Happy Tuesday! I apologize that I haven't gotten around to posting this until now. Yesterday I was feeling a bit under the weather. Anyway, here we go!
Last week, I received my order from HSN for the "Straight From the Nest" cartridge. If you haven't seen this yet, the images on this are too adorable for words! I love the fact that they have such different features, such as corner images.
If you don't own "Straight From the Nest", you can use any cartridge that has a muffin/cupcake on it for this particular layout. Because our sweet doggie is named Muffin, I decided to title it as such. But you could change that and turn this into a super cute birthday layout!
Here is a picture of the entire layout:
Some close-ups of the YUMMY muffins!
A few things to note: First, I inked the blue muffn top with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Broken China). To edge around the top of the pink muffin, I used light brown chalk. With a brown Zig marker, I added the detailing around the muffin tin (with the broader tip). With the smaller tip, I added the little dots. Then, "Crystal" stickles were added to the cherries on top, to give them a bit of sparkle. Pop dots were also used behind all the muffins to give the pages more dimension.
Both the title and the photo mats were edged with a brown marker to allow them to really "pop" off the page. Give this technique a try the next time you don't feel like using the shadow feature on your Cricut! :o)
The brown edging around each mat gives the illusion that more layers exist than actually do.
