Laugh Out Loud!

Hi there! Today I wanted to share a quick 2 page layout I created using The Paper Niche's April Design kit. Love all the Glitz Pretty In Pink paper included in the kit, and I used several of them on this layout.
The banner is cut out of light weight chipboard with an Accucut banner die, and I colored it using my Starburst Stains from Lindy's Stamp Gang in the colors Hottie Patottie Hot Pink and Alpine Ice Rose. I mixed them to get the perfect shimmered color I wanted for this fun banner.
I stamped the background of the dark cardstock I used with a very subtle pink color (Colorbox Pink Rose Chalk Ink), using the Kaiser Craft stamp included in the kit. I wanted subtle texture, and this stamp did just that for my background when I used very light ink with it.
I used the Tim Holtz rosette dies to make the paper rosettes you see throughout the layout also.
Some of the beautiful trim included in the kit also made it to the this layout, like that thin brown velvet trim on top of the photos, and the cream lace trim on top of the banner. The gems on top of the rosettes were also from the kit, and my favorite gem embellishment in the market so far. They are super elegant and reflect light so nicely. I'm just in love them! Talk to you again soon!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it so much!
