ACOT July 2020 Hop!

Welcome to the July 2020 A Cherry On Top Hop! This month our design team focused on the new Speckled Egg color released from Tim Holtz. Each of us have incorporated this spring-themed color into our creations! I chose to try out the Speckled Egg Distress Oxide on my layout along with Pinkfresh Studio’s Let’s Stay Home Collection.

To get started, I cut out the cover of the Pinkfresh collection and used that as the patterned paper backdrop. Using a Vicki Boutin stencil to create a background, then layering the sample cover on top! My photo sits on the top left corner with an ephemera title.

On a majority of the the leftover tiles, I added puffy stickers and ephemera to dress them up a little bit. It was a great way to use up these tiny frames from the ephemera pack, especially! After a few Nuvo Crystal drops around the embellishments, I added little bit of scattering and splattering around the edges finishes off the layout.

If you’d like to see this layout come together, I’ve included the process video below!

Be sure to hop along to the A Cherry On Top blog to finish off the hop. I hope you enjoy this spring hop, let me know what you think in the comments below. One randomly chosen commenter will win a $10.00 ACOT gift certificate.*

  2. Love, love, love it! What a gorgeous stenciled backdrop for your grid pattern! I’m seeing from the blog hop that this color coordinates with so many lines, so glad I picked up the oxide pad!
