Life Itself is the Most Wonderful Fairytale with Flowers Story

Hello, Karen here with my final project for February using the lovely Flowers Story range from ScrapBoys.  IMG_2540

This time I decided to make a double layout – mainly because the paper pack has two of every paper and it would would be a shame not to utalise them ( the paper pack is an absolute bargain  – 12 papers, plus a fussy cutting sheet, for £9.95).

The final page was a happy accident as I had planned for the two pages to be the opposite way round (with the small centre cluster in the middle) but when I laid them down to photograph put them the opposite way round and liked it better – the joy of double pages :0).

For this page I have used the Flowers Story paper pack, one piece of Paper 07  Mandela 12 x 12 Stencil, Red Gum Ink Pad and two sheets of Oatmeal Kaisercard.

I started by trimming .5 in from one side and the bottom of two pieces of Paper 05 and adding it to my Oatmeal Kaisercard. I laid them side by side and used the Mandela 12 x 12 Stencil and the Red Gum Ink Pad to add a pattern to the centre.


Next I cut the cluster of flowers from both pieces of Paper 03 and added them to the centre of the Mandela. I cut Paper 02 in half vertically and fussy cut around the flowers, adding this to the far left and far right of my pages.


From Paper 07 and the corresponding sheet from the paper pack I cut Four butterflies, two large and two small watch faces and four black and white flowers. I added these to the small cluster and top and bottom of the cascade of flowers down the centre.

From Paper 06, I cut four large frames and added them to my page, with my photos on top.

I used ‘Life itself is the most WONDERFUL FAIRYTALE stamp and a scrap of paper for my title.

I have really enjoyed working with this paper range this month and have found it so versatile, it is the perfect range for both male and female projects.
