Welcome to the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! I hope you'll be inspired to craft as you make your way through the 20 blogs of the design team members and participate in each of the challenges!

MY CHALLENGE: Fussy cut patterned papers and add the pieces to your layout!
YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE

Journaling says: Allie asked for a kiss from Fox.

How to: Punch a scalloped border on the top left and bottom right corners of an aqua chevron striped paper background. Dip a toothbrush in bookbinding glue, dilute it with water, then splash it across the layout from the top left to bottom right corner. Sprinkle gold glitter of the glue and shake the excess back into the container. Splatter gold spray mist over the drying glue as well then let it dry. While the layout is drying, cut out flowers from patterned paper. Adhere two photos on the center of the layout and tuck the flowers underneath. Make a title in the center with mini alphabet stickers and gold foil Thickers. Add a canvas bow above the title. Stamp the date on the bottom edge of the bottom photo and write a caption below with a gold marker. Place heart and flower stickers as well as brads around the fussy cut flowers. Tuck a piece of gold polka dot vellum and a cream scalloped border sticker under the outer edges of the photos to finish.

Supplies: Patterned paper, patterned vellum, brads (epoxy, fabric), canvas bow, stickers (flowers, hearts, letters, mini alphabet, scalloped borders), date stamp, adhesive: American Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Glitter: Martha Stewart Crafts; Ink: StazOn; Bookbinding glue: Paper Source; Scalloped border punch: EK Success; Marker: Sharpie
