Vegas Jackpot / A Flair For Buttons

Happy Friday, friends!  I have a new layout to share for A Flair For Buttons using some awesome flair from three different sets.  I used the Black Marquee, Love You and Travel Phrases 2 sets.  I love scrapping photos of our trips to Las Vegas, and this page was so fun to create!  I used lots of watercolors and gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine, some random washi tapes, lots of MAMBI stickers and a few Project Life cards and a random piece of cardstock.  I also added in a few cloud cut file die cuts I had sitting around on my desk from The Cut Shoppe.  I had fun mixing and matching different things together on this.  I used the packaging technique with the watercolor & spray on the background and added in some washi tape strips after I decided how I wanted to arrange the pictures.  I was so excited when I realized how awesome these three flair looked here.  I thing the Marquee collection is so perfect for a Vegas page!

We visited Freemont Street on our most recent trip to Vegas, and that's where a lot of the older casinos are, like Binions and the Golden Nugget.  These are pictures from Binions.  We just had to pose in front of the million dollars...haha!  I decided to line up all three flair instead of scattering them around the page.  I love how they look on top of the blue watercolor, and all the gold really contrasts nicely.

I cut "vegas" on my Cameo in a font called Shoreline and painted it red with some Shimmerz Coloringz.  I absolutely LOVE this Thickers font!  It's so Vegas!  I stitched through the letters to make sure they were stuck for good.  I also added some blue stitching here and up top by the photos.

To create those subtle numbers,  I used some Elle's Studio stamps and some Heidi Swapp gold texture paste.  I just pressed the stamp into the paste and stamped it down.  I love the result...such a great effect and awesome texture!  I felt like I needed numbers on a page about a Vegas Jackpot..haha!  I also love how the clouds look...they don't really serve a specific purpose, but I love the detail with all the photos and fun gold.

Here you can see the blue stitching.  I also added some tangled thread and some gold round flat sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps.

Here are a few more fun close-ups of all the detail.
