Hi everyone,

Denise here with my final layout using the Little Darlings  Graphic 45 collection.

IMG_E8510I love the fact that there are some pastel colours in this collection together with some lovely vibrant blues and peaches so you can ring the changes.

I used the Bundle of Joy paper for my base, then covered it so just the edge was showing with the polka dot side of Rock A Bye.

Next, I used some texture paste through Crackle Stencil

Crackle Mini Designer Stencil

I then used some of the remaining papers to layer under and mat my photo.

I also used some stickers from the sticker sheet to embellish and some of the lovely chipboard elements.

I die cut and punched some leaves and flowers from the remaining papers and layered them on foam tape.


IMG_8488Most of the elements were inked around with with Bundled Sage Distress Ink

Finally I used some Soft Pink Rhinestones in the centre of my flowers .

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing a different collection of papers and the team will be back soon with some more inspiration.

Sweet Girl with Little Darlings

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my second layout using the Little Darlings Collection from Graphic 45.IMG_8370I wanted to use as many of these lovely papers as I could so started by using Little Treasures as my base.

Next I took Kewpie Cute and cut the frame out. I trimmed it down then mounted onto foam tape and placed on to the base.

IMG_8324I drew a heart onto the polka dot side of Rock a Bye, cut it out then placed it onto the middle of the base.IMG_8322Next, I took lots of different papers, cut into varying shapes to use under my photo which was mounted on to some of the stripey side of Heaven Sent.

I used the papers to die cut some flowers, some berry vine and to punch along the edges to decorate the layout.IMG_8363I fussy cut some roses from the papers and placed across the middle and top, as well as using some of the stickers from the sticker sheet

I also used some chipboard elements to embellish the layout too.

Being Nanny with Graphic 45

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year to you all.

I was chuffed to bits when I was sent the wonderful Graphic 45 collection Little Darlings this month. I have recently joined the grandparents club so of course I have some baby photos to use !

IMG_E8012I love the mix of ditsy flower papers, ginghams and stripes in this collection.

Little Darlings Deluxe Collectors Edition

I used a sheet of Ballet Kaisercard for my base. I then used a selection of three papers, a polka dotty one and gingham one were cut into 12 x 2.5  inch strips then punched along one long side with a decorative punch.

IMG_8008I cut a larger piece of ditsy flower paper and layered these over the base of pink card leaving a tiny strip of card showing.

IMG_8016I dotted  round the punched edges with a Kaiser Gel Pen to make the pattern pop a bit.

I made a frame from the gingham paper to frame my photo and layered some papers under this on the left hand side of my layout.

Next I used some stickers from the sticker sheet to embellish around the layout and one of the gingham frames was used to frame a tiny photo.IMG_8013I cut two tiny banners from the papers to add around the little photo alongside some of the stickers. I also fussy cut some little butterflies to dot around.

My frames were mounted with some foam tape.

I really enjoyed working with these lovely papers and am looking forward to making another layout with them .

Happy crafting !
