Absolutely Fabulous

12X12 layout August 2012 Kits Barn Door Kit Bazzill Classic Calico 2 Country Boutique Fancy Pants Heather Landry Kids Neutral Stars Studio Calico

Happy Monday everyone! It's Heather, and I'm back to share another project with you. Have you ever taken a photo and loved it so much that you were nervous about scrapping it? This is that photo for me. I've had it in my photo stash forever and I hadn't come across the perfect paper to use with it until I got my "Barn Door" August kit and add on from Scraptastic Club. 

I loved the neutral colors in this kit. They work perfectly with black & white photos. The design on this page was inspired by the little wooden stars. I used a large die cut star to ground my photo. I cut more die cuts stars for accents, and I attached the little wooden stars by randomly tossing them on the page. I adhered them where they fell. 

The rub on stars were very easy to apply. I placed a journaling spot on top of one of the die cut stars and I used foam adhesive to make the chipboard butterfly more dimensional. I decided not to paint the tiny wooden stars. I really loved the plain wood finish. 

Here's a closer look at the title work. I chose to adhere one of the big gems in the center of the chipboard "o" to add more interest. I like to add special little details like that. 

I hope you all have a happy, scrappy day!

    Yep! I just tossed them on the page. I wanted them to look random instead of trying to cluster them uniquely. Thanks so much for the comment!

    LOVE the use of the stars! I was especially intrigued when you said you glued the stars where they fell. Great pic and I can totally understand why it was hard for you to scrap. She does look like a little princess!
