One of my assignments for the Chickaniddy Blog this month was to create a layout with the topic “Men in My Life.” Well, there's only one MAN in my life - my awesome husband. (Yes, there are little men, our sons, but this one is all about my main squeeze!) It's hard to get him in front of the camera, but I was happy to find these three photos from Spring Break last year.
He truly is my best friend - he has been for over 20 years now. I'm so blessed to have his love and respect! And I'm super lucky that he supports my passion for scrapbooking, paper-crafting, and photography! I'm the luckiest girl I know!
Okay, less mushiness and more about this awesome paper! I love using the foil papers to die-cut shapes with my Silhouette. I wanted to cut a big heart to use on the background of my layout - but after I cut it out, I decided that I liked the negative space best - so I opted to use the silver foil paper for my background and let the patterned paper peek through the heart shape.
Of course I had to add machine stitching around the edges - the foil paper is lightweight, so it's easy to stitch right through it!
I also added lots of stickers - many of them have a bit of added dimension with foam dots behind them.
Be sure to visit the Chickaniddy Crafts Blog for loads of fun ideas – and some really great ways to use their new foil papers!
