Sweet Puppy Kerra Layout

Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a layout of our sweet puppy to share with you. Well, I guess she's not exactly a puppy anymore but she is just as playful as one LOL. ;-)

I love adding dimension to my layouts and I know that doesn't always work the best when putting them into an album but this one is going on an easel and I am going to use it as a home decor piece. I love to have layout out around the house for display and to enjoy them. I started out with a piece of Kraft paper and then I used one of the lace borders from Crafty Secrets Antique Trims stamp set. Next I stamped flourishes around the outer edges using Crafty Secrets Flourishes stamp set. I used Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the images. Then I inked the edges of the paper with Ranger Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and inked the outer edges with Rich Cocoa.

To create the letters for the title I used the Grand Calibur, LF-003 Donna's Alphas die templates and Premium Craft Foils Jewel Tones from Spellbinders. First I cut the letters and then I used the Grand Impressabilities GI-001 Fall Splendor to emboss the leaf print into the foil and then I sanded the foil. I added some Baby Bling Black Rhinestones to the side of each letter. You can also see a close up of the Flourish stamps along the edge of the paper.

Here is a close up of the flourishes and leaves. I used Premium Craft Foils Precious Metals and Jewel Tones and S5-071 Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags & Accents to make the flourishes and leaves. After I cut/embossed the foil then I sanded it. I also added a piece of lace trim and Finesse Swirls Black Rhinestones and 72 Counts Brown Rhinestones from Want2Scrap™.

Here is a close up of the Antique Trims lace stamp from Crafty Secrets.
