1950's Sweethearts

Mum and Dad bay in the 1950's before they were married, and another layout for the September Scrapology Scraplift challenge.

This time I used some Crate papers from my stash, I'm not sure what collection I have had them a while and had started to use them so the label has been cut off! I chose the cream lacy edge paper for the background as there is a lot of 'white space' with this design. It had the brown polka-dot design on the reverse side.

The starburst was created by drawing a circle and then cutting across the diameter four times and folding back the segments. I inked them and added a foam pad under each one to maintain the dimension. I stuck the photo behind the aperture created. Then I cut eight more triangles the same size as the segments in a different paper and placed these between the original eight.

I decorated between each segment with some tiny roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and added some fern leaves cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

To the bottom right I added a lacy border sticker from the same paper collection, with a cluster of three roses and more fern leaves.

The title numbers were American Craft Thickers and the lettering was cut from a Sizzlet decorative strip die.

A relatively quick layout to make. I did ink the edges of all the triangles and leaves.

This is the original layout we are scraplifting by the talented Sandie Edwards:

Here is the sketch:
