Frank Garcia Design Team Blog Hop!



Hello friends! 
Welcome to the Frank Garcia Design Team blog hop!

Today-I am sharing a layout I created, along with a set of tags using Frank's "A Victorian Christmas" collection, plus other goodies from his memory Hardware collection too! 



I just love this photo of Matt and Dawn (my brother and sister in law)-this was one of their engagement photos from last December. Aren't they cute? The chipboard accents, lush flowers, pearls and papers made this Christmas layout shine! I added splatters of paint and Color Bloom spray to add interest and texture to the background



See the details in this close up photo, where I layered all of the elements within my clusters. The snowflakes were punched from one of the papers and tucked in to the flowers. I love sprinkling the pearls from the Memory Hardware collection within my design for shine and dimension.  Have fun with your embellishments!



I created this set of cards and tag using the leftovers from my layout. The chipboard pieces and designs on the papers are perfect for small sized projects like these. Again, I used the chalkboard paints for the splatter effects and just had fun with the embellishments. These are almost too cute to giveaway. 





To win this fabulous prize, please comment on the blog hop posts and follow each blog! Frank will announce the winner on his blog. Have fun and enjoy the eye candy as you visit each blog. The projects are truly inspiring! Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
