Here is the layout I made using a flag:
flag layout-500
I know it isn’t a “FLAG” on my project but I wanted to do an interpretation of a “flag” for my layout. I used some beautiful shimmery paper from the Paper Temptress. My layout doesn’t have a bunch of Stickles and other “stuff” on it. The paper has such a nice appearance on its own :-)

paper close up for ptt-500
Here is a close up shot to try and show you how the blue, red and gold all have shimmer on them. The white is just a plain piece of white cardstock. You can hopefully see the reflection of the shimmer. It is really pretty in person.
skinny columns paper-500
Here is a close up shot of the background paper. I wanted to try and show you how much texture it has. It is the 12 x 12 Skinny Columns paper from Paper Temptress. Again, it is so pretty all on its own. It’s just hard to capture it in a photograph.

  1. Adorable layout! You are right, that shimmer paper never photographs as nice as it is in person, but your close up does capture it much better. TFS! :)Amy
