just taking one or two ideas from layouts you like and incorporating them into your own style of scrapbooking, can help you get out of the creative block that we all experience at some time.
Hey Kelly, aren’t those the same three little birds that joined you in Hawaii?
Have a great weekend!

Good morning everyone! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. It’s hard to believe that January is almost over, usually this month seems to drag on forever.

We all know it’s not going to last though, we still have a few months to go before we get to enjoy our spring. We have just a few January layouts left here to showcase and today is Kelly’s turn:
