Little Toot: Great for Road Trips!

Happy Friday! I'm looking forward to the weekend! So it's the perfect time to show how the Kaisercraft Little Toot collection is also perfect for vacations and road trips!

I used a combination of Honk and Bang pattern papers to create this layout featuring a recent road trip, where we took the scenic route around the Hudson Valley area in upstate New York. The different winds and scenes on the road reminded me of the pattern on Honk which perfectly compliment the layout.

I used a craft knife to carefully cut the road and pond out, layering it on top of a dome-trimmed Bang pattern paper, and further layering a rounded-corner photo of the Hudson Valley. To embellish, I layered a smaller photo (shaped by the road) with foam squares to add dimension, punched a border from Bang pattern paper to mimic washi tape, added a hot air balloon Layered Printed Chipboard, wrote on a snip of journaling tag, and added sparkle with Stickles to various graphics on the layout.

Materials Used: Kaisercraft Little Toot Honk (P686), Bang (P687), Layered Printed Chipboard (CB130); Chipboard Letters (CB107); Acrylic Paint in Deep Yellow (KC006); Others: Fiskars craft knife, EK Success corner punch, Martha Stewart border punch, Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock, Stickles

Isn't the Little Toot collection so versatile? And, more Blae & Ivy creations later this week!
