hello everybody!

today i would like to share one of my most recent layouts i've designed for BOBUNNY using their most adorable CHRISTMAS collection - "CAROUSEL CHRISTMAS".


collection pack - CAROUSEL CHRISTMAS
pattern paper - wishes / CAROUSEL CHRISTMAS
doubled dot paper - SUGAR, VINTAGE
glitter paste - SUGAR
Spray - GOLD 
stickable stencil - WINTER FUN
foil transfer - SENTIMENTS gold 
medium doilies
tools - palette knife assortment, scissors

TIM HOLTZ embossing ink
TIM HOLTZ paper distresser
MARTHA STEWART doily lace edge punch

and here are some close ups of my project and TIP&TRICKS on how i did it:

use GLITTER PASTE and a stickable stencil to create the shimmering layer on the pattern paper.

using the foil transfer sheets, add cheerful phrases to your project.

TIP! before adhering the fussy cut images, emboss them slightly using a ball stylus and adhere them with mounting foam tape.

add pearls and swirls to decorate your project.

for my title i used a chipboard phrase from DUSTY ATTIC. i covered the chippie with embossing ink and then a layer of STAMPENDOUS! embossing enamel and heat embossed the set.

and here is the step-by-step YOUTUBE tutorial:

i hope you enjoyed today's project!

THANK YOU for stopping by today! and have a lovely week!
