When I received the collection, the blue really struck me so I decided to go with those tones on this layout.I went to town with lots of punching,sewing and die cutting with this layout as I loved the papers so much.
Firstly I used a sheet of Ivory 12 x 12 card, then after cutting down by 1/4 of an inch on two sides added a sheet of the beautiful blue paper from the 12 x 12 Patterns and Solids Pad.
I then used a punch around the page on a sheet of the blue side of Full Bloom paper, then pierced around the edge with a piercing tool then sewed with cream thread.
I cut some random length strips from the papers measuring half an inch wide and adhered them on the right hand side of the layout.I also tried some different journalling cards on the left from the Journalling Ephemera Pack.
My photo was mounted on plain blue paper and placed half way down on the right hand side and embellished with the die cuts. To add some extra detail,I dotted around some of the elements with a white pen.I also fussy cut some flowers from the papers.
From the Literary Lessons paper, I fussy cut the oval with the group of ladies on and adhered on the bottom left of the layout.
I’ve really loved working this collection and will be back with something else very soon from it.
I used some papers from the 8×8 pad to mat behind my photo.Next, time for some fussy cutting! I cut lots of flowers and leaves out and also some butterflies and items from the Adventure Beckons sheet .
I coloured over some of the flowers and butterflies with some Gold Mist.
I used three of the little postcards from the Ephemera Pack to tuck in and around the layout.
Next, I took two strips of the Futuristic Fantasy paper, rolled some of the background up on the top left and bottom right of the layout then added the fantasy strips behind.
Denise here with my second layout using the Little Darlings Collection from Graphic 45.I wanted to use as many of these lovely papers as I could so started by using Little Treasures as my base.
Next I took Kewpie Cute and cut the frame out. I trimmed it down then mounted onto foam tape and placed on to the base.
I drew a heart onto the polka dot side of Rock a Bye, cut it out then placed it onto the middle of the base.Next, I took lots of different papers, cut into varying shapes to use under my photo which was mounted on to some of the stripey side of Heaven Sent.
I used the papers to die cut some flowers, some berry vine and to punch along the edges to decorate the layout.I fussy cut some roses from the papers and placed across the middle and top, as well as using some of the stickers from the sticker sheet
I also used some chipboard elements to embellish the layout too.
Good morning everyone and Happy New Year to you all.
I was chuffed to bits when I was sent the wonderful Graphic 45 collection Little Darlings this month. I have recently joined the grandparents club so of course I have some baby photos to use !
I love the mix of ditsy flower papers, ginghams and stripes in this collection.
I used a sheet of Ballet Kaisercard for my base. I then used a selection of three papers, a polka dotty one and gingham one were cut into 12 x 2.5 inch strips then punched along one long side with a decorative punch.
I cut a larger piece of ditsy flower paper and layered these over the base of pink card leaving a tiny strip of card showing.
I dotted round the punched edges with a Kaiser Gel Pen to make the pattern pop a bit.
I made a frame from the gingham paper to frame my photo and layered some papers under this on the left hand side of my layout.
Next I used some stickers from the sticker sheet to embellish around the layout and one of the gingham frames was used to frame a tiny photo.I cut two tiny banners from the papers to add around the little photo alongside some of the stickers. I also fussy cut some little butterflies to dot around.
On the right hand side I mounted another piece of cherry card and individually cut all the little stamps from the same Nordic Greetings paper. Once I had arranged these I added the round photo, mounted on more cherry card, over the top of a larger mounted banner that I had cut from the Winter Wonderland paper. I then added the embellishment clusters to each of the photo arrangements. For the right hand one I used a Holly collectable and ribbon from the Basecoat Christmas Collection (which is currently in the Sale so do hurry..these are so useful!!) and a wooden holly flourish along with some Fire Red Mini blooms, a pre made poinsettia from my stash and a twirl of Cherry Red Hemp Cord together with some Lippy Red rhinestones.
For the left hand cluster I used a pine cone collectable and a sentiment from the Basecoat Christmas Collectables pack and more of the same as above.
I love this wonderfully traditional G45 collection so do hurry and grab yourself one of these great collections so you’re all ready to scrap those Christmas Memories.
A sheet of the reverse of the Holly Berries sheet used previously and topped with a piece from the Rustic Holiday papers mounted on the Cherry Weave Cardstock and then double mounted on Moss Weave Cardstock.
These G45 papers are absolutely gorgeous, they are perfect if like me you love fussy cutting, here are some close ups, the flowers were mainly cut from cut from the beautiful Victoria paper.
……and the adorable little perfume bottles and cream bottles were cut from the Isabella paper, you will have lots left over, they make ideal embellishments for cards or other projects, layer them up, they look fab.
Here is the second layout, mainly using the more gold coloured papers and lots of the pretty ornate frames and the portraits.
