Robin's Nest & Boy Embellies!

Today I am posting my first official page as a member of the Robin's Nest Design team, and I am so excited to share their products with you! When I received my box of supplies, I was so happy to see boy rubons! They are not easy to find! Oh, and the Robin's Nest paper is so beautiful! I love the Fleur Autumn paper with the Stripe Autumn on the back! It was so beautiful, I did not want to cut it up at first! And they offer it in several color combos! I wanted as much of the paper to show as possible, so I layered it with the fabulous netting from Robin's Nest! Perfect for a fishing page!

To make this page above use the following supply list and follow the steps below:

Supplies used:

The Robbin's Nest Fishing Rubons (fish, I got Caught Fishing, Rod and Reel)

The Robin's Nest Family Rubon (label swirl behind 2011)
The Robin's Nest Belgian Chocolate Rubon (Fleur De Lis) on "I got Caught Fishing" label

The Robin's Nest Letter Gold Glitter Stickers (2011)

The Robin's Nest Glitter Blue Chipboard (center of flower & mat for title)

Anna Griffin Georgette Collection Resin Cameo (flower embellishment)

Liquid Glass (on top of Robin's Nest glitter paper in center of flower and on fish rubon)

Button (Paper Trey Ink)

Blue Felt (Joann Fabrics)

Cricut Reminisce Accents cartridge (title label)

Paper Flowers (source unknown)

Cream Card Stock

1) Using the Robin's Nest blue glitter card stock, punch out a small circle and cover with liquid glass, set aside to dry.

2) Using the Robin's Nest Fishing Rubons, rub the trout onto cream card stock and cut around the edge. Cover with liquid glass and set aside to dry.

3) Using an Exacto knife or other craft knife, fussy cut around the swirls in one sheet of the Fleur Autumn paper. Save the center scrap to cut the label for the title below.

4) Turn over the Fleur Autumn to the Stripe Autumn side and glue the Robin's Nest netting in place using Terrifically Tacky Tape. I tried liquid glue but it was not stickying, so I recommend the Terrifically tacky tape to hold the netting. Trim excess netting as needed.

5)) Layer the fussy cut sheet of Fleur Autumn with netting on top of a second sheet of Fleur Autumn, and glue in place (see photo below).

6) Attach the Grossgrain ribbon with Glue Dots and layer The Robin's Nest Velvet Ribbon on top, again with glue dots.

7) Cut label for page with Cricut using the Reminisce Accents cartridge at 2", cutting the frame and black layer. Cut the frame layer with the Robin's Nest Autumn Stripe (back side of Fleur Autumn) using the scraps from the fussy cut in step 3. Don't have a Cricut? Just cut ovals!

8) Using The Robin's Nest Belgium Chocolate, rub the Fleur De Lis on the sides of the frame cut above in step 7.

9) Rubon The Robin's Nest Fishing Rod onto cream card stock and cut around the edge.

10) Rubon the The Robin's Nest Family Rubon swirl frame on cream card stock and adhere the Robin's Nest Glitter Letters on top, cut around frame and adhere on top of ribbon.

11) Cut circle out of blue felt and glue with paper flower embellishments to page. Below is a close up of some of the embellishments.

Hope you enjoy this page and get a chance to check out The Robin's Nest online Store! Your gonna love all their items!
