Paper Layers + 12 on the 12th

This month, I am very excited about the Glitz blog challenge because it required that I use paper layers on one of my projects. Glitz paper layers are really easy to work with and come with a bunch of different designs, so they are perfect for layering, cutting and using on projects.

On my layout, I decided to use my Cameo to cut the title for the page out of one of the book papers and it worked perfectly! The book paper came out with really nice and clean cuts.

I also cut a 2" X 7" strip off of another book paper, pleated it and ran it through the sewing machine. Once that was done, I misted it to bring in more teal onto the page.

For a final touch on the page, I freehand cut a heart from a piece of book paper. I love that it's very thin and I don't have to tear up old books to get the look on my pages.

This year I've decided to play along with the Ella Publishing Take Twelve challenge which encourages us to take 12 photos on the 12th of each month. It's a pretty easy challenge and I love that I end up with photos that wound not have been taken without the challenge.

I decided to use all of the photos on a layout celebrating the little thing that happened on February 12.

The photos were printed at 2" X 2" so that all of the photos would fit on one page. Although none of the photos are particularly of fantastic quality, I love that together on a page they tell a story about our family life.

Thanks for stopping by today!
