A layout with our Iron Leaf Corner

Hi everyone, Maggi here.  Ahhhh, Christmas has come and gone.  I love Christmas so much, yet I'm always glad when its over.  Now its time to take all the decorations down.  Ugh, I don't like that part of Christmas at all!

Well, instead of cleaning up all the Christmas mess, I decided it was time to have some fun doing something completely unrelated to the holidays and for me that usually means digging into my Graphic 45 stash.  I used the G45 Couture collection which has images that really remind me of the art deco age and I thought it would go perfectly with our Iron Leaf Corner which also looks very art deco to me.

I am a scrapper that has a really hard time leaving blank space on a layout.  I definitely subscribe to the more is better theory!  So, I just love corner chippies, they are great for filling in space.  I love the detail etching in our Iron Leaf Corner so I chose to just mist the corner with Lindy's Golden Lump O' Coal which gave the chippy a lovely golden black shine and did not cover up the beautiful etching.

 I made the flowers using Sizzix's Tattered Floral die and I  rolled the small roses that I diecut with a La La Land die. 

I fussy cut some roses and leaves from the Couture collection and then I used Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose stamp to make more leaves that would look like the collection leaves.

On the right you can see a couple of the Bella Rose stamped leaves, they do look alot like the ones I fussy cut in the photo above don't they?

Really just a few layers of paper, some fussy cutting, a great piece of chipboard, and voila, a fun layout!

  Graphic45 Couture 12 x 12 and  6 x6 paper pads 
 Alterations Tattered Floral, La la Land rolled roses,
