Good-bye my dearly beloved Burlap & Buttercups and a Momenta layout

Ok, I know this has been out there for a couple of weeks but I'm just now bringing myself to face reality. Rachel the owner of Burlap & Buttercups has closed the doors due to a much needed rest and to spend more time with her family. Which I completely understand and wish her all the best! I have had the best time being on the design team working with her and the rest of the girls on the design team!! They all are the BEST!

Now I want to share a layout that I recently made with some Momenta Let's Party papers and stickers. Last year my middle baby celebrated his 10th birthday. And his choice of restaurant.....Chuck E Cheese. Of course!! Lol!!

I love this page and wanted to emphasize the predesigned lines.  I used some Lemondrop and Carribean Twinery twine to glue down on top of the lines.

Even though I love how it turned out, you will have to forgive me for the messy glue look. Apparently I am using the wrong glue for this technique. If you have any suggestions, I would LOVE to hear what type of glue you have used!

I just love the colors and patterns in this collection. Perfect for all of the bright wonderful colors in those Chuck E. Cheese pics! I had to use this Make A Wish title sticker. I love how the orange outlining makes it look 3 dimensional!

Thanks for letting me share!

  1. i know whay you mean-- i am so going to miss B&B!! My local scrapbook store is also closing its doors- we found out 2 weekes ago- this is a place where i found scrapbooking 12 years ago and have visited and worked for all those years. i feel like i have lost 2 best friends. it is terrible. Now the nearest store to me is over an hour away. such a bummer!

    great layout!! sooo cute!

  2. B&B is definitely the hardest DT I have had to let go... Still very sad about it closing too... Your page on the contrary is very happy! :D I LOVE what you did with the twine!!! Love it!

  3. Sorry to hear about the closing. Love your layout--the twine treatment is awesome :)

  4. love this layout and the twine! Awesome! So sorry to hear about B & B. Have you tried Ranger Glossy Accents?

  5. Love the use of the twine. Haven't been as brave as you with it. What about Quick-dry.

  6. great job with the Momenta birthday page.. looks fun and bright with cool accents

  7. This is such an awesome lo! I love the way you used the twine, it totally pops on the page!! I have done something similar a couple times now on lo's and used a Zig glue pen. So far the twine has not popped off and you can't see the glue because it's thin, plus it's supposed to dry clear.
    I totally thought that title was 3D, that rocks!

  8. This is so incredibly adorable!! I just LOVE how you used the twine!! TFS!! Take Care!!
