Layering Urban Lily

Hello scrappers, I am Aida. How has your week been so far ?

Today the buzz words in scrapbooking are *texturing and layering*. Whenever you walk down scrapbook aisles you will see many embellishments in felt, softies or chipboards that it's become almost impossible to choose. So where does that leave Urban Lily ? This brand's strongest pluses are clean, popping gaphics of the paper designs, it's what we love. Keeping this in mind, I would like to show you how to pair Urban Lily with craft products like glitter cardstock and thin foam sheets to give textured layers to your projects.

For this mini-book project I used the chipboard Secret Keepers with the beautiful butterfly and flower shape. The chipboard pages were trimmed to create a layered mini book with pages in odd sizes to make it interesting. Next I traced the butterfly and flower onto glitter cardstock and cut the shapes out.

The butterfly and flower were matted to give it that extra definition as you can see below. Urban Cut words were used for the title of the album and I do LOVE my buttons !!!

Throughout the book I used hand trimmed bracket shapes of different sizes for accents.

In this layout, the pale blue of the flowers were accented with thin black foam. The Photo Card swirls were partially cut out and the photo inserted.
