DT Project #2 by Minxy Featuring:

Christmas Cottage Collection by Teresa Collins

Hiya snazzy gang, Here I am back again as promised with my second offering.

A great way to show off pretty papers is of course with a scrapbook layout.

I used Snowflakes #CC1004 and the reverse of Tiny Flowers #CC1001 as my base page, Rather then waste all the tiny flower paper that would of been lost behind the snowflake sheet, I cut stripes for the top and bottom and keep the centre piece for another project which i'll be sharing on friday. 
I built up layers beneath my photo using off cuts and scraps, as well as a pretty heart doily {snazzy's sells a really great doily mix pack}

I always plan my pages and get everything where I want it before I stick anything down, I also take a quick pic with my phone so I don't forget the layout when I start moving bits to stick everything down.
My glue of choice is cosmic shimmer glue.

I used lots of the elements from the die-cut sheet that came in the paper pack.
And used the Christmas Cottage acrylic stamps to add words to the string banner. 

I continued to add more of the CC die-cut elements, and some Prima mistable pieces and a Prima wood button till I was happy with the overall look, finishing off with some CC decorative brads
All that's left is for me to add a bit of journalling so I know when and where the photo was taken.

I hope you have enjoyed today's offering
I'll be back on Friday with my last project.
Don't forget to be in with a chance of winning a little prize leave me a comment and then hope along to THIS POST and leave a comment there also.
Till next time..
Stay Inky
