DRCC Session 1 Class #7

Considering it's almost 2 weeks until Christmas, I thought a holiday layout would be nice for the last class before the holiday break. For the title, I cut out Noel on my Slice and placed it on top of vellum with 3D foam to. I then accented with some gold stretchy cord. I also used the cord on the stockings. 

For the accents, I stamped them on Colonial White paper and then cut them out so that the detail in the stamp is more visible. I heat embossed the sleigh runner in gold directly onto the layout to give the it some extra shimmer. 

We don't have a class until January 10, 2012 but check back here as I hope to keep posting some of my other projects. Merry Christmas!

DRCC Session 1 Class #6

This was a slightly challenging layout as I originally had a lot of white space at the top. White space can be important in a layout, but not if it makes the layout look too sparse. I will make adjustments to this layout in the future as the picture on the left side should be a 5x7 and of course I need to journal on the piece of cardstock on the right. This layout can also be flipped so that the yellow is green instead. It depends on the pictures used. 

The technique we will be using in class will be stamp kissing. That is when you take a solid stamp and kiss it onto a patterned stamp to give the image texture.
