Linda here with a layout made with the fabulous #Me Collection from Kaisercraft.
I began with a sheet of Coconut Kaisercard and gutted the centre 2″ from the edge, followed by a piece of Brey Kaisercard which has been edge with a Martha Stewart Punch-around-the-page, deep edge. Once done I gutted the centre 3″ from the white edge. A frame of Licorice Kaisercard was last, measuring 8 3/4″ square and gutted to 1″.
Lots of gutting there but it saves cardstock and makes the pages lighter. Next came a square cut from Goals keeping the floral pattern on the left. Faux stitching was added to the edge with a Black Micron Pen.
My photograph was trimmed to 3 x 6″ and mounted onto the left over Licorice Kaisercard, along with a piece from the reverse of Goals (grid) and a message cut from Encourage which I raised on mounting foam. Tabs were added from the Sticker Sheet top right and bottom left.
I made the flowers using Burlap ribbon and a Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die. I shaped them the same way as I did roses previously and included a layer of white mesh. The smaller blooms have a button stitched through and the whole thing is glued together.
Once in place, I added some foliage cut with another Sizzix die, made some smaller roses with paper from The Paper Pad and punched some daisies and leaves. I used the cut-off strip from goals to add a row of hearts too. Then, back to the Micron Pen and a White Gel Pen to add stitching to the foliage. Lastly, some Black Rhinestones dotted around to add flower centres and accents.
Check back later for more inspiration from the team, until then,
