Teresa Collins Nine and Co. Layout

I fell in love with this paper line as soon as I saw it. I love the contrast of the white with the mint, soft yellow, and faint coral. I knew it would go perfect with the street photos from our trip to New Orleans. Mmm, I really love the colors in this layout.

I wanted to use the globe from a MME chipboard set. I am not a world traveler and I am not missing the opportunity to use this cute globe with the gold stand. The only problem was the globe is on a pinkish background and did not go with my white cardstock layout background.

I decided to trim the globe from it's background. Before I trimmed the globe, I pulled the layers of chipboard off the image. I pulled the chipboard from the image with the image face down on my craft table so that I did not wrinkle the image.

Once the image was thin enough to cut, I trimmed the globe from the stand with my small detail scissors. I was pretty nervous free hand cutting the circle of the globe, but it did come out just fine.

I used foam dots to give the globe and stand dimension and I did layer it over another chipboard element. I also gave the globe a bit of white wash from gesso to tone down the green. 

A little fun playing with paper and customizing an element!  
Here's wishing you a great week! ~ Tisha
