I used my scrapbook stash today.  Do you remember this paper line from Rusty Pickle?  It is called Pirate Princess.  I used this paper originally for premade Halloween scrapbook layouts several years ago.  I think I may have over bought...maybe on purpose.  I love pink, black and white and there aren't alot of those colors together on paper anymore.  So happy I have lots of it ;- ) 

I used four AccuCut Craft dies to make this layout.  The pink carstock shape is the Antique 11.5" die  that has one side of it cut off.  This is one of my most used dies.  That shape is the base for many of my premade scrapbook pages.  I think I have cut, turned and flipped it every way possible.

The gray scalloped cardstock border is cut with the Border-Scallops-Small #2 die.  I have used this die so much that I really try not to use it on my own layouts unless I do something more with it such as stitching it in place or adding ribbon along the edge or in this case, adhering pretty pink flowers to it.  Wow, that is one long sentence!

I cut the white chipboard letters using the Believe Alphabet font, but I can't seem to find a link to it on AccuCut's website.  I painted the letters with white opal Liquid Pearls.  The photos doesn't show how pretty they are.

And my favorite element on the layout is the tiny envelope and card.  The envelope is from one of my newer dies, the Album HeartI cut the folded card to fit the envelope as I wanted a place to do hidden journaling.  I like to do hidden journaling on most of my layouts.  Not that I don't like my hand writing, I just like writing special notes about, or to the people in the photos.

Hope you have a great scrapping weekend.  And just in case you want to scraplift this layout.
