Every city has a story

Hello everyone,

I'd like to share a layout with you today I made with the wonderful Dear Lizzy Saturday Collection. 

I knew, I wanted to use the 'every city has a story' card from the cut apart sheet on this layout. I gathered some papers and embellishments that coordinate with the card and started the layout without the picture, which is very unusual for me. 

We went on a short trip to Helsinki recently and I wanted to use a selfie we had taken but had some issues with getting the picture off my phone and printing it. 
I layered the papers and some of the die cuts, put the title on the page and when I finally had my picture printed I added it to the layout, adapted some things and finished it up with some puffy stickers and stickers. I put some of the embellishments on fun foam and pop dots to add more dimension to the layout.

I really love the Saturday collection, it's perfect for scrapbooking city pictures. I hope, I have inspired you do do some pretty things with this collection. You can find it overhere in the Paper Issues store, use code Melanie to get 20% off. 

Have fun creating.
