MPS event layout
This was a fun layout to do, especially because all the papers are scraps! The green floral was actually white card stock, the kind that comes in the page protectors when you purchase a photo album. I used a 12 x 12 template by Crafter's Workshop as a resist and misted the whole sheet with Maya Mists, emerald green. The rest of the papers, black, light pink, dark pink and white (pleated boarder on bottom of top right pic.) were all scrap papers a good friend of mine gave me. The papers are remnants she was gifted and shared with me, so I have no idea of the manufacture. Both border punches used are from Fiskars; Lacy Days of Summer and All a Fleur. The cricut was used to cut the embellishments: the butterfly embellishment was from Indie Art cartridge and the large flower is from French Manor cartridge. The flower's pink background/shadow was the tag feature, shift for the layer and cut at 4 inches. The green top layer of the flower was cut at 3.5 inches with the tag feature. The green paper was created with the Maya Mists on white paper. The green tag behind the flower pulls out and on the back I listed the names of the Cricut Circlets in the photograph. The ribbon on the tag is from Target's dollar spot. The trail of the butterfly was made using my i-rock and glam rocks. The bottom white paper with the group photo was made by pleating a long strip of paper with just random folds. The large layout photo doesn't show the texture that the pleating adds to the page but you can see it with the up close photo of the butterfly.
