Hello folks! It was my sister's 49th birthday in September and another opportunity for the family to get together. We happened to be wearing a right riot of colours and I thought it would be great fun to Scrap these shots. Now, this month, over on Scrapology we're scraplifting a fun double layout by Stacey Hansen and the additional challenge is 'Texture'. As the sketch includes 7 photos I thought it would be perfect for these. There is a fabulous prize up for grabs and inspiration for all from the talented DT here.
Here's a closer look at the LHS. Most of the products used are 'Vintage Blue' by WRMK. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the long edges on the centre strip. On top of that I placed the pink flocked lace - gorgeous texture. I made the photo mats from the Tim Holtz 'Kraft-Core' nostalgic collection cardstock. I embossed the mats on my Cuttlebug and sanded the surface back to reveal some of the Kraft coloured core.
A closer look at the RHS. I used my Nestabilities to cut the circles, brackets, rectangles and scalloped mats. I cut the large arc using the WRMK circle cutter.
The flowers were originally a tag but I cut them out, shaped them, inked the edges and adhered with dimensional glue gel. I added the glitter to the centres of the flowers and also to all the flowers on the patterned papers.
Ciao for now.
