Hi, it’s Connie Nichol here today with a scrapbook layout I created using the November sketch from the Canadian Scrapbooker sketchy challenge  and some of the new Creative Memories products.    A couple of years ago I participated in a hummingbird photography workshop in British Columbia.   It was an absolutely amazing experience and I have enough hummingbird photographs to last me several lifetimes.

I used patterned paper from the Creative Memories ‘Brights’ designer paper pack and the Bubbles Border Maker to dress up my paper edges a little bit.  The Creative Memories Border Maker System is very unique – you slide your paper into a positioning guide where it is firmly held by a magnet and then you move a punch cartridge stepwise down the paper edge.  The cartridges are interchangeable so you can easily swap out different cartridges for different borders.

To make my picture pop, I used dimensional foam adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  I used one layer of foam adhesive for the triangle of patterned paper, and then doubled the layers of foam adhesive for the photograph.  It’s a little thing but it makes a difference.

For my flower and vine embellishment, I used this Bigz die from Sizzix.  A die like this is so versatile – you can add extra leaves, flowers and vines to customize your layout until it’s exactly how you like it.

Layout Supplies:  Creative Memories patterned paper and border punch system, Core’ dinations ColorCore  cardstock, Fancy Pants chipboard letters, Sizzix Big Shot and die, Brother sewing machine, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

    Awesome PHOTO!!! And I love how you worked the sketch. The matted triangles and the border punched pieces really pump this LO up a notch: or TWO!
