Happy Thursday!!


So hello there!  This day has flown by already (hence the late post) but I wanted to share a layout I did with the latest Noel Mignon kit (Office Party Kit) - get yours Here.

Ok - this seems to be the way I do things now.  I LOVE die-cut papers and this one is no exception.  My problem is that I don't always love the pattern inside.  This wasn't the case - but I also needed something else in the layout without competing with the shape.   So I simple traced the shape onto the Jillibean Soup paper and trimmed it out about half and inch inside what I traced.  This allowed it to fit inside of the shape instead of being the same size.

I made the flower from the pattern paper that was also included in the kit.  I used a flower punch for the center and one of my own Jenni Bowlin buttons for the center.

And then using the Basic Grey rubons as more of an embellishment by overlapping them - I really liked this!  I also brought out my page punch and used it for the Pink Paislee paper, tucked under that was a Basic Grey diecut sticker.

I know I didn't focus on one technique - but I thought it would be fun just looking at different aspects of my layout.  I love learning how and why people put things together.

Have a wonderful weekend!
