It seems to me that lately I 've lost my mojo :-( , but that's ok, I just keep going and hopefully it will come back!
In this layout my favorite element is the little envelope, I cut it in my CraftRobo using a template that Vicky created and generously shared, you can get it too HERE and you know what, she also shared a PDF template so you don't have to have a digital die cutting machine, you can just cut it by hand! Isn't that cool?
Then I used distress inks and also sprayed it with a water and Perfect Pearls mix and after it was dry I stamped on top with my latest favorite toy, the Hero Arts "Old Letter Writing" stamp, using green distress ink. Inside I put a copy of my niece's first "letter from Santa"!
I also used Ranger's "Crackle Accents" on the small printed embellishments, I didn't like it because it ruined the colors of the image, I think I'll only use it on cardstock, pp etc. The papers and the stiker are from the Cosmo Cricket "Jolly by Golly" collection. The "Twinkle Little Star" is a stamped paper piece that I coated with UTEE, I really like UTEE because it gives an epoxy finish very easily and quickly.
