Corina is sharing a fabulous Love Layout today.

Happy 1st of March Everyone!

Corina here, to host the blog for you today. I have created a page layout using paper from BoBunny and the wonderful detailed Southern Ridge Chipboard.

On this layout, I have used four different Southern Ridge chipboard pieces. For the Clock, I kept it simple and added Black Soot Distress Paint to the top and let dry. For the other three, I altered the chipboard pieces by using distress paint as a base colour and adding embossing powder when it is still a little wet. The embossing powder sticks only in some spots giving it a non perfect coverage. I heat set my type & colour of choice embossing powder and the result is a shabby/worn look.

The BoBunny Line that I have used is called Juliet. I have used the paper named Juliet for the base and have cut out and sewn number pieces from the Abundance sheet to the base. I used black corrugated cardstock and the back side (blue) of the Full House sheet to matte my photo. I added a stitched border to the photo matte. The Cards from the Full House sheet and flowers from the Milan sheet were fussy cut and tucked in to create layers. 

Southern Ridge Chipboard Used
- Love Word
- Scroll Borders
- Vintage Clock
- Navajo Pattern
