Timeless Moments with Cottage Rose

Hello everyone,

Denise here again with another layout featuring the gorgeous Cottage Rose Collection.

058I wanted to make use of some of the many frames on one of the papers called ‘Framed’

framed-cottage-rose-collectionI started by using Ballet Weave Kaisercard as my base. I then took the  Garden paper, cut it down to 11.25 x 11.25 and placed it green side up on the pink card. Next I took the Fragrant paper, gutted the middle out leaving a roughly one inch frame all round but leaving the rose in the corner intact – cutting round that. This was mounted on foam tape and placed onto the green Garden paper.

Now for the frames. I decided on using  frames to look like they were pictures on a wall – using two photos . Firstly I placed the photos where I wanted them. I carefully cut the middle out from the larger pink frame removing the green wording then mounted this over my larger photo with foam tape. I then used the stone looking frame and cut the pink middle out. I placed my photo inside the frame then added the green frame on foam tape after cutting out the floral middle.

Some Soft Pink Rhinestones were used as embellishments in the middle frame and inside the key. My title was cut from the wording from inside two of the frames.

055I also used the grey manufacturer’s strip with the words ‘ A moment lasts all of a second but the memory lives on forever’ from the Floral Bouquet paper along the bottom of the pink frame. Lastly, my journalling was written along the side of the frame using the gorgeous glittery black pen from the Kaiser Gel pen set.059 (2)This is a fabulous collection – it was really hard to decide which sides to use as they are all so lovely. Thanks for popping by and hope to see you back soon for some more inspiration from the team.
