Jody here with a fun layout to share using A LOT of the Crate Paper Open Road Ephemera. I love these packs of ephemera but I often times have a bunch left over. My goal this month was use them up and I've come pretty darn close between this layout and the second layout I'm sharing on my blog today. You can check that layout HERE.
So, onto my CK post today :) I started with a 12x12" sheet of American Crafts white cardstock and splattered some Studio Calico Mr. Huey's in Sunshine randomly on my background. Then began to build up my layers. You know our fabulous exclusive die cuts?? Well, you can also print them so made my own stickers!! Pretty cool, right?! I printed out the film strip, then cut it apart to edge my photo. I also printed out the "Summer" die cut and created a stickers with that one tool. I also layered lots of the ephemera along the right side of my photo and layout, along with some of the printables which I printed onto vellum.
I also added in some machine stitching, which is never straight when I do it, and left the ends of thread to be free and hang out.
Take a closer look at the layered journaling tags in the upper left corner. The top card with 'love' and all the hearts is printed onto vellum to create a soft, summer-haze look. I layered the vellum printed card over white America Crafts cardstock then, layered combo over the pretty Capture Life pink paper. I topped it off with a little spinkling of Chic Tags wood veneer sequins!
