The Victorians

My children dressed for Victorian Day at Primary School back in 1999

This is my second page for the Scrapology May 'C is for Charms' challenge.

This is the pretty layout we are scraplifting by Karola Witczak

 Here is our sketch 

I used papers from Kaiser Craft's Sweet Nothings collection.
The stripe paper is called 'All Yours', and the beige patterned paper is called 'Devoted'
The music print is called 'Sincerely'
Green print is 'Love Letters'.

Use a sheet of cardstock as a base, this will be completely covered, so don't worry about the colour.

Cut 2 strips 12" x 2.5" from the striped paper, ink the edges and stick to top and bottom of base card.

I cut the Devoted paper to 9.5" x 12" and trimmed the 12" sides with a Martha Stewart border punch. Ink the edges and stick centrally to base.

Cut the photo mat from music paper the same size as photo. Distress both photo and mat, ink the edges and mount off set onto layout, don't stick right down as other bits need to be tucked underneath later.

Use the Big Shot and cut the clock face from cinnamon Bazzill cardstock and add to page.

Cut title from pink side of 'Love Letters' paper and shadow from Suguaro cardstock - I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge.

Cut leaves from Storybook Cartridge and green side of 'Love Letters' paper and add to layout with some pre-made roses. The butterflies were cut from the 'Love Letters' paper and glittered with Stickles. I added metal photo corners, and some charms.

I added a buckle charm to a length of brown gross grain ribbon and attached over the bottom of the photo.

The book plate was made using the Fabulous Find cartridge and I added some flat backed pearls.

Thanks for looking, and please take a look on the Scrapology site to see what the rest of the DT came up with and the details of the 'C is for Charms' challenge.
