Emma & Natalie **CHATTERBOX**

As the last day of our Chatterbox spotlight comes to an end, we have 2 layouts to share for our farewell. First comes Emma with a lovely piece, utilizing another brand's diecut paper shape as a template. Then we have Natalie's layout, which is mostly Chatterbox, but is also partially made with materials from our next spotlight...Making Memories! Drop by tomorrow to see our the start of our new spotlight of Making Memories. We'll have some new product and some old (because we know you have stuff stashed away for a rainy day!) to help get your creativity flowing.

Cut a sheet of “Scroll Woods” to 8.5” x 11”. Trace and cut around the fancy edge of a shaped paper onto “swimming pool filigree and stick onto the base paper.
Cut a film strip and stick on photos. Behind this, stick a circle cut from “Wood Branches”. Mark the position of this on the layout, then dry brush cream acrylic paint directly onto the layout. When dry, glue the film strip into position. Add mesh to side of film strip.
Using the doodle template, mark dots of the small circle around the middle photo then add gems to dots. Then draw in black pen a circle of dots around the “wood branches” circle and fill in in white pen.
Glue ribbons across the centre of layout and add lengths of thin string. Add crotched circle, sheer ribbon bow and brad.
Tear a strip of “Scroll Woods” add to the right of layout and finish with the velvet ribbon.
Cut flowers and leaves from “Woods Blossom” and “Full Bloom” and layer on layout. I used foam pads on some to add texture. Use the “Breezy” doodling template to trace then cuts swirls from the “Flutter Woods” paper and add to layout.
Add the title and a tag decorated with more leaves.
