Fontastic Layouts With My Pazzles

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA
Hello crafty friends, 
Today is my turn to share at Pazzles. I am sharing a fun set of layouts using something we all have...FONTS. With so many free font sites and options, you can really express your creative style!
Here are the layouts I created:

Here’s a look at the completed layout.

I started with my Pazzles software and created the word background. I cut it out on some black cardstock. I popped all the letters out and made sure to edit letters like "a" and "o" so that they wouldn't have any pieces "falling out" of the template.

I then used the template as a mask and sponged some chocolate ink on the pink cardstock. I loved that it gave it a vintage look.

I then took a flower stamp from the Pick a Posey Stamp Set and the same chocolate ink and inked around the layout. I matted that onto a kraft cardstock base that also had a pretty piece of patterned paper from the Hobby Lobby Paper Studio Kellerkurtz & Company Stack.

I used my sewing machine to stitch around the pink paper with some black thread.

I then used a couple of files from the craft room to create the flourished photo corners. I cut those out of black cardstock.

I added some ribbon from May Arts and a couple of chipboard embellishments I had in my stash and all done. It wasn't too hard to do, and I let the wording of the template and the photo take center stage.

Here is a closer look at the chipboard elements.

One more chipboard element and a couple of brass brads.

For the second layout, I decided to use the same word background template I had created. I chose some fun graphic style paper from the DCWV The Homeroom Stack for the dotted paper as well as the yellow graphic paper. I used the very same template. Because it was in black the ink from the previous project did not stain the paper and it was good to go.

I found the cute heart house file in the craft room and welded it to the title I created.  I finished off the little heart by wrapping it with some silver metallic twine and a silver sequins

I added the Family and Ties fonts and welded it all together.

Here are a few silver sequins for an added touch.
