Memories from Wrexham by Gerry

Hello Sizzix friends!

Today's project is about me :-)
I don't know about you but I often take selfies so I can share them online.
This photo is one of my favourite selfies and a special one because it was
taken in Wrexham when I visited for the first time Sizzix Europe headquarters.
And of course for my favourite photo I had to use my favourite Sizzix products!

As a base for my A4 layout I used the cardboard back of our old family agenda - 
yes, I never throw cardboard! You can use it in various ways. 
657900 Sizzix Big Shot Machine
659573 Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die Spring Greenery
658711 Sizzix Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die Ironwork Gate
656938 Sizzix Movers & Shapers L Die Tag & Bookplate 
659127 Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Frame Layers & Flower #2

Love how the Spring Greenery branches match 
the fussy cut branches from the pattern paper.

I used the small die-cut circles from the Tag & Bookplate to decorate
all over the layout - I simply die cut them in different colours and 
adhered them on my project.

I cut two small ends of the Ironwork Gate and coloured them in black.
Then I glued them on top of the other ends - 
in this way I wanted to have more contrast and also
to match the rest of the "blacks" on the layout.

I die cut the doily by using two different pattern papers.
One of the pattern papers I used for the doily itself and 
the circle where I stamped the quote.
From the black pattern paper I used only the circle for the layout.
I cut into two and used half underneath the other as a shadow.

Other Products I used:
Webster's Pages Pattern Paper
Stamps - Donna Downey, Pink Paisley, Prima Marketing
A fussy cut bird - Prima Marketing pattern paper

I hope you enjoyed my project today!
Have a creative Sunday!
