March Scrapology Challenge Layout

Here is my layout for this month's design team on Scrapology, using this photo of sweet little Esme from our visit to her and her mum Amy back in October last year.

The layout was made with these ingredients:
K & Company green letter stickers.
Prima pink songbird vine
Bo Bunny Love Bandit collection - Birdie die cut, Bee mine, Nuts 4 U.
Stampin’ Up Aviary stamp set.
Stampin’ Up ink pads in Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Rose Red.
Journalling block stamp - custom made
4 x 6” landscape photo
Stickles – crystal and lime green

Here is how I made the layout:
Gut the green side of ‘Bee Mine’ paper so you have a 12” x 12” - 1” frame, stick the ‘Birdie Die Cut’ sheet centrally over the green frame.

I Stamped bird cages in a variety of colours across the centre of the Die cut Sheet, add birds to the cages. Stamp more birds and cages onto smooth white card, and cut out leaving a fine white border around each image.

Using a Technique Tuesday Template, cut the outer shape from the pink side of ‘Be Mine’ and the inner, smaller shape from white side of ‘Nuts 4 U’.

Ink the edges and mount the white shape centrally onto the pink shape. Build this up with 3D foam pads and mount into the centre of the layout. Mount photo onto a piece of the green side of ‘Nuts 4U’. Mount the photo towards the top of the Big shape.

Stamp a circular Journalling block and mount this onto a circle of green paper. Add the journalling details and stick to the top right of the layout overlapping the photo slightly with 3D foam pads. Arrange a selection of bird cages around the journalingl block, some raised and some directly onto the layout.

Arrange the vine down the left side of the layout. Add a cage to the top branch so it appears to be hanging from the vine. Trim off a couple of flowers and add to the journaling block..

Add title with the glitter stickers under the photo. Then add stickles and gems to the cages and flowers.

We scraplifted this fabulous layout by the very talented Anita:
