Heat Winner

 At first glance the Kaiser Craft Check In collection is all about travel.  While they did a great job of making a travel collection this paper line is really very versatile.  With swim taking up 6 out of 7 days a week for us right now travel just wasn't at the front of my mind and I had a hard time designing pages about travel.  

Here is a lay out I designed for my daughter.  She won her first heat ribbon a few weeks ago and the pictures went beautifully with the black and red papers in this collection.  I added some Basic Grey papers to the mix and came up with this lay out.To embellish the lay out I cut the different patterned papers into flag and placed them down the left side of the lay out.

 I also made these little red "bubbles" or circles using a Tim Holtz stamp and heat embossed them with walnut stain Distress embossing powder.  I cut the circles apart and placed them around the layout using pop dots.  They add both dimension and texture to the layout.  They took up dead space in some of the images and worked to cover distracting elements of other images.
