I am going to share one thing from each of my Main kit layouts, a small detail that helped make the layout feel complete to me!!
I wanted this layout to scream LOVE!!  So I picked out all my favorite pieces with sayings from the pattern paper, die cuts and wood veneers and I layered them down the side of the layout!

I loved the double heart wood veneer, but I knew I wanted it to be two different colors!  So I just used painters tape (you could also use washi tape) and I taped off one heart and I embossed the other.  I repeated this process to do the other heart!

When I saw the paper with all the strips (WER Memory Keepers-Key To My Heart), I knew I wanted to cut it up and make a banner!  I cut the patterns I wanted to use, making sure they were different lengths and widths.  I folded those pieces in half and adhered them to a piece of twine!  I love how it looks on the layout!

For my background on this layout, I used a stencil and mist.  I wanted to add a small detail to draw your eye to the photo!  I also added a few splatters in different colors.

I am going to share with you the technique I used to create the background in my Caboose Junction layout!
Here are the supplies I used...
I punched a circle (you can use any shape) into a piece of scrap cardstock. A background stamp and ink.  I like to use the stamp in the circle because it gives me more control.  It bothers me when I use a background stamp (like the one you see in the picture) and the edge of the stamp shows up on my layout!  This technique eliminates that!
This is what it looks like after I have stamped using the circle as a stencil.
I added some mist, and my background is complete!

I am going to share a technique for making a fun pattern from striped pattern paper!!
I started with this paper...
I cut a strip with one black and one white stripe.  I cut that in half so I had two 6 inch strips.
I overlapped one of the strips on top of the other, creating a "V".
I cut my "V" in half.
This is what it will look like.  Repeat this process until you have enough to make your layout.
I layered mine over the gorgeous floral print paper!
