Puttin on the Ritz

Hello paper people!
Jo here today to share with you a layout.  The Ritz collection is a fabulous collection for scrapping the men in our lives and this photo I had of my husband celebrating New Years Eve last year was the perfect photo to compliment this collection
I have used a couple of die on the right hand side of my photo and also an embossing folder for some texture on my page.
Here is a couple of close ups

I used both the 6 x 6 paper pad and the 12 x 12 paper pad for this layout.  Having the diecuts in the back was fantastic for embellishing my page.  The gold frames are also die cuts from the large paper pad.  I carefully cut the pictures out of the frames (save them for another project) and use the gold frames a decorative piece on my frame.  The top hat and clock is a stamps and emboss set.

Thanks so much for popping in.
Until next time

Male Cards with the Ritz

Hello crafters!  Thanks for joining me for another fun filled year of pretty paper!  It is an honour and very humbling to still be a part of this incredible team after so many years. 
So this month I have a couple of birthdays coming up.  Yep my beautiful middle child and my handsome husband!  Now most of you would know that I don't always do the masculine thing very well but having the new Ritz collection made it so easy.
Here are my cards

The gold foiling is a little hard to photograph but in real life looks fantastic
To make my cards I used the die cut pieces from the 12 x 12 Gatsby paper pad along with the papers from the 6 x 6 Evening Cocktail paper pad too.
I added a couple of dies from the collection and a chipboard piece and they came together relatively easy!
This paper line was so easy to create with for the men in our lives!
Here is a closer look at both of my cards

The gold foiling is a little hard to see but it just finishes the cards off.

Thanks so much for stopping by and all your lovely comments.  They are so very much appreciated.
Until next time
