Puppy love again with the Chomas Creations engraving tip

Being this weekend we are celebrating my Ella's 7th birthday, I figured I would offer a coupon code to the Chomas Creations store!  Enter ella7 at checkout to save 10% off your entire purchase!!!  Happy Birthday Ella!  Mommy loves you!

Some of you may think this layout looks a bit similar.  Well I decided to recycle a file I've already done, and use it in a girly way instead of for a boy this time!  You can see the original puppy love, as well as get the download here... puppy love layout

One of the things I've done for years with my background paper, is to remove part of it behind my pictures to conserve paper, and even to use for a matching title!  With the Core'dinations cardstock, one side is brown or black, and the other is a color.  So when I use the Chomas Creations engraving tip to etch in the Core'dinations, I can use the colored backside to match perfectly!  This is easier then you think!  First I place my pictures where they will be on my layout, and mark with a colored pen behind them so I know where to cut!
Then with my Fiskars trimmer, I know exactly where to cut to remove that paper.  The backside of this is pink and I used it to cut my title.  The Fiskars works best for this because of how you can position your blade in the middle of the paper.
As I have said already, I used the Chomas Creations engraving tip to get this look on Core'dinations cardstock.  I then lightly sanded the whole background sheet to really make the bones POP!
I used Doodletype for the title.  THe title is also include in the puppy love download.

I always have these journaling circles laying around that have been done with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder for some quick journaling.
Here is the finished layout with my girl and her (well my hehe) new puppy!  She is in love!
