Two things you need when creating a scrappy project! I adore fussy cutting and can't live without my Tim Holtz's scissors! And using borders that are cut into a variety of shapes adds so much!
Here is a recent layout using the January kit from My Scrapbook Nook. It features one of my favorite paper lines ever, Cupid by Pink Paislee.
I cut the brown shape from the die-cut paper in the line! I loved it as a striking background against the light pink and white. Even with something that bold, this layout seemed plain to me. Until I decided to add texture by layering scalloped borders. I choose to do them in white on white for a cool effect!
I have made 7 layouts, a card and a cute, cute project (coming soon) with this kit! You must check it out!
Speaking of checking things out, the January issue of Scrapstreet is up and it looks fantastic!
Now that you know what my fav tools are, I want you to tell me what you love to use when scrapping? I might need a little retail therapy! LOL!
