Emboss your title and make your layout shine!

Hey there!

How are you today? Have you been busy scrapping this weekend? I was teaching last weekend and it's been so much fun!

Today, I would like to inspire you to both use paper stars as embellishments and create your own alphas with dies AND embossing!

First of all, these are what you'll need to create this layout :

First of all, cut your white ledger paper a little smaller and glue it on top of your yellow background paper.

Add some tiny red splashes here and there.

Start adding your photos and layer some paper and fabric adhesive papers on your background.

Then, cut some stars into the same patterned papers and mount them on your layout with 3D foam tabs.


My title was first cut using an old alpha set I had - you can easily use these following alpha sets for your title : XL Alpha Die set Word Play (657837), the Strip alpha set Inside Out (657827) or the Alphabet Set 7 dies Serif Essentials (655128).

Once your whole title is cut, emboss each letter (you can put a lot of letters inside one embossing plate, repeat if needed, in case your title is very long) with your big shot. Here, I used the Dots embossing folder from the Christmas Words and Dot set.

Add some stamps here and there...

Don't forget some sewing here and there!

And finish your layout by mixing your title with cut and foam alphas!

Hope this inspired you!
Have a great day!
