Karen here with my first project using the beautiful Breathe collection. How gorgeous is this range with its subtle tones of pink, grey, navy and black?
I was so inspired by the collection that I have scrapped four photos that were taken last Saturday. Often, I take photos and they languish on my phone for months before they are used but I thought these ones went so perfectly with the Breathe paper range I printed them out immediately and used them in a pocket page. Chrissy has pocket/project life pages here.
I started by cutting two pieces of Anchor Weave Cardstock and six pieces of Snow Weave Cardstock measuring 4 ins x 3 ins. From the 6.5 x 6.5 Paper Pad I cut six pieces of paper, measuring 3.75 x 2.75 and four measuring 3.5in x 2.5in. I mounted the six 3.75 x 2.75 peices onto the smooth side of the Snow Weave Cardstock rctangles and then added the smaller pieces onto four of these.
I then used stickers from the Breathe Sticker Book to further embellish my remaining white cards, adding a couple of Curios and Chocolate Pearls. I added some Mounting Foam Dots behind some of the stickers to give them some dimension.
Next I used a pencil and the Leaves Mini Designer Stencil to draw part of the design onto the two Anchor Weave Cardstock cards. I flipped the stencil over so that the designs were facing the opposite way.
I then used a fine needle to prick out the pattern and sewed it with two strands of embroidery floss.
Once assembled I think this page has a lot of interest due to the abundance of stickers which would have looked ‘over the top’ if I had used that many on a 12 x 12 page.
I already have my next page, using this collection, ready and it has another way to use the Leaves Mini Designer Stencil together with several papers and embellishments from the Breathe collection which have the same pretty flower design.
