Challenge # 8 ~ Fabric

One of the things I love to do to my layouts is add a little extra texture. One of the easiest ways to do this is to add some fabric. I have been known to collect pieces of fabric from my daughters clothes and even their toys. I have doilies that I have used on layouts and projects that my Grandmother left me.

On the following layout I used some sheer sparkle fabric that I saved from Paige's Cinderella doll. It is so delicate and pretty and I just knew I had to use it with the Crate papers. These papers are also so elegant and pretty. I used some of the add on Glitter Die Cuts. The flower die cut on the right actually hangs off of the edge but I lost some of it on the scan.

I used a great family photo a friends of mine took last fall. I loved how it seems perfect suited with the Crate and the fabric.

Challenge #8:

I would like to see you use some fabric on a layout or a card. Please email your creation to me at and put Scrapdango Blog Challenge in the subject line. You will earn a ballot for the Maya Mist Duo Pack.
