Here are a couple of 8x8 layouts:
I started with some gorgeous Fancy Pants paper from the 50 piece Grab Bag as the background and extra piece of green behind my photo, I then stitched down a large photo leaving the top unstitched to act as a pocket for some smaller photos.. This is a GREAT way to include TONS of photos without cluttering up a layout.
I used some things I just had laying around; EP sticker, random satin ribbon I dyed myself, black pen, bingo card, and a 7gypsies punch. I'm a total distress freak so I of course used the Distress Inks by TH, and I LOOOOOVE the Art Blanche chipboard letters! They're large, white and easy to make your own! I also have to tell you, these gals have such a fantastic deal on these EK Adhesive dispensers that I haven't used any other kind in MONTHS. lol.
I again used some of that awesome Fancy Pants paper, distress ink and I used a Cosmo Cricket Rubon.
Other products used: don juan cricut cartridge, corrugated cardboard, raffia, fiber, lace, vintage paper measuring tape, ball point pen, martha stewart butterfly punch, old book, nest image and swallow chipboard piece. And I'm seriously telling you.. check out the great deals they have on all of their adhesives (as well as EVERYTHING else they have for sale!)
