Leaky Shed bird cage chippy with Maggi

Happy New Year everyone!!  Maggi here to share two of my favorite things; well really, make that 3 of my favorite things!

1.  Leaky Shed's birdcage chippy
2.  Marion Smith Designs Garment District paper collection
3.  My beautiful and ever so sweet spoo, Nika!

 I've covered the beautiful birdcage with Stampendous aged ivory embossing powder.  I love the look these powders give to chipboard.
I know, I use these embossing powders all the time! 

Here is the Leaky Shed birdcage complemented with flowers and greenery and a resin bird, of course!

I like to give my layouts dimension so I often pop up my layers.  In the next two photos you can see how I've popped up the layers by using thick cardboard on the first layer and much thinner cardboard on the next layers.  Cardboard is great for popping up your layers as you don't have to worry about the sag  that you sometimes get when you use  foam tape or pop dots.
