A new badge and a layout to share

It's now official: I'm part of The Studio Challenges DT :-)

My first reveal will be on Sunday February 3rd, and I promise you - we have lots and lots off different, fun and inspiring  challenges coming up in the future! So pay the The Studio Challenges blog a visit, have a look at the previous challenges, and don't forget to follow us so you don't miss any of the fun!


And I finally have a layout to share:

Patterned papers: Crate Papers (backgruond paper), Sassafras lass (heart paper), MME (other papers)
Chipboards: Maya Road (snowflakes), Imaginarium Designs (swirls). Alpha: Cosmo Cricket
Diamond shape stamp, embossing powder, buttons, dotted washi tape, snowflake brads: unknown

I pulled out an old stamp with diamond shapes on and wet embossed the pattern. I haven't embossed on pages in ages, but obviously I hadn't forgotten how to do it. I often use my chipboard raw, or paint it, but this time embossing them gave the perfect look for my theme

Some close up photos:

The diamond shapes are made with a stamp and embossing powder, the swirl is embossed, too

Circular chipboard covered with dotted washi.

I found inspiration for this layout in CSI Case File #55:

How I solved the case:
Colors: All colors used + neutral background
Evidence: Diamond chapes + circles
Testimony: Journalling six interesting things about my subject (you will see this option on the CSI blog)

The photo of DS10 is taken during a break while skiing in the Norwgegian ski resort Kongsberg, and my journaling is about skiing and the resort itself.

So I pulled out old stamps and my embossing powder - something I haven't done in ages. Have you done something "old" lately?
