Time to play...

The Texture Brew pack is chock full of cool printed heavyweight cardstock: wood grains, burlap, weathered boards, and brick.  I pulled out the brick sheet and cut an 8" square from the center, leaving a 2" border frame. 

I used scissors to fussy cut a frame from the 8" square...   

...and layered the border frame behind a piece of weathered wood cardstock.  I tore chunks of the paper along the edges to reveal the brick below. 

I applied a thin layer of the Whipped Cream Sparkle Paste to the Ornate Chipboard Frame and set it aside to dry. 

The iridescent sheen is a subtle and beautiful detail.  

Five self-adhesive, colorful butterflies flutter across the page and tie into the colors in the photographs. 

The final touch is a tag cut from the burlap printed cardstock and tucked behind the brick frame.  

I love the way this layout turned out! 

There was so much product in the box that I made a couple more projects. I will be sharing tutorials for those in the near future so be sure to check back for all the details! 

In the meantime, thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  

Check out the rest of the stops along the blog hop for more inspiration and ideas.

  1. These are great projects. I especially love how you exposed the brick on the edges of the page. (I need to get these papers.)

    1. Thanks Sue - and these are actually pieces of cardstock...very sturdy. This particular set is wonderful for neutral backgrounds.

  2. Beautiful layout! Love how you have fussy cut a frame from the 8"x8" Brick texture cardstock!

    1. Thank you Rashmi. That is my favorite part of this project, too! It has been a while since I created a layout and this paper pad is so versatile - I love it!
