6x6 Paper Play with Jen

Happy 2014 to all! I am thrilled to be posting my first layout of the year using the January PL and PL Embellishment kits. In nearly a year of being a CTK Design Gal, I have found myself saying numerous times, "THIS is my favorite kit!" While it's always true, this is really my favorite to date. SC's Print Shop is an incredible collection of bold and subtle, bright and soft. For this layout, documenting my 39th birthday (eep!), I went bold. The words on the hot pink and white script pattern were the perfect message for my layout. Cutting just the strips I wanted from the pattern served as a use of the paper as well as my title.

And, the gold doily? Yes, please! This year is going to be golden...we are just days from moving into our dream home, baby #3 arrives just a few days later and the year is just bursting with promise. I wanted to see as much of that beautiful shine as possible so left it mainly alone, save for an overlapping label sticker (PL Kit) and the Thickers (PL Embellishment kit).


The other little additions were circle punches from the black/white frame pattern, a scallop cut following yet another design in the paper pad and a few hand cut hearts. I used my white Sharpie poster paint pen to add in a few splatters to mimic the look in the script pattern to unite the background.
