Teeny Tiny Toes to Ticklez!

Last night, while my partner was out celebrating his birthday (read: getting really really drunk! LOL!) I scrapped a layout and finshed off a card. Yep, my life is pretty exciting!!! LOL!

I picked up a gorgeous piece of Girl's Paperie patterned paper the other day. It's from the On Holiday collection and is covered with tonnes of little bunting flags ready to cut up. I am a huge fan of the banner trend that has been so popular lately, but hadn't yet had the chance to incorporate it into a project... until now! I used this gorgeous patterned paper to create two banners on this page of Ollie at one month;

Teeny Tiny Toes Layout
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - The Girl's Paperie, Alphas - Cosmo Cricket, Little Yellow Bicycle, Word stickers - Cosmo Cricket, Paint - Making Memories, Pen - Uniball Signo.

In addition to the banners, I incorporated another technique into this layout - scraping paint across the page with an old plastic bank card. I discovered this technique on the Studio Calico blog in a little tutorial posted by Tina Aszmus a while back.

This layout has been made with this month's challenge at Kraft It Up! in mind - use Kraft and create a minimalist layout. Easy for me... I love Kraft and minimalist is my go-to style!!!

I have made another card using the May Ticklez kit;

Hey Cupcake Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - Jillibean Soup, Little Yellow Bicycle, Alphas - Adornit/Carolee's Creations, Rub-on - Imaginisce, Image - Crafty Secrets, Ribbon - unknown, Chipboard heart - American Crafts, Brads - American Crafts, Dimensional adhesive - Ranger, Kit - May Ticklez from Scrapz.Biz.

I added a few extras to this card... just couldn't go without some brads and a chippie heart.

I have just purchased another two packs of the Imaginisce rub-ons I used here. They are seriously the best rub-ons ever created!!! I have used them on so many projects already and cannot see myself tiring of them anytime soon!

Anyway, I think that's it for today.

And just a heads up... my 200th post is coming up soon, so I might just be doing a giveaway in the coming week or so. Hint hint. Wink wink!!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Love how you've done 2 little banners instead of a big one - the page is awesome!
