On Fridays I like to Spotlight a specific manufacturer or collection that I love. This week it is Chic Tags! What I love about Chic Tags is that no matter the layout, pocket page or card you can always find something from one of their collections to add to your project. Today I am sharing one layout and two cards.
I started with a white 12×12 piece of card stock. I cut down pieces of the Cloud 9 “Goodness” and “Lovely” patterned paper to be just slightly larger than my photo. I wanted a little more softness to the aqua patterned paper so I spread some guesso over the front and layered a piece of vellum over it. I knew that I wanted to focus on the mini icons as my main embellishment.
I pulled out some icons that matched the color scheme but I wanted a little more detail on the icons so I sent them thru my die cutting machine with a stitched circle die. This added stitching around the circles and gave me a little circle frame. As I was cutting I thought I could use the left over circles frames in to the layout too.
I placed the icons and circle frames around the photo then added some sequin rub-ons. I love the look of stitching on layouts, so along the same line as the circles I added some stitching.
I finished off the layout by adding some sea-foam ink splatter from Hiedi Swapp. I also cut a light green transparency and a journal square to tuck behind the photo.
I just love the final result!
Now for the cards….
Super simple cards using the rub-ons in the Cloud Nine and Let’s Go collection as the focal point.
