10 Months

A little extra layout made using the Papermaze September Kit.

Not the colours you would normally associate with a baby layout. However, I had the remainder of the kit on my table, when I laid down some photos I had just printed of baby Scarlett Rose who has just turned 10 months old. The colouring was perfect for the photos, so I set about making another layout!

For details of the kit, and how this layout was made please see the Scrap, Paper, Scissors blog and the Papermaze shop website.

Thanks for looking, back soon with the October Kit.

We Will Remember Them - 1918 - 2018

I thought I would have a go as the CS Get Crafty October sketch challenge. We are approaching November 11th, so I decided to use the centenary of the end of World War I and some of my ancestors who fought in the war as my theme for the layout. 

Here is the sketch:

I used a mix of different papers, including the remains of a sheet of paper from the Mintay Farmlife collection left over from the layout I made using a C&S Get Crafty kit. This is where I cut, gutted and inked the six frames from.

I printed out photos for six ancestors from my mother's family. I used papers from several older Kaisercraft collections:
Timeless Collection - Botanical
Be-You-Tiful collection - Glamorous
In The Attic collection - Closet
Base Coat collection - 

Remember Me collection - Sticker sheet

My title was cut with a Crafter's Companion alphabet and was layered up with scraps of the papers used for the rest of the page.

Better late than never - I have finished my September entry for the C&S Getcrafty challenge with a day to spare!

A layout for my daughter's wedding album - It's hard to believe it's nearly a year since the wedding now.
This month's challenge is a colour one, using the image below for inspiration.

I used a Placemat from Jillibean Soup - White Chevrons, I have had this in my stash for some months waiting for the right moment. 
I had lots of scraps left over from another layout when I used the Gypsy Rose collection from Kaisercraft. The colours were ideal, I just needed to add a little gold in the form of card for cutting the letters for the title.

It may look quite a simple design, but it tool a long time cutting and sticking all the shapes behind the apertures!

I made a set of templates by drawing through each shape, then cutting them a little larger, then I could simply cut what I needed. I used a sheet of white cardstock as a base, sticking the placemat to in along one side only, so I could set it aside like a booklet, to get underneath and stick the shapes to the card.

This is what it looked like before adding the photo and surface details. No need to fill the apertures where they wouldn't show.

I framed the photo with a card frame from the Kaisercraft Full Bloom collection 'Frame Cluster'.
I cut flowers from the 'Inspiring' paper, to make two clusters of blossoms. I added fronds using a Martha Stewart punch and more scraps of paper. A little stickles was added to these leaves.

The title was cut using a Sizzix Sizzlit alphabet die set - 'Block Party', and some Jillibean Soup Mini Alpha - Green Apple.

Thanks for looking.
