Going Green

Being the slow scrapper that I am, I FINALLY scrapped my memorial page for Cali, our little kitty who passed a year ago.

I've had this layout planned in my head for a year. I went green with this one, and not just with the background cardstock. I am on a "keep it simple" and "keep it cheap" kick these days. I wanted to dry emboss the green cardstock on each side of the layout, but I didn't have any heart stencils or templates to emboss with. And, well, my heart was set on hearts. So.......I used my Fiskars USX with a rectangle template, and cut a piece of green cardstock right out of the middle of my background page.

This, of course, was later covered with blue cardstock. From my cut piece of green cardstock, I punched out hearts and placed them against the green cardstock. Instant faux embossing!
