Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you came here from Lisa’s blog, you are in the right place. If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.
You may have noticed the theme for this hop is Go Green. So, the design team is sharing nature and conservation themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. My family and I went to Hawai’i recently and I was so happy to see all the different ways they care for the earth (and the oceans.) So here is my first layout from my trip:
For the super fun sun, I used Cool Sun Cutting Files. He looks pretty awesome with dimension from the rays to the face and then from the face to the sunglasses. Don’t you think?
I used the new and awesome Reduce Reuse Recycle Cutting Files because recycling makes me so happy! Added some dimension to the band going around the lid. I also went with a general recycling symbol rather than specific. I love the details in the arrows with the gray layer!
And I used the hibiscus from the Aloha Cutting Files which is so pretty!
I used gelatos to color the pink/red die cuts on my page and Flower Soft to give the hibiscus a little dimension and detail. Thanks so much for checking out my page!
