First Design Team Post!

Hi everyone! :)

Brooke here, and can I just say how excited I am to be posting for the first time on this blog?!

When I received my package of Robin's Nest goodies in the mail this week, I could not wait to dive in and get creating. They make such beautiful papers (some with GLITTER on them!!), rubons, DEW DROPS, etc! Love it all. :)

This week I made a scrapbook layout to share with you.

My #1 scrapbooking technique is layering. No page is complete without a few layers!
First, I started off with an Instagram picture. I added a bit of machine stitching to the top of the picture  for some added texture then added a bit of gold glitter to the edges. Behind the the picture I layered some white tissue paper, (just generic dollar store stuff) 2 paper strips, and a piece of Robin's Nest smoke cardstock.

The arrow paper pieces were made by cutting diagonal lines into a beautiful aqua piece of Robin's Nest paper.

I added gold paint splatters to the cardstock background, a strip of vintage lace at the bottom of the page, and one of the Robin's Nest rubons in the bottom lefthand corner. 

I love LOVE dew drops! Where have they been all my life?? They are an amazing, versatile scrapbooking embellishment and I have been using them on EVERYTHING. Plus, the dew dew glue makes it so easy to apply them.

I handmade the white flower using Sculpey clay. 

Close-up shot of the simple layers. I love that Robin's Nest offers so many papers that have glitter on them! 
I loved working with these products and can't wait to keep creating things to share with you!
