High Tea Scrapbook Layout

Hi there

Elaine here again, this time with a pretty layout using the High Tea collection showcasing the co-ordinating Clear Texture Doily stamp.
imageTo start with I took the High Tea wood effect Biscuit paper from the collection and added a circle of small doilies that I stamped using the Tim Hotz Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. I also mixed some of the ink into Texture paste to colour it and stencilled a rectangle using the Mini Mix Designer Stencil and the pre-coloured texture paste.

imageWhilst this was drying I fussy cut the coffee pot from the High Tea Cuppa Paper and several flowers and leaves from the Devonshire High Tea Paper until I had enough to arrange around the photograph. I then took more pieces of the Cuppa Paper and layered them behind the photo, raising the picture up on foam pads for dimension. I also stamped another small doily and heat embossed it, tucking it in amongst the fussy cut elements at the top of the picture.

imageI then took lots of die cuts from the High Tea collectables pack and the  6.5″ paper pad and I punched some tiny hearts from scraps of paper too and placed them around the circle of stamped doilies. For each of the flowers and leaves, I curled them around my fingers to give them a slightly more curved/natural look. The title to the left of the picture was a strip from the High Tea coordinating 6.5″ paper pad.

imageTo finish off I used pearls from my stash in each of the small doilies and I used the tag from a cupcake I had been given at the Afternoon Tea Bridal Shower that I was attending when the photo was taken.

It’s such a pretty collection..don’t you agree?
