This is a layout created using an old Swirlydoos kit. I've also used a Clear Scraps acrylic expression.

I've embossed the acrylic expression using an embossing folder and later, I've colored it with paint markers. I've also embellish it with pearls.

On this layout, I've also used a beautiful stamp by Vilda Stamps.

Family Misc Me (12x12)

Hi everyone! I can't wait to share with you all the outcome after playing with the new BoBunny Misc Me. I had so much fun playing with these new 12 x 12 Misc Me pockets. The new Primrose journal box set is so gorgeous and perfect for me to scrap some old family photographs.

Recently, I've been asked, how I'm able to work my style with these Misc Me pocket pages which are a little tight for tons of layering or dimensional embellishment. Here are some simple rules to follow.

First of all, you can always create or layer beyond the plastic surfaces. Secondly, you can even embellish beyond the pocket separators. Below are some example of how I've incorporated some different dimensional elements and textures onto the pocket pages.

So remember, there are no limits when it comes to creativity! You are always able to put your own twist on products to suit your style or preferences.

Caught On Film

This is a recent layout featuring BoBunny's Modern Miss collection. For the design of this layout, I've amplified the "look through the lens" by using mists and stitching.

Here are some details on it.

I've cut up the photograph to create the wood planks effect.

Have a wonderful weekend!
