Layers on Layers on Layers

Here's my take on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge #3 for the month: to use layers in a project.



My pages are from my niece's baby shower. My siblings collectively have 5 boys and 2 girls, so we're a bit boy-heavy in the count. So it was extra nice to hear one of my nieces was having a girl. Now I'm a great aunt - who has yet to meet baby Vera, who's several months old now, but I hope to see her soon!
  All the layers:

Paper:  I used an Allison Davis sketch, so layering papers was part of the deal. As an aside....I took an AD sketch support class last summer, and it was such a motivator! It really got me into/back into blogging, scrapping, everything. 

Stickers: I layered stickers on vellum, stickers on photos and  bling on stickers to make the embellishments.

Pearls: The flower paper was already layered with glitter and embossing, but I added my own homemade pearls as flower centers, too.

Title Letters: I've read that you can make your own chipboard by gluing layers of cardstock.  I finally tried it - why did I wait so long?!  I had no idea how easy it is and how good it looks, and I'll never have a flat title again.  I cut "girl" 5 times (3 or 4 would have been plenty), with 4 from kraftstock and the top layer from a glitterstock. The layers of small letters were easy to glue with a zig glue pen. 


Everything came from my October kits. When I started the month I had no idea how useful my purple add-on kit would be! I can't think of a time when I've used so much (or any?) purple like I have this month.


Now please go take the challenge, layer something on your own project and link it on the CKC blog. Thanks for looking!

P.S. And don't forget, Momenta is the October prize sponsor at CKCB. Get the details here.

  10. Your layout is fabulous. I can totally relate to the whole boy situation. I am the only girl out of six siblings - and I have the only two girls out of 13 grandkids! We are definitely a boy heavy family also!
