Some Moments with Breathe



Hi everyone, Denise here with my second project using the absolutely lovely Breathe collectionIMG_7937-2

I decided to use the blue and white of this collection and add a splash of pink.

Firstly I took  a heart template and drew round it then cut it out from a sheet of Navy Night Paper, taking care to avoid the flowers in the corner.

I then used a pokey tool to pierce all around the edge of the heart, then stitched with white thread.IMG_7940

I then carefully placed the heart that had been cut out into the middle of a piece of Snow Kaisercard and placed the frame of navy paper that had the stitching round the heart over it mounted on to foam tape to add depth over the heart on the card.

I cut out lots of the flowers from what was left and used lots of collectables to add dimension.IMG_7942

My photo was tucked under one side of the heart with some sticker banners from the Sticker Book underneath it .

I also used some of the fussy cut flowers and collectables around the top of the heart .


To finish off I dotted around the outside edges of the layout with a white pen.


and added some Snow Pearls and heart sticker and title from the sticker bookIMG_7937

This is a really beautiful collection and I will be back with my last project using it very soon.

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.

IMG_7334 From the Literary Lessons paper, I fussy cut the oval with the group of ladies on and adhered on the bottom left of the layout.IMG_7332

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

Girls Club with Boho Dreams

Hello everyone,

Denise here today with another layout using Boho Dreams Kaisercraft collection.

008My main focus in this layout is the Dream Catcher Die Cut Paper.

dreamcatcher-die-cut-paper-boho-dreams-collectionI am one who loves a bit of ‘fussy cutting’ so I decided to do some ‘back filling’ with this gorgeous die cut paper.

Firstly I took a sheet of wild paper and drew around the inside of one of the diamonds on the die cut paper.

128I cut enough diamonds to fill one round of larger diamonds and one round of smaller diamonds.

I then stuck mini foam pads all around the back.

129Next I stuck the diamonds using alternating patterns to the back of the die cut paper.

131Until it looked like this….

133I then placed foam pads all around the outer edge and stuck it to the brown side of Dreamcatcher paper.

I matted my photo on to some pieces of the Wild and Adventurer papers.

140Now it was time to crack open the Collectables and choose some to layer around my photo.

008Thank you for popping by and hope you can come back to see some more inspiration from the team very soon.
