The Boutique collection is available until the end of December 2018. Buy it as a full kit or purchase individual items.  Today I am sharing a layout and a card. The layout was made using the leftovers after completing the 3 layouts from the Standard Workshop Your Way.

It’s a super simple layout! I took all the full 12” strips I had, divided them into 2 unequal widths and stuck them to the edges of the pages. The triangular zip strip was needed for a bit of interest.  Base pages are Linen cardstock

Next up was photo mats - the majority of these are cut apart PML cards. They are either 3x4 or 4x6 so I just trimmed my photos a little and I was in business.

The multicoloured striped journal box is also a PML card. It was a fun way to add interest without effort. The puffy stickers that come in the workshop kit are so fun to use.

Lastly, I stamped the titled using the new Brushed Letters Alphabet Set. I love that they are tall and narrow so you can fit a longer word into a small space.

This card was lots of fun to create. I mixed Boutique prints with Mint, Peacock and Sugarplum cardstock. The tag was created using the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts – a MUST HAVE in your kit for sure. The stamp set is from the More Magical collection which is only available until the end of this month. I heat embossed the images with white powder. And those little dots on the right-hand side? That’s texture paste applied through a stencil. I’m having such fun learning how to use this new product. The Boutique collection is available to purchase from your Close To My Heart consultant. A list of products used in my projects appears at the end of this post. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant.

A great layout, you showcased a lot of the papers using small strips which didn't overwhelm the layout, I really like it. Acute card, I can't wait to try the new textured paste.

I really like how you've used those triangle puffies as journal bullet points on that great PML card. I love all the techniques and textures you used in your card plus I love everything with Peacock, its a top 5 of mine. I can't say favourite because I don't want the other colours to feel left out. :)

This tag card is a great way to take all the colors of Boutique and spin them on their heads into something gorgoeus!
