You are Priceless to Us Layout {for 3 Scrappy Boys Kit Club using Jenni Bowlin Magpie}

For the April Reveal I created six layouts with the
 trio kit you can see HERE.  I showed you the first
one on Wednesday HERE then I took a bit of a
 break - sorry about that!!  Here is the 2nd layout -
 "You are Priceless to Us" using the gorgeous
new Jenni Bowlin "Magpie" papers.

I decided on the title based on the paper, which is a
Vintage-inspired Bank/Accounting paper, so the title
"You are Priceless to us" I thought was very fitting.

I inked the edges of the "bank paper"with pink,
then adhered it to the green cardstock, which  I
 first added some stencilling to using the new
 Crafter's Workshop Reverse Chicken wire stencil, 
which works so well with the hexagon design in the
Magpie Collection printed papers .

I also used the stencil on the bank paper, aswell as a 
Heidi Swapp Spotted stencil too (using Color Box 
Creamy Brown ink).  I stamped using an AWESOME
new Kadomo Ink stamp I bought off Etsy. (made in 
Japan - out of rubber & mounted on wood - so much
 more preferable to acrylic unmounted stamps I think).

I inked the papers and layered them up, together with a 
Seven Gypsies tag insert (with the letters A - D on it),
then added my title using the AWESOME Prima alphas.

I inked the plastic tape measure provided, using Creamy Brown,
 to age it a bit, added some of the gorgeous Bella! Bling, and
 created an embellishment using a doily from my own stash, 
together with a repeat of the doily design, stamped onto 
cardstock, then raised up on 3D tape, with the
 BEAUTIFUL Maya Road burlap flower finishing it off!

I hand-journaled my message & inked up the 
Maya Road wooden butterflies then varnished
 them with my glittery nail-varnish!  You can
see, in the photo below, that I varied the pressure
so that the butterflies were each slightly different.

Lastly I added some of my own bling to enhance
the diagonal flow of the design and reinforce the
"Priceless" theme!  

I loved working with these papers & loved the mix
of Maya Road with them.  Maya Road have some
amazing new product this season!!
