Tuesday Tutorial with Nina

Hey everyone it´s Nina again here on this fantastic Tuesday. Today I’m going to share a layout tutorial using the Citrus Twist Kit May Main "Sparkle and Shine" and Embellishment Kit "Happy Girl". Lets get started:

To begin the page you need a picture in the size of the golden chipboard frame. You can use some 3D pads to add photos layers with a little bit more of dimension.  
In the next step cut a strip and card out of the Webster´s pages paper for the use in your background.
To make the layer more fluffy use a piece of silk paper (this one is from my stash), fold a bit bigger than the frame, and fix it with a tiny attacher.
It´s a great detail to use a paper straw also on a layout. You can cut it lenghtwise with a sharp knife, add some liquid glue and press it down careful onto the cardstock...  
Add some pink ink splashes onto the background. 
To get a great feeling for the measuring of the page cut out the rub-on words with the back foil. So you can easily find the final place for it. Do the same procedure with the embellishments you want to use. If everything looks great you can flip up the edges to add some glue behind.
And this is the final result....

Thanks for visiting today the CTK blog.
