Rhoda and Nelly!

Over on Scrapology for the month of May, we are challenging you to use a few charms on your layouts. See 'C is for Charms' post on the Scrapology Blog.

The photo is my mother-in-law Rhoda standing outside the house next to her treasured clematis - Nelly Mosa. May 1984

We are scraplifting this gorgeous page by Karola Witczak

and here is our sketch

I used these lovely products:
1 Sheet Cream Bazzill cardstock
3 x 12” x 12” Patterned Papers - Basic Grey Kissing Booth – Kiss, lip lock and butterfly kisses

Key and clock charms from Kitty Pink and a dragonfly charm from Wild Orchid Crafts
A mix of pink and white hellebores, sweetheart blossoms and gardenia from Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearl beads, pink green and white
How I made my page:
Cut two strips of ‘butterfly kisses’ to 12” x 2.5”, stick this to top and bottom of cardstock.

Cut ‘kiss’ to 12” x 9.5” and trim long sides with deep edge punch. Using the side you don’t intend to use for the layout lay along the pink strips and dab with ink using the paper as a mask.
Flip lace edged paper over to the right side and stick horizontally to centre of the layout overlapping the borders.

Cut a photo mat from pink scraps, and music paper the same size as the photo and mount the mat and photo off setting them from one another.

Cut ‘Weathered Clock’ face using Tim Holts die and Big Shot.
Stamp a Stampin’ Up ‘Sense of Time’ clock face.
Stamp a journaling block onto a plain light coloured paper scrap. Add this to the centre left behind by cutting the clock face. Add journalling.

Cut a ‘Madera Corner’ using Memory Box die and Big Shot.
Punch a butterfly with the Martha Stewart punch.

Make some layered flowers by cutting tattered flowers with the Big Shot from music paper and add pearl beads to the centres.

Arrange all these die cuts and the charms and flowers over the page. When happy with the arrangement attach everything to the layout.
