Layer It Baby!

Howdy folks!  Welcome, happy Monday to ya :)  Today is my last Guest Design Post for Craft Hoarders Anonymous. After all this time, are you STILL not familiar with this lovely challenge spot?  If not, puhlease click on the title and give it a little peek, you won't be sorry I promise :D

This is challenge #18 Layer It!
One good way to use your hoard is to use lots of it all at once! So, let's see those layers! We need to see at least THREE layers on your project! (Ink, paint, embossing, and mixed media products do count as layers!) Drag out all of that hoarded paper or those embossing folders that are in the back of the drawer. Use those stamps, dies, and punches! Show us the layers!

The prize is a goody!  A Lindy's Stamp Gang Gift Certificate for $30 to their store. In case you haven't noticed, I use their mists and embossing powder almost exclusively.

On to my project.  This is a layout I did of my beautiful daughter Victoria and my granddaughter Gianna on Gi's graduation from 5th grade.  What a gorgeous pic.  I used Heartfelt Creation's paper, die and stamp sets here.  Check it out -

I love Heartfelt Creations papers and their dies and stamp sets.  I picked up quite a few things at the Expo a couple of weeks ago.  This is my newest product obsession.  Really lovely items, the paper collections are stunning.  It is awesome how you can stamp and then use the matching dies to cut out the pieces!  I cut clocks and flowers like crazy and had a blast.

My layers consist of paper, which I matted, stamping, embossing, texture paste with misting and splatting, and then of course the flowers and clock pieces.  I did a random punching on the left and right side of the pages rather than systematically punch it formally.

Happy Fall Ya'll

Hey there friends!  Hope this post finds you all well. Today I am bringing you a challenge for my Guest Design spot on Craft Hoarders Anonymous.  This is Challenge # 17 and there is an awesome prize up for grabs donated by dt member Ginny Nemchak who owns Polly's Paper Studio.  Here's a pic -

 I'm a fall baby and I adore everything about the season.  Not too cold, the colors, the decor, it makes my heart sing :)  I did a layout of my son Santino and granddaughter Gianna when they were wee tots. They were on the side of the house with fake pumpkins and his wagon and it just said fall to me. Once again every piece of this creation came from my stash.  Not a single thing bought special, though some items are newer than others.  I will say this, that gorgeous giant flower has been in the goodie pile for about 5 years!  It never ceases to amaze me how long I hold onto some things :)

I used Bo Bunny's beautiful fall line from last year, Autumn Song, and I'm first getting it scrapped now. Wow, I really have got to be a bit more diligent with my papers and get busy using them! The vines in the top right corner I cut with my cricut, and the pretty vine frame and leaves are from Creative Embellishments.  The center of the flower was a clock face I cut out and glossy accented :)

This was such a fun layout to do. Between the pic and all the embellies and texture paste, just fantastic.I love how the path came, it just extends from the pic itself. I journaled on the back of the note card tucked in behind the photo.  It says - There was a time when these two didn't get along.  Santino didn't like sharing his mama.  Now, the two are best buds.  Uncle and niece playing together.  Time has flown and they are so big now.  I do miss those days while enjoying them as they grow.
