OF VOGUE AND BRADS

Hello everyone!!! This is Janis bringing you lots of blooming (literally!!! LOL!!!) ideas today. I finally got my package of new Upsy Daisy releases - - so I started creating as soon as I got hold of these yumminess!!!

The DT members were challenged to use Kim's sketch here using any of the three new lines with the Metallic Blossom Brads as the special ingredient. I looked at the papers and figured I'd go with Vogue in showcasing the brads. I soooooo love the floral designs on this line that I actually cut out almost all the flowers that I found on these Diva and Chic papers and used them on my two layouts!!!
Here's my first layout using Kim's May sketch (that's my dear sister on the photo!!!!) :
UDD Products Used: #VO011. Catwalk, #VO012. Chic, #VO013. Diva, #VO014. Fashionista, #VO015. Runway, #VO016. Strike a Pose, #BRD314.Metallic Blossom Brads.

Used this "Strike a Pose" caption as my title (I framed it using the filmstrip chipboard from Buzz and Bloom).
I teared the Runway patterned paper to reveal the beautiful design at the back!!!
Flowers galore!!! I layered the flower cut outs, curled the petals a bit and held them together with the Metallic Blossom Brads!!!

For my second layout, I changed the brads I used and went with Walk in the Park Fabric Brads. The photos show my dear daughter Nat with my niece Twinkle:
UDD Products Used: #VO011. Catwalk, #VO012. Chic, #VO013. Diva, #VO014. Fashionista, #VO015. Runway, #VO016.Strike a Pose, #EMB007. Walk in the Park, #UDD0106. Floral Flourishes. Sketch is from Pages in Time's May 20 Thursday Sketch of the Week.

Used this "Friends Forever" tag as my title...
Notice those stamped floral flourishes peeking out on my floral cluster? I also found the Floral Flourishes clear stamp on my package (I sooooo love this one!!!!!!!) so I figured I'd use it also on my layout. Initially I didn't know where I want them, so I just stamped on a clear transparency and cut them out. I found that this trick made it easier for me to know where to place them on my layout.
Hope I inspired you to play with your Upsy Daisy products with my layouts!!! I will be back blogging here in June 14 with another new line of Upsy Daisy goodness so stay tuned!!!!


Have fun creating,
Janis
