Use What You Got!

I am trim girl...I love lace, and nice fancy trims. I think they can add so much to a page. This week I tried something new. See, I had this half finished scarf laying around that I knew I would never ever finish. So I decided to use it on a page. :)

Here's my layout:



I used papers from Webster's Pages. That fabric circle with saying on top of the scarf is also from Webster's Pages. My chipboard is from Magistical Memories. I used the new "Budding Swirl" piece and then my frame is a piece from the "Fancy Book Plate Book". I just sprayed my chipboard with Glimmer Mist...it's just so easy to do. :)

I used Helmar adhesives to put my layout together. On the papers and chipboard I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. The frame (cut from paper that reads "Matt and Tam's Wedding") and then the fabric circle are adhered with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots...it kind of fills in the gaps underneath and securely adheres it, since they are layered on top of other things. And then I adhered my scarf to my layout with Helmar v2 Vellum Adhesive. Worked like a charm. :)

Here are some close up's of my page:





Hope I have inspired you today to use something that you have laying around the house!!!! :)

Have a wonderful day!
