Want it Win it Wednesday and Layout

I won some Curiosity Corner papers off the Trimcraft website last week and decided to share this layout. hold a weekly competition where you leave a comment about what product you would like to win.

 this is an old photo of my mum on holiday at Tenby, she was around 10 years old. I found the papers matched the muted tones perfectly.

 I created a pocket to find the journaling, I like to add interactive elements when possible as it makes it a bit more fun. I created the tag by cutting out one of the shapes printed on the paper itself, I added a tab and stamped pull on to it. to make the pocket I taped around the tag so it wouldn't fall inside.

 I have been experimenting with heat embossing and will share some techniques in my next tutorial.

I made my own enamel dots by following this tutorial heat the oven first and melt the beads at 220 degrees for 12 minutes it varies depending on what beads you are using but I could only get this to work with pony beads.
