Frank Garcia Design Team Blog Hop!!


If you came here from  the very talented  Cari Fennells Blog, then you are on the right track!!  Welcome to the very first Frank Garcia Design Team Blog Hop!! This is a very exciting time for me, as I love everything that Frank has designed for Prima. I think I am not very good at Christmas layouts, but one look and feel of A Victorian Christmas and my hands just started creating!! This is the outcome. I wish you could see the glitter and sparkle in real life. Everything in this gorgeous collection is simply divine!


 The flowers are gorgeous!! With extra paper I had from cutting out the middle of my background paper, Le Sapin De Noel, I made some rolled roses and tucked them inbetween the flowers. 


Both corners use different flowers from a few packages of A Victorian Christmas Collection. My favorite are the green ones. I didn't even use leaves in my clusters because the green flowers were enough.


I edged the rolled roses using Color Bloom spray in Empress Gold. I also touched them with a bit of Diamond Stickles. 



I diecut the frame from corrugated cardboard and used the Color Bloom Spray in Empress Gold. Then I cut apart 1 piece of the Memory Hardware Cours Mirabeau Floral Lace , cut the one piece again into the individual tiny flowers and adhered them to the frame. Then I took the Memory Hardware Glass Pearls and adhered them over the little flowers creating my layered tint flowers. I placed that gold frame over another die cut that I covered with paper from A Victorian Christmas 6x6 paper pad to create dimension.

Here is a closeup or the frame. The glass pearls are gorgeous!!
 


I used the wonderful stickers from The Archivist Statement Stickers pad. So many words for so many different quotes and title you would like to create. I used the Gold Empress spray to color all of the exposed corrugated cardboard on my layout. I also used it  on all of the exposed edges of cardboard on each layer of  my matted photo.


Layering everything onto corrugated cardboard gives my layout loads of dimension. It also feels a bit rustic and vintage. I created 2 little scrolls from leftover paper, and tied them with twine. There are secret messages to my sweet little Charlotte.



Thank you so much for joining me today!!! Here is an awesome  giveaway!! Making an album would be so divine using these products from Franks new line.  Just follow the rules on Franks post to be eligible to win.
