School Pictures

I made this page for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesdays Challenge. The challenge was to cut out and pop up our images. I used Fantasy Floral Garden and cut out and popped up the flowers, in addition to embossing a border along the left side of the page.

Here's another reminder not to hoard!! Did you know that Thickers lose their stickiness? I think these Thickers are three years old, and I had to glue them down with Diamond Glaze. I wonder what this means for everyone who actually used theirs three years ago. Have they come unstuck from everyone's layouts?

Have you tried American Crafts Zing embossing powder? I have two colors, and I love them both!! I used blue and blush. One of the cool things about it is that the label on the top of the jar is the exact shade you'll get when you emboss. I embossed the chipboard flourish for a little extra richness. The blue is metallic, but the blush is not. You can get Zing embossing powders at Creative Play Stamps.

Also, did you notice my beautiful new Prima Gallery Roses? If you love Primas as much as I do, check out CPS, they have a HUGE collection of Primas!!

Awesome layout my friend! And your kiddo's are real "cutie patooties"!
Since I don't even know what THICKERS are .. I guess I don't have to worry about that helpful hint ... but it was certainly good of you to let everyone know!

hey carla, where do you store your supplies? You mentioned your rub-ons cracking and I've have some for ages that are fine and the stickers not being sticky anymore, I wonder if it was due to the dry OK weather? Up in maine it is very , well, damp most of the time and my stuff stays good for ages as long as nothing freezes, maybe your moves and climate have to do with youe supplies shelf like....or maybe I need an excuse to hoard! LOL!
