Odds & Ends Challenge: Meow Layout by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here with a scrapbook page made almost entirely with the Odds and Ends pack and some of my favorite tone-on-tone papers from the Kitten Smitten collection.   I adore all the die-cuts that comes in the Doodlebug Odds & Ends collections.  They are stuffed full of so many darling pieces perfect for embellishing your projects.  For my layout today, I thought it would be fun to take my die-cuts to the next level by adding some special touches to them.

Embellishment Opportunity #1: Add Glossy Accents by Ranger over the top of a die-cut after it's been adhered to your page for a bit of shine (just make sure you can set your project aside afterward so you don't run a sleeve through it before it's had time to dry).  ;)

Embellishment Opportunity #2:  Wrap the die-cuts with thread or baker's twine to add extra texture and a touch of realism (or as an alternative, stitch around them on your sewing machine).

Embellishment Opportunity #3:  Add a touch of glitter using Stickles glitter glue or by adding some liquid adhesive and sprinkling with Doodlebug's Sugar Coating Glitter.

Embellishment Opportunity #4:  Pop up die-cuts with foam tape to add extra depth to your project and create interest with the shadows.
