I started out with a layout using a fun technique my friend Linda showed me to draw attention to a small portion of a photo: crop the significant part and then mat it and place it over the hole in the photo to emphasize one portion on the whole photo.
I was nervous when I attempted this technique, but I love the way it draws attention to the tulip leaves to that they don't get lost in the snow. This layout is out of the ordinary for me in that it doesn't include any journaling, but I think the other elements - photos, title, butterflies and colors - work together to tell the story.
On my layout I also used hemp and the Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes.
I loved the Roxy paper so much that I decided to use it to create some cards for a young girl's birthday and a baby girl's baptism.
This template worked well for both cards. The Art Philosophy cartridge and the Cricut made it quick and easy. I really like the ready made zip strip border on these papers! I used some small sparkles and hemp on these cards as well.
