We Are Fans

My hubby and I are huge NHL fans, especially when it comes to our home team, the Winnipeg Jets.  This year marks the first year since their return to the city 4 years ago that they made the playoffs.  Needless to say it was a big deal for the city.  We were lucky enough to secure tickets to the 2nd home playoff game, so of course the event called for some staged photos and a layout.

The Paper Camellia May Add On kit if full of the fun and playful Amy Tangerine & Elle's Studio papers and embellishments, I decided that I wanted to mix as many elements together as possible to create a quick and eye catching layout.
 I hand cut some of the Amy Tangerine clear stickers and backed them with some smooth white cardstock to help them stand out from the fabulous woodgrain background.

 I then took the fun Fancy Pants Designs alphabets, and chalked up the edges a bit with some Tim Holtz ink, and a blending tool, then popped a couple of them off the page using 3D foam adhesive.  I like a big bold title, from time to time.

And those tear strips from the bottom of some 12x12 sheets are fantastic to use as embellishments.  I rarely throw mine away, and try hard to incorporate them into my projects.  I think of it as getting 2 for 1.

How have you been using your May kit?  Would love to see your creations in the Paper Camellia Gallery.

You can see all this Add On kit, and all the May kits still available here in the Paper Camellia store.  And don't forget about the May sketch.  Play along for your chance to win a gift certificate to the store.

Thanks for stopping by today friends!
