Be Inspired #73

Who doesn't love Wednesdays??? We do at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! This week's challenge was to use the embossing/cracked technique on your project. I incorporated my Serendipity Scrapbooks March kit. It is sooooooooooo amaZing AND it includes EXCLUSIVE papers that coordinate with the BG Origins LINE! Kristen designed this Rooftop Garden Collection. I think she did it for me, since it is my dream to have a loft in the city with a HUGE rooftop garden. They are double sided and gorgeous!!


I cut out the flower from the doilie paper, layered it on some off white cardstock and then painted it with Shimmerz {from the kit}. And I cut this frame and emo

bossed with the Morocaan folder. LOVE that folder...I use it almost every time I scrap.


I embossed on some Core'dinations Cardstock on here, I love howyou can see the texture through the embossing...then I cracked {after putting it in the freezer} for an aged look. I thought that would be perfect for the pot base.











and on another fabulous note..............


PRIMA,PRIMA, PRIMA!
