Here is a look at my project,,,.
I was so lucky to receive three great dies from Die-Versions and I loved them all! The Christmas Tree was my fave I think though! I started with Bo Bunny Silver and Gold papers to make my layout. I cut the top paper by hand in a random shape, inked it and then distressed the edge. I adhered it to the bottom layer of paper using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape.

My stars are Technique Tuesday; I heat embossed them using Halo EP, then stamped with Crackle Background Stamp. The blue die-cut under my photo is from EONS ago, from a K&Co set- I just wanted a little bit of blue to match the ornaments on my tree in the photo!

I had big fun with the Delicate Tree die! I cut it from white textured CS, sprayed it with two colors of Dylusions ink, then used my Sakura Glue Pen and Luau Green GL to add some accents to it. Love how it turned out!

I cut the edges off a couple of doilys, sprayed them with Memories Mist Bright Gold, then when dry I ruffled them and glued them under the edge of the top layer of paper.

To accent my photo, I cut the Scrolly Bow die from Sticker Paper, removed the backing paper and burnished with Gypsy Red GL. My title is the Deck The Halls Sweek Wordlets- these are so tiny, but so cute!

 I used the Scrolly Bow die a second time, this time using red sparkle CS.
This photo also shows the coat of Iridescent Memories Mist that I sprayed over pretty much the entire layout- including the edges of the photo as a finishing touch. I love how this looks, esp on holiday layouts!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
