Lucky Me....

Happy Sunday (at least in the US) to everyone! It seems like it has been forever since I have posted for WOW! and I am super excited to finally be back on here.

Today I am going to share with you a layout I created using products from Little Yellow Bicycle, WOW! Embossing Powders, Freckle Fawn, and Tim Holtz. Since its March and that means St. Patricks Day and these pictures were taken when the family was altogether celebrating St. Patricks Day I decided to use them to create a layout for this months DT Project.

A few years back we made a deal with our kids, nieces, and nephews that if they could go the entire first year that they had their drivers license without getting any type of ticket (speeding, parking, etc) or in an accident that was their the end of that year we would give them $100. And let me tell you it was obviously a great incentive because we had to pay up with my two kids or our niece!! We still have another niece and nephew to go but we are 3 for 3 so far. Of course we couldn't just hand them the money, we had to make it a challenge. We found these awesome puzzle cubes where you put the money in the middle and closed it up. They then had to move the ball through the cube maze to the end to get the cube back open. It was so much fun seeing them struggle to solve the puzzle!!

I incorporated WOW! Embossing Powders into this layout on the strip of corrugated cardboard that I mounted the sequence of pictures onto. First I brushed on some white Gesso onto the cardboard and let it dry completely. Then I took my embossing ink pad and pressed it onto the cardboard. I used my WOW! Embossing Pen down in the groves to make sure some of the embossing powder got down in those areas too. I first sprinkled Metalline Green, tapped off the extra, and then heat set it. I went back and repeated these steps but this time sprinkled Earthtone Blueberry.

What an easy way to add dimension, depth, and color to your layout. I am super pleased with the result!!

Well thanks for stopping by today and if you have never used corrugated cardboard on a project before you should really try it. Or a really easy way to achieve the same affect is if you have a paper crimper and then you can make your own.
