Got My Learner's Permit!

Susie here today with a layout that celebrates the day my daughter got her learner's permit! Teaching my daughter to drive was a little stressful and a lot of fun...or maybe it was a little fun and a lot of stress?!  Either way, I took the time to snap some photos along the way.  I took pictures of everything - from the ticket she pulled at the DMV to the vision test to the moment she finally got behind the wheel!  When I was ready to scrap it I was so excited to find that Want2Scrap had the perfect 12x12 overlay!
I started by trimming the overlay to an 11.75" square and centering it on some green paper/cardstock.

One of my favorite things about using overlays from Want2Scrap is that they come with built in title areas.  The laser cut area for this overlay is in the bottom right corner.  Don't you just love the car key?
Strips of washi tape embellished with more of the Sleek Strip Purple Rhinestones are a simple and pretty accent I used all across the layout.
The overlays come with white backing paper that create a frame inside of each opening.  I actually used the white edge to do some simple journaling.  (She was fearless, but mom was a little nervous!)
Overlays provide a clean background that make it easy to incorporate lots of fun embellishments:  washi tape, stickers and custom labels!  Here are close ups on the last few openings...

Happy Birthday - Chipboard Quotation

Candy here and today I have a card that features the Happy Birthday - Chipboard Quotation and the Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circles SM - Turquoise Rhinestones.  The design paper for this 6" x 6" card is from Heartfelt Creations Enchanted Mum Paper Collection.

I added Viva Decor 3D Stamp Paint in Metallic Violet to the Happy Birthday - Chipboard Quotation using a sponge.  I then added an Iridescent Rhinestone for the dot on the "i".

I adhered the Purple Sleek Strips 12" Rhinestones, cutting to fit, to the design paper.  Then I die cut green and yellow Bazzill cardstock using Spellbinders Celtic Medallion 2. The Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circles SM - Turquoise Rhinestones fit around the outer edge perfectly and the Nestabling Heart - Circles Hot Pink Rhinestones fit around the inner circle.  I added a Turquoise Rhinestone to the center of the Medallion.

Have a great day!

Heat Embossing your Title!

Susie here today with a mixed media layout featuring a title made with one of Want2Scrap's Fancy Chipboard Words and a little embossing powder!  
I created a textured background using modeling paste and the brick stencil from Want2Scrap, using ink to blend it into the background.  I layered on papers and embellishments before topping things off with pictures of my mother-in-law from 2 very different times of her life.

I created the title by applying dark brown ink to the Fancy Chipboard Word and then added clear heat embossing. It is so easy to alter Want2Scrap chipboard using paints, inks and embossing powders.  You can quickly create a custom embellishment to match your layouts and projects!
I tucked a piece of LeCreme Swirls Finesse behind some ephemera and it is done!

Here's a close up of the photo of my mother-in-law as a young girl.  What a cutie!

Be sure to check out the Want2Scrap online store to find the perfect chipboard title for your layout!
