Little Moments Big Memories

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to my next instalment for this month...

Have you seen our challenge for this month? Who doesn't love a Christmas layout?
Our challenge is all about Christmas in July.
Here are the requirements:

1. Follow the gorgeous sketch by Susan Stringfellow
2. Your project must have the Christmas theme
3. You must follow the Letter Challenge component...include 3 elements in your project that start with the letter C (could be a title, colour, product, technique etc)

For my second project this month I have followed the sketch but have turned it to cater for my portrait photo and have taken out a few features. It has a Christmas theme.
I haven't really followed the letter C challenge at all...but could cover it off at a push.

I was very excited this month to have a little play with the Colour Blast Colour Spray that I got in my kit. I truly think that my whole layout is centred around this one product.

Here is the layout that I have created...

I started with the Colour Blast Colour Spray - Coffee. It leaves a gorgeous covering on the cardstock when spraying from a distance. The larger dots are where I took the lid off and splattered the liquid around. I also used the spray using the stick attached to the nozzle and spreading it along the edges.

I also enjoyed using the gorgeous 'Encore! Ultimate Metallic Gold Ink' I used this to ink the edges of the cardstock (over the Colour Spray), on the edges of the patterned papers and on my embellishments.

Here is a close up of the little cluster of embellishments that I added to my layout. Two cute little chipboard hearts, a gorgeous wire star and some cream twine. 

I have used the Kaisercraft Decorative Die words 'Little Moments' for my title. I die cut it from a piece of card and then inked the words with the Encore ink.

I have also used the Encore ink to ink the Scrap FX -String of Arrows chippie.

It has been a while since I have used brads on a project. Just love these white ones!
They just finished off this part of the project.

How gorgeous is the 'Prima - Sweet Peppermint' paper collection?
I just love the colours in the range. So easy to use.

All of these products are available at Scrapbookit -
