Giggle Layout

Here's a fun way to use little scraps of patterend paper in your layouts. I used the 2 larger sqare punches and some clear buttons to create these embellishments. I used the largest punch to punch 3 squares from So Saffron cardstock and then the slightly smaller punch for the designer paper squares. This paper is from the "Sarah" collection. I tied some linen thread through the buttons and put a glue dot on the back to adhere the buttons to the page. I did exactly the same technique for the circles on the second page.

The colour combination for this layout also came from the designer paper. The colours are Certainly Celey, So Saffron and Brocade Blue.

The crocodile comes from the Wild About You stamp set. I stamped him onto Whisper White and stamped the little birdie on top. I then cut him out with my paper snips and adhered him to the page with SNAIL adhesive.

The edges of the Giggle square have been distressed with the tool from the cutter kit.
