Together Time with Chic Tags

Today is a good day. I'm sharing my first tutorial on the Chic Tags blog. I decided to embelish the journaling card using DMC floss. It's a quick way to add a fun detail to an already fabulous card. All the details on my process is on the Chic Tag blog, I hope you'll stop by.  


Another fun technique that I used on this layout is layering masks, first I used the Prima polka dot 12x12 mask with gold Mister Huey mist. Once that was dried I used a portion of the Jillibean Soup placemat with dewey Mister Huey mist. I really like the subtle, yet fun effect this creates. 

I paired the Chic Tags with Crate Paper's On Trend collection. I recently found a small paper pad at Winners and boy was I happy to come across this treasure. I've been on the hunt for this collection for a long time, I was happy to finally have it.
