An AmberInk Layout

Hey there -

Yep, here I am, using my fantastic supplies from AmberInk to make a pretty little layout! Who says stamps and paper are just for cards? Not me!

Take a peek (sorry about the huge photo...too many details get lost otherwise):

First off, I have to give major credit to my fellow Torchbearer Julie for making an awesome card from iPaper printed on kraft -- what a genius idea! So...I copied it :) I printed a full 8.5x11 sheet of pretty blue Snowflake Lace iPaper on some PTI kraft cardstock, which makes a lovely heavyweight base for a layout.

I also printed the tag image from You're the Perfect Package, which makes a great spot for journalling! I inked it up with some distress ink and hit it with some glimmer mist before coloring the little gifty.

Can we talk about that photo for a sec? Isn't it beautiful? I noticed this view while I was lifting weights at the gym on Sunday, of all things. I used my favorite photo toy to take it: Hipstamatic (an app for the iPhone 4) -- it takes crisp, perfect digital images...and grunges them up  so they look old and awesome. Yes, I see the irony. No, I don't care -- the photos are awesome!

K, back to the layout. How about a detail?:

I finally gave in to the doily craze that's sweeping the paper nation -- mine is glimmer misted and topped with my title and photo and ribbons and all that good stuff.

Another detail, you say? Why not:

Some scraps of ribbon, plus a new SU! goodie (available in the occasions mini out next month). I also used eyelets on this layout -- yet another old supply made new again. They're backed with a bit more of the velvet ribbon. Here, you can also see that iPaper -- it really makes this whole layout work.

And since you can't see it super-well in the layout photo, here it is in person (added the text in Picnik -- the rest is unaltered):

Hope you are warm and cozy, wherever you may be.

Such a great marriage of every bit and bob! I really thought that was a vintage photo but how about that modern technology to make everything look old! There is that Kool ipaper on Kraft again and a doily! OMG! So much yet so not too much. Such a gift Angela Hath!

Awesome layout! You added so many wonderful details and the vintage feel resounds throughout! I am so in love with the snowflake hint iPaper on kraft.

Uhm, OMG! Ang, this is about as close to perfection as you can get!! I love everything about this layout from the snowflakes on kraft to the glimmered doily to the journaling, felt ribbon and fabric letters.

Love that photo and its hint of grunge! Great layout.

So cool! I love the soft colors of this layout.

Wow! This is so fabulous, Ang! I love the blue on kraft that echos your photo perfectly. I love all the little shabby chic touches--the doily, the ribbon, the rose. And now I must buy an iphone just so I can have that app because I WANT TO MARRY IT.
