Here is my project:

I had made the other side of this layout previously as my project for Connie Can Crop Design team, back in July.

Now I used this cute doll from The Paper Nest Dolls, our monthly sponsor. She is so cute, isn't it?

I used my iPad's cricut app to design this layout, similarly as I did the other side and cut it

in my Explorer. I used the Artbooking Cartridge (CTMH).

I design this project while waiting for my car at the dealer and it took me no time to cut it.

I used for the first time this chalk kit, i bought a while ago and fixed the shalked up doll using hairspray...

I want to add some pictures later, so I did this wonderful trick to momentarily stick all pieces and them I can just go back and peel off the tape backing and add the pictures behinds the grid and the frame...

I can add up to 4 pictures behind the grid or more if I add some smaller picks...

Other materials I used from my stash...

CMTH papers

Both layouts together:

  7. Awesome job! I love that it ties in with the other layout. And such a great idea with the tape. Thanks for joining in the hop. Scrappy hugs, Connie

  8. Love the layout. Quick and easy! Awesome.

  9. Very cool layout. So... what exactly is the trick to do the temporary? Please... do share! Thanks for hopping along.

    1. Ups, I forgot to mention it. I added small strips of scorch tape in top of the other one you see, that way I can glue frame temporarily to the page and when I am ready to add a picture, I just take the backing of the main tape off. (The temporary tape doesn't attached to the backing of the main tape as well as to the page, so it is easy to remove it). I hope I explained well :-)

  10. Love your completed layout Veronica!! All the detail is amazing!

  11. I love the doll and the design of your layout! I just became a new follower.
