Tuckered Out with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a layout I created using the new Mulberry Paper Pack.

This picture of my boys is one of my all time favorites.  I found them crashed on the playroom floor, snuggled up together amidst their dinosaurs and transformers.  It melts my heart every time I see it so I decided it deserved its very own scrapbook page!

I started the layout using PowderPuff Chalking Inks and stencils on one of the lightly patterned papers in the collection, MB100. The large, striped arrow was inked with Desert Sun. The small arrow was inked with Hydrangea. (Please ignore the pretty pink flowers as that is just washi tape I used to hold the stencil in place and to mask off areas I didn't want to color!)

Heat embossing is an easy way to add another little bit of texture and dimension to your layouts without adding bulk. After the Hydrangea ink had dried I applied clear embossing ink through the stencil. I quickly removed the stencil, sprinkled on some clear embossing powder, then applied heat to set it. I love the shine!

In the title area I added a Fancy Chipboard Word - Love! I also included a wood chippie and an arrow that I die cut from the blue stripe paper, MB101.

I used another stencil to create the texture in the background by moving it around the page, flipping and turning and layering the patterns with the different inks.

Desert Sun was the perfect color to ink the edge of my yellow photo mat.  I just love the instant depth you get from that one little detail!

I doubled up with a slightly larger blue photo mat behind the yellow and then tucked in a kraft tag for journaling. I die cut the photo frame from MB101 and added the perfect Quick Quotes Vellum for my photo: Plumb Tuckered Out!
