Gotta Love Hemp!

Want a different look with hemp? Just tie it in a knot then fray the edges! How simple is that? I LOVE using hemp on my cards...the texture is fabulous, it's so easy to use, and hemp is super inexpensive!

My Peeps Layout

I love this layout! I really liked the polaroid look of the pictures to give the layout a fun personality. To recreate this look, add a horizontal text box across the bottom of each photo mat and click on the color picker to make it white, just like the photo mat. That's it! Simple! {Helpful tip: Get a shadow on the polaroid portion to make it look dimensional by making sure the "text box" you added overlaps the photo.}
