Life and Love with Little Women

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my second project and this month I am using the exquisite Little Women collection from Graphic 45

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.

I die cut various elements from the following dies,Floral Branch  Floral Cluster Berry Vine Fern Leaf from various papers in the collection.

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.

I’ve really loved working this collection and will be back with something else very soon from it.

Happy Crafting
