Being Nanny with Graphic 45

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 !

IMG_E8012I love the mix of ditsy flower papers, ginghams and stripes in this collection.

Little Darlings Deluxe Collectors Edition

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.

IMG_8008I cut a larger piece of ditsy flower paper and layered these over the base of pink card leaving a tiny strip of card showing.

IMG_8016I 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.IMG_8013I 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.

My frames were mounted with some foam tape.

I really enjoyed working with these lovely papers and am looking forward to making another layout with them .

Happy crafting !
