In the Driver’s Seat

Hey everyone!!  Today I’m sharing a new baby layout made with various items from Things That Shine Kits and Bits.

DSCN4358For the background I layered and stitched down two different vellum dotted papers from MME over a sheet of patterned paper from Crate Paper’s Boys Rule collection.  Then I began adding bits and bobs from Ashley’s amazing Things That Shine store.

I used these blue alphas from BasicGrey to create the title and dotted the eye with a tiny gold star from the Things That Shine embellishment pack Pop of Color in Neon Pink.  I painted this Things That Shine die cut star label with light blue acrylic paint, tucked it under a piece of book page from the kit packaging and layered it over a wood veneer flag tag from the Leaves are Falling kit.

Here’s a fun layered embellishment I made with washi tape from Things That Shine, which Ashley sells by the foot.  I roughly cut out the FUN label and stuck that down as my base and began to layer on top.  I cut this little flag tag trimmed in light blue from another Things That Shine washi tape, then stuck it on a piece of white paper and then it cut out again.

I layered some of the book pages that Ashley uses in the kit packaging under the photo creating a bundle that I tied up with seam binding from the Leaves are Falling kit.

A cute tiny little light blue clothes pin from the Happy Day kit used to hold on a couple of stars.

And the little stars themselves.  The yellow star comes from the A Love story kit and the red star comes from the Pop of Color in Red embellishment pack.  You can find these gold foil mini tags sprinkled throughout Ashley’s kits and bits or you can purchase the tags in gold and silver by themselves.  They are just awesome for showcasing little items.

Visit Ashley Calder and the Things That Shine here and see what she has in store for you!  I know she has an amazing limited edition Halloween kit to scrap all those Halloween photos you just took or have taken in the past.  So go and check out that spooky goodness!!!

Thanks soooo much for stopping by and I’ll see ya soon!!!  🙂
