Ranger Guides

My design team layout for this month's challenge over on Scrapology.
I used a photograph of my mother and her friend Janette when they were Ranger Guides back in about 1950.

We are scraplifting this pretty layout by Sandie Edwards (her blog can be seen HERE).

We drew our sketch:

We are challenging you to create a layout with a 'starburst' using any shapes to focut on your photograph.

Here is what I used and what I did:
Kaiser Craft Papers from the Marigold collection.

Inkadinkado Stamping Gear Intro Kit, Memento ink pad, button, DMC thread, small doily, Ranger Distress stain, Liquid Pearls, Stampin' Up label punch & scalloped edged scissors

With the 'Maple' paper and the blue polka dot  side up, dab a few splodges of distress ink randomly over the page.

Use the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear Intro Kit to create a circle of petals. This is about 3 1/2" in from the left and up from the bottom.  Choose and attach the stamp you choose (from the four supplied) 1/2" in from the bottom of the shaped stamping block. Stamp in every slot of the cog.
Please see You Tube Video by EK Success.

 Stamp 16 images using the same stamp on the blue side of 'Tawny' paper. These are cut out, the edges inked with chalk ink and stuck over the images stamped onto the 'Maple' paper.

 Stamp 8 more images from orange side of 'Spice' paper, then 8 images from the other side of the same paper. Cut all these out, curve them slightly with the scissor blade. Arrange them in between the blue petals. Stick the points close to the inner circle with glue and the wider end with some 3D foam pads to add dimension.

Attach a small doily over the centre of the circle.
Cut your photo into a circle to fit within the doily centre, and a circular mat slightly bigger than the photo from the orange side of 'Spice' paper. Ink and layer in centre of Circle.

Punch a label from the other side of 'Spice' paper, write details of photo onto label, ink edges and add to bottom of photo with 3D foam pads.

Add a few spots of Liquid Pearls around the photo mat.

Use one of the manufacturer's cut off strips and pleat it. stick to top right of layout.
Cut a fine strip of the orange side of 'Spice' paper with scalloped scissors about 6" long and attach under the pleated strip.

Take a button, thread with DMC thread and tie in a bow on top of the button. Stick button about 1" in from the right over the paper strips.
Pop over to Scrapology to read more details of the challenge and prize.
