Junkie August Design Team Layouts!!

Despite a sick birthday boy this weekend, I still managed to complete my Junkie Design Team Layouts. This month I got to use some awesome new papers from GCD Vintage Boy Collection and BoBunny's Delilah Collection.

Take a look at the rich colors of Fall mixed with pretty pastel pink; all my favorite colors. Not to mention the beautiful die cut papers. I just love this line. The letters in the title feature some Heidi Swapp Acrylic letter. I love these things. I just adhered pattern paper to the back of the clear acrylic letters, inked with chalk ink and voila! I added a little felt trim around the die cut paper for accent. Flowers, always a must on all my layouts, top off the page. This is one of my favorite layouts!

The GCD Papers are wonderful too. If you haven't picked up any of the GCD Papers yet then you are really missing something. Their textures are unlike any on the market today. The Vintage Boy Collection not only has the feel of linen, but it is also embossed. I loved the little rockets so much and I really wanted to make a statement with them so I fashioned my own paper piecing pattern and made my own super-sized rocket embellishment. I love how it turned out. If you want to make one like it, let me know and I will send you a drawing that you can cut out and use as a pattern to make one for yourself. For the title, again I used Heidi Swapp Acrylic letters dressed up with pattern paper plus some Making Memories Passport chipboard alphas. I added a few Jolee planet stickers to add to the space theme and I think it topped the layout off nicely.

I was happy to complete these layouts because next week school starts and I am going to be pretty busy. I do have one more project to complete so stay tuned; I will be posting it soon.

Until Later,
