If the cup fits...

Hi there!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. So are you feeling rejuvenated and ready to papercraft your way through 2013? This is my first project of the new year, may it be the first of many!

I LOVE hot chocolate, but it has to have all the trimmings or it just isn't the same, and that includes a pretty cup to drink it out of! For the base of the layout I used ILS 'pops of #3' paper and a strip of AC 'cozy court' along the bottom. I stippled blue distress ink over a chevron mask and spattered brown ink over the stippled areas.

The clouds are die cut out of 'cozy court' and punched with a little star so that you can see a glimpse of PP underneath, they have been raised on pop dots for a little dimension. You can also see I've used little dots of perfect pearls here and there for an extra touch of sugar!

I used glitter foam to make brackets to frame my photo and for my title. Whether you're using a die cutter of craft knife, this foam cuts like butter! You can see also how I added a little touch of scrapping floss and a few sequins.

Here's a closer look at the title and you can just see the star embellishment with a diamante flat back in the centre. You can also see all those layers, lol!

The sketch is taken from ILS

So, I hope this layout hits your hot spot and I will be back with another page soon, Happy Scrapping!
