Globecraft & Piccolo Mini Key Border

Today I'm going to show you a quick tip for using Globecraft & Piccolo Miniature Keys. They are perfect accents for heritage and vintage layouts.

G&P Miniature Keys
G&P Glastique Gloss
G&P 24K Gold Embossing Powder
Moxxie Musically Inclined Paper
May Arts Ribbons and Trim

To begin, I decided to leave some of the keys in their "raw" or natural state. I thought this would make a lovely contrast to the pieces I chose to emboss with G&P 24 K Gold Embossing powders.

Then I made a layout with a layered ribbon and trim border. Using G&P Glastique Gloss as an adhesive, I placed the keys on the border and used an "every other" pattern between the embossed and raw pieces.


All that was left was to add a photo and finish the page!

Today I am sharing a layout made with Musically Inclined. My daughter was a narrator in her second grade musical last month. They performed The Nutcracker Suite, and all the kids did so well! This line is perfect for the pictures I captured from the performance.
