You Are So Special with Secret Garden

Hello everybody!

Emmy here with my first project for July! This month I have the pleasure to work with one of Kaisercraft newest collections – Secret Garden (available at the Merly Impressions online store). This collection is has a lot of sweet florals and butterflies patterns perfect for girly shabby chic creations, but also grey and blue papers for those cute boy pictures.

My first project this month is a shabby chic layout a family picture of me and the kids.


For the background I used Posy pattern paper. I added a floral edge using a sticker from the 12″ Sticker sheet. Then I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Pad Picked Raspberry and I drew a white frame using white pen. After the ink has dried I stamped the doily pattern from the Clear Stamp Set matching the collection with Tim Holtz Mini Distress Ink Pad Picked Raspberry and sprinkled KaiserMist Spray Ink Red and Pink on top.


After the mists have dried, I added half of the Blossom die-cut paper, which I embellished with Pearls – Pearl. Then I created the layers under my picture using papers from the Paper Pad and die cut elements from the Paper Pad and the Collectables pack.


I added also various stripes with sayings from the 12″ Sticker sheet.


For the flowers I used die cuts and fussy cut elements from the Roses pattern paper. I added Stickles Star Dust to the flowers and leafy swirls cut with the Foliage decorative die.

The title and the sub-title I created with die cut elements from the Paper Pad and the Collectables pack. To finish off my design I added dots and hearts from Epoxy Stickers Candy.
