Autumn Captured

Another layout created at our weekend away a few weeks ago. I used the Golden Grove papers by Kaisercraft, for a little stash busting. The photo was taken of my daughter by her friend Gemma when they went to take autumnal pictures at Hall Place in Bexley. They were studying for their photography A level at the time.

I used a sheet of Collated, and with Distress Oxide Inks I stencilled leaves using a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil. I tore across a sheet of Fallen Leaves paper in half and stick this over the bottom half of the Collated paper. I staggered the photo with a series of mats cut from the collection.

The chipboard circle is from Dusty Attic and is from the Baroque Frame Set. I used Versamark Ink and Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel (Shabby White) to emboss the chipboard. I created some leaves, toad stalls and acorns using the Sizzix Funky Foilage Thinlits die set and paper scraps form the Golden Grove collection.

I added some gems to the chipboard.

For the title I used a Sizix Bigz XL alphabet die and a Thinlits set - cutout script and more papers from the collection.

The Sweet Life

Here is a layout I made while away on our annual craft retreat to Easthampstead Park with an amazing  bunch of crafty girls.

The photo was taken at one of our monthly crops last year, when we celebrated my birthday. The talented Anita surprised me by making cakes and altered the photo to bring out the blues.

I have been planning to scrap this photo for almost a year and had picked these Indigo Skies papers from Kaisercraft for the purpose.

The base is a sheet of Shibori  with the white side up. Then the wooden strips were created from a sheet of Misty paper. The butterflies were fussy cut from a sheet of Chambray and the wings raised with foam pads. The butterflies were given a sparkle with some Nuvo Glitter Drops.

The lettering was cut from a sheet of Blue Moon Paper, and a little journalling was written on one of the wooden panels.
