12 x 12 Shadow Box Layout - 25th Anniversary Gift featuring Black Tie Affair with Ayumi

Hello BoBunny Friends!! It's Ayumi here.  

Welcome back to the BoBunny blog today! This time I'll share with you a blocking technique for featuring this new Black Tie Affair collection and the We R Memory Keepers Mini ABC Punch.  This is a Shadow Box Layout insert for her grandparents 25th Anniversary gift.

Beautiful by Ayumi Iwashita

First,  I picked the elements in the cut-outs that I wanted to use and arranged them in kind of a "Tic-Tac-Toe" pattern.  From here I mixed patterns, photos, phrases and frames strategically.  I cut thin strips of black and white striped paper, which works nicely to separate the squares, almost into their own little layouts! Looks stunning in our shadow box frame! This is the basic starting point: 


Here is a closer shot of the upper left corner, showing layers and detailing: 


. . . and the lower right corner to better see placement of the border stickers, jewels and Noteworty pieces.  Also, to cap off the edges of the page, I trimmed and placed a 1/2" frame from outside edge of the Sophistication 12 x12 paper. I felt like the black edge really tied it all together. 

Then, I embellished each of the nine sections, cutting out the frames for the small photos for a distinct layout with nice flow.  I used the Combo stickers, Noteworthy, and lots of Sticky Thumb dimensional foam dots so the black and white elements would really show up well in the shadow box. 

Also, used this very useful and versatile too, the We R Mini Alphabet Punch to make numbers.
This punch can also make alphabets, and also works well as a go-to corner rounding tool!

This is my first try with this tool and I'm excited to learn what other things I can can create!

Finally this project is finished!  Well, almost . . .  It just needed touches of shine and sparkle with jewels and layered chipboard. 

Thanks for stopping by and see you next time for more fun ideas, techniques and creative inspiration!.

Enjoy your happy day!
