A few techniques were used here....first I needed to make the shadow box, this is actually 5 layers of cardstock (bamboo) cut strategically to make a shadow box....the top layer was embossed with cocoa embossing powder using the wood grain stamp from the set D1477 Universal Backgrounds, then I filled in the non-embossed parts with cocoa ink and then layering all the pieces together. For the title "Family Values" I did just about the same. I cut out the letters with the Cricut AP cartridge ( 5 layers), adhered the layers together, distressed the edges and inked them. Next I cut out pieces of chipboard for each letter, distressed, inked and glued the letters to the chipboard to make the printer's block affect.
For the black and white photos, I colored sections with a variety of markers to give them color. Love this technique.

I totally love how these titles came out! I wanted to show how you could use CTMH products to make products like others on the market, totally, thinking outside of the box!
This was a total accident...I wanted crayons on my layout and the best things that happen to my layouts are always accidents, i just rolled paper and cardstock to make these really cute trinkets.
