My City Layout

This layout uses our Perfect Day papers. Colors are Cocoa, Juniper, Sorbet, Tulip and Colonial White. The stamp set used was Life's Creation. For the "My City" letters, the Chocolate Alphabet was used. (That has to be the best named stamp set ever! =)

Quite a few small details on this layout that I wanted to share too. The first being our new Rub-Ons! Our Rub-Ons come in one package with three colors, White Daisy, Black and Chocolate. For this layout, we used the Chocolate Rub-Ons. So the border running across the top of both pages is from our Rub-Ons. So is the small Chocolate flower in each of the little stamped flowers by the "My City" phrase and "love" phrase. The "love" phrase is also a Rub-On as is the "Memories..." phrase. And so are the "brackets" on each side of the "My City" phrase.

Also, using our Black Stubble Tool in our Distressing Kit, Cocoa ink was added to all of the edges of the Colonial White pieces.

The large pieces of Juniper on the bottoms of each page were stamped second generation with the flowers in the Life's Creation set, but it is really hard to see that though.

The striped piece of B&T paper just below the "Memories..." phrase also has one of the stamps from the Life's Creation set stamped on it as well in second generation. That was a neat little touch!

Then the large flower on the right side of the "My City" phrase is also from the Life's Creation set and is several of those stamps layered together. It was then put up on foam tape for the dimension. I finished it off with a Tulip brad in the center from our Spring Blossom Mini Medely Collection and added some of our Sparkles along the flower's side for a little extra bling.

The three tokens beneath the "Life isn't about..." phrase are this catalog's Connections Club rewards. One was also place on the left of the "My City" sentiment.

Underneath the picture on the left page is Cocoa ribbon instead of cardstock! The ribbon was cut at angles and added under that Colonial White photo mat. Then two ribbon knots were attached to the side as well.

This was a fun layout, a lot of little extra touches!!
