Somewhere Over The Rainbow with Crafternoon

Hello, Karen here with my first project using Kaisercraft’s Crafternoon range.  When I saw the gingham paper from the Crafternoon range I knew I wanted to make a multi photo page about a Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz, costume my daughter and I made. 
IMG_0792I often take part in a challenge from a group called Scrap Squad and they have a weekly scraplift, this week’s scraplift from Scrap Squad was perfect for this.

I started by working out the size of my grid and then used blue embroidery thread to stitch the lines I had drawn onto a piece of Kaisercard Snow Weave

I then cut two 3in x 4in sections from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to fill in two more sections.  I used one of the gingham pages from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad for the central 6in x 4in section and made a pocket using another page from the pad.

I added my photographs and then stamped the stitched heart, from the Crafternoon stamp set,  using  a Lagoon Mini Ink Pad.

I pricked each end of the ‘stitches’ and stitched them with the same blue thread as before and trimmed around the edge.

I added my photos and used flowers from the Sticker Book and some Collectables to make two clusters on my page, adding a Curio to each cluster. I used the middle sized die from the Fancy Doily die to cut a white doily and after cutting this in half added to the top of the far left photo and the bottom of the far right.

I used the alphabet stickers from the Sticker Book for my title and added my journaling onto a piece of plain card, which I popped into the pocket, using a border punch along the top.

The Crafternoon  collection was perfect for this page, especially as the DIY paper matched the fabric used for Gracia’s costume.
