Crate Paper-Craft Market & Maggie Holmes Layout

So happy Spring is really here and along with it, a new box of goodies!! So excited to play with my NEW Craft Market and Maggie Holmes lovelies.  This layout started before I came down with a horrible head and was finished while I was on a horrible head cold. At first I thought I went a little over the top. But now I am thinking, it is what I do sometimes. :p

I absolutely had to use the Open Book paper with the large muted black stripes. It all started there. Then I decided I should use some of the Craft Market ephemera because there is a ton of pieces in that package. So I layered some elements popping out of the craft bag behind the photo. Later I decided that was too much paper, so I added in some wood elements to break up the monotony of all those paper pieces.

I used part of my precious piece of Craft Market glitter chevron burlap under the photo. Love this piece of burlap!! The burlap is adhered to a thin piece of craft paper. I suppose one is to leave it on, but I pulled it off as I wanted the burlap to have more flexibility and to fray a bit. 

I did use hot glue gun to adhere things on this page. Everything but the photo. First time using hot glue gun on a scrapbook page, I felt like a wild woman! I needed the glue gun to adhere the burlap since I had pulled the paper off the back of it. And just kept on using it for the rest of the page.

I had finally gotten the package of  Crate Paper gold glitter word thickers. I must say, I was a tad disappointed that the words had bare spots where the glitter came off. But maybe, I had high expectations since I had to wait so long to find these babies! 

Well, there she is! My over the top, glittered up, burlaped, embellished page!  
Have a wonderful Thursday!  ~Tisha
