It's All In the Details: January

Let's take one more look at the January kits before they get into your hands... yes, I'm teasing you.  A little.  Like these details!  Little touches here and there that add up to make great layouts.  Enjoy!

Aphra created simple flowers that are absolutely beautiful.  Paper, button, twine... that's all you need!  Die cut, punch, or free-hand the petals, crease them, and assemble.  Instant bouquet!
Beth distressed her cardstock & alphas - this is a great way to add a unifying color (white in this case) to your elements.
Jenny added a nice embellie cluster to her layout - and then kicked it all up a notch by adding white ink dots around the whole thing.  The ink acts as another visual layer - but without the extra bulk.
Melanie's got great details here... tiny staple, cluster of flowers, black ink line, inked banners.  The next time you think your layout is missing something, try adding one - or all - of these things!
My title tag became a great little focal piece.  Little bits of the rest of the kit coordinated with the rest of the layout... and the white space kept it from getting "lost" in the background paper.
Aphra ran short of embellishments - so she made her own!  Die cuts from coordinating paper topped with some eye candy add a lot to this layout.
Beth chose the perfect mist for this layout.  It's kinda grey, kinda blue... maybe green?  Doesn't really matter, since it would coordinate well with any of those colors - just like it does here.
Melanie uses the seriously adorable staples again - to attach this seriously adorable fabric tag.  It's not quite squared up to the rest of the layout, which catches the eye.  Clever!
I distressed my photos and paper to bring more white - and a snowy look - to my layout.  And if your paper has great border details, you can showcase them under a peek-a-boo flap.
