Work that Title & Go Large for 2017!

Hi Paper Issues Friends & Fans!

Amanda here, and I am super-dee-duper excited to be hosting our newest monthly challenge, 
Working Title.
This challenge is all about those project titles
 & for our first challenge, 
I am asking you to Go LARGE for 2017!!!
The BIGGER your title, the BETTER!

*As an optional extra, you can challenge yourself more by focusing on 2017, the New Year, resolutions, hopes, dreams or your future plans * 

One of my goals for this year is to tell more of my story too! 
I am always scrapbooking my beautiful family, but never myself. 
So with that in mind, here's my take on this fun new challenge....


Soft, delicate, feminine and pretty - this page is definitely all about me!
And how about my LARGE title?!! 
I have used a Free Cut File from the Paper Issues store 
(it's coming to the store next week - so keep your eyes open for it!)
I simply enlarged the file, and voila! One instant, large title!

I have use the stunning Pink Paislee, Moonstruck collection for my layout, and this includes the paper piecing inside my numerals title.
As my layout is very delicate and soft, I added the specialty gold vellum paper and machine stitching to make my title stand out just a bit more!
Here's a few close up shots for you....

I adorned my title with ephemera and puffy stickers too!

That gold vellum is just divine!!!

I also used a few inspirational words to remind me of my goals this year - wander more, take big chances, have a timeless beautiful life & be unstoppable!

And there you have it!
I hope you liked my delicate & girly take on this fun new challenge!
