*American Crafts Spotlight and Winner Revealed*

Hi Everyone,

I am back today to share my first American Crafts DT layout for the new DT year but first, I need to announce the winner of the American Crafts 2014 - 2015 Design Team Blog Hop! 

The winner is..........

Amy, please contact me so that I can send out your prize.  Thank you to all of those that took the time to leave a comment on my blog, I truly appreciate it!

and now on to my Spotlight layout.

Using repeated patterns on my projects is a signature style of mine.  
I loved the lovely word die to create the perfect background for my photos.

Supplies: Cardstock (AM710-81) - 12x12 White, Shimelle (368179) - Globe/Lovely/Banner Dies, Shimelle (368171) - Photo Overlays, Shimelle (368160) - 6x6 Pad, Shimelle (368175) - Wood Veneer Shapes, DIY Shop (366900) - Mini Stapler, Homemade (732621) - Glitter Stickers, Heidi Swapp (HS00793) Color Shine Bronzer, Adhesive (AM617-13) This To That Dispenser

How to:  Using watercolor paints, color a light pink line across the top of your white cardstock background page and set aside to dry.  Next, splatter gold misting spray on top of white cardstock and set aside to dry.  Use "lovely die" from the Shimelle die set to die cut title.  Die cut the 'lovely' title 15 times with various pieces of paper using the 6x6 Shimelle paper pad.  Print two wallet sized photos and cover with overlays before adhering down.  Finish layout by adding gold glitter stickers, wood veneer hearts and mini staples.

Thanks for stopping by today!
