Periodic Table Layout for Papermaze

A layout to celebrate many of the items sold and the varied activities that go on at Papermaze.
I was inspired by a layout I saw in a CK magazine over a decade ago designed by Lisa Moorefield, I recently came across her post on  'A little scrapbooking' from 2013 which makes interesting reading.

Close up of the left hand page:

 In more detail I have included:
1. Pm - Papermaze for the name of the shop (real and online) - this had to be orange as it is the colour of the internal walls of the shop and Vanessa's favourite colour.
2. Details of the shop.
3. First part of the symbol key - with stitched on buttons for decoration.
4. Bd - brads using four red brads.
5. Lc - Lace with a short length of the heart shaped cotton lace attached.
6. A photo of some the amazing range of cardstock in the store.
7. Sm - Stencils and Masks - I inked through a mask on this space.
8. Sw - Sewing - with a stitched border.
9. Cr - Crops - held once a month in the village hall with an optional kit and a chance to shop in the store - Always involves lots of cake!!
10. Rs - Rubber Stamps - This space has been stamped and I added a rubber stamp wooden embellishment I have had in my stash for many years.
11.  Cs - Cardstock.
12. Rubons - I used some old Making Memories rubons here.
13. A-Z - Alphabet Stickers - using Doodlebug Designs Inc. Stickers.
14. Gl - Glitter - A stickled border and a sparkly heart shaped bead.
15. A photo of some of the beautiful layouts on display in the shop for inspiration.
16. Sn - Stain - I splodged Distress stain about here!
17. Bt - Buttons - 3 buttons stitched in place.
17. Embossed - Dry embossed card using Cuttlebug embossing folder and then distressed.
