Magnifique Paper Pack

Posted by Ruth at 10:14 AM
The weather is starting to get cooler, there was even frost outside today. You heard me... it's NOVEMBER, in CALGARY, and we're just getting frost! This almost makes up for the snow last May.

I'm still taking photos with my phone, but I just had to share this layout. The layout itself is from CTMH's "Magic" book, LOVE this book, if you have not seen it... oh, my, goodness. There are some pretty daunting techniques or "elements" in the book but if they are too scarey they are also easy to omit. This particular layout was picked by my upline Leisa for our monthly gathering. It uses the Magnifique (level 2) paper and the "Unity" and "Circle of Love" stamp sets.

The left page has my husband and I holding our second child, Kerowyn, right after she was born. It's one of my favourite pictures.


The right page has Alan with our youngest, Elora (top), Kerowyn (bottom left) and Koen (bottom right). If you look really closely you might notice that the top left and bottom right are "popped" with dimentional tape. That's because this layout calls for hidden journaling!! I haven't added it yet because I need to think about what to say heh, but the way it works is the top one slides up and the right one slides out to the right. You make a "tag" out of one of the embellishments that you can use to pull out the journaling. So, clever!!


A tip that Leisa shared with us at the party that really stuck with me was how to add the circles. They're just punched with a circle punch, but before you glue them down... fold them in half and then unfold them. This gives you a line to follow as you stick them to the edge of the page. The ribbon goes on overtop anyway and this way your circles are all neatly lined up. Great tip, thank you Leisa!!
