Believe in Yourself Layout

I bought this paper at the scrapbook outlet, and no it is not Close To My Heart. I was excited to use some old stuff again. I used Simply Stated Rub-ons and Paper Bliss-Hearts that I have had forever. The only thing was that I went into panic mode when I decided the hearts would be perfect, but I could not find them! After tearing apart my scrapbook room i am happy to inform you that I did indeed finally hunt them down. Don't you just hate when you know you have something but you can not find it! The paper is by Little Yellow Bicycle and I also got the Chip-board butterflies from the Scrap Book Outlet.( K&Company) I used my new CTMH Scallop border punch and I added some flowers I got from Hobby Lobby on clearance after Easter. Thees are almost gone now. Well I really liked this layout and would have liked to make a couple smaller layouts for family but I did not have any more paper. I started looking at it and realized I could totally make my own with my CTMH stamps! Oh JOY!
 This is my 8 1/2 by 11 inch version and bellow is an 8 x 8 layout. on the bonus side I was able to fit the idea to both sizes. If I cut the 12 x 12 paper it would have cut off some of the design.
I was even able to find a stamp with the phrase Believe In Yourself. I used a bunch of different sets of stamps, but only one or two stamps from each one. Here is the list!
Life Is Tweet
Card Word puzzle
The best Things
Be True
Celebrate Life
Boutique Borders
Love Life
Unknown workshop which had the believe In Yourself phrase

So what do you think? Does it look similar to the first paper? Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

  1. Hi Brenda . Your layouts are pretty. Love your combinations of die cut edges and how you cocked and layered some of your background papers. Very nice ! Thank you for the comment you left on my blog as well. Hugs, Candy
