Multi-Textured Layout with lots of DIY "stuff"!

I used a glossy card stock for the background, I have quite a few colors in my secret stash, and printing on them would be impossible if not for the Perfect Crafting Pouch. I'm also a huge fan of texture, fabric leaves and flowers and GLITTER! This layout has it all. I'm so happy that The Best Glue Ever! stays tacky after it dries, it's PERFECT (no pun intended) for applying fabric flowers, leaves and ribbon. It won't soak through the item and you don't have brads going through your layout that get caught up when trying to slip them into the album.

Use the Perfect Cleaning cloth to clear up any tacky areas that you don't want tacky and to eliminate static electricity when using glitter.

First, I created a word processing document with a photo block and flourishes and applied the Perfect Crafting Pouch to the glossy card stock before printing the document.

**If you can adjust how much ink to use on your printer, lessen the ink output. When it's done printing, dump the embossing powder over the wet ink and heat emboss. Let cool completely.

Apply the Perfect Crafting Pouch again over the embossed areas then add detailing w/ The Best Glue Ever! and apply the red glitter, dump excess and let dry completely before cleaning the layout with the Perfect Cleaning Cloth. Adhere photo in place, slip the paint chip behind the upper left corner of the photo. While you are waiting for the glittered glue to dry, you can apply some squiggles of glue below the photo at this time, so it will also be dry at the same time and you can place your leaves.

Cut the large BTS letters, the name is printed on transparency film, the dates are stickers.
Assemble the title block. Use a small amount of glue behind the letters on transparency, then sew lines with red thread horizontally to secure edges.

Thank you for stopping by the blog, I hope you enjoyed this project.

Becky I love how you used the printer to get those custom flourishes. One question: was it a laser or ink jet printer?
Very pretty layout with so many techniques.
