American Crafts layouts by Cathy

Cathy has created these fab layouts using AC Amplified papers, we love the way she customised her Thickers for the Trendy Boots layout:

Trendy Boots:
For this layout I used the scalloped edge of the ‘Dancing Queen’ paper, a strip of ‘Boogie’ & some of the ‘Punk Rock’ which I thought complimented my photo perfectly. I handcut a few of the shapes from the P-Funk paper & layered them with 3D foam to pretty up the corner of the journalling block. The Cream Soda Foam Thickers that I had for my title weren’t quite the right shade so I thought I would experiment a little – I inked them up to take them a few shades darker & sprinkled on some clear embossing powder, with heat gun in hand I admit to being a bit weary, (at first thinking they would just shrivel up) but I had no need to worry, they turned out perfect! Thickers are even ‘more’ versitile than I thought and I for one will be trying a few more techniques with them very soon!

First Anniverary:
I wanted this page to have quite a simple background so I could ‘showcase’ the handcut flowers. The paper is foiled & is beautiful in real life.
I started off by matting my photo onto a strip of ‘Boogie’ paper which was cut the same width, I then cut out the 2 largest flowers with stems from ‘The Hustle’ sheet and stuck them flat to the page, next I cut the smaller flower heads & layered them on top using 3D pads for definition. My title is made up of ‘Jewelry Box’ thickers & Adornit tiny letters, the heart is from a punch.
