I am excited to be the guest designer for Scrap That! this month. Let me just say that the "Afternoon Tea" Kit is stunning and features the Ladies and Gents collection from Webster's Pages. I will be sharing two layouts and two cards with you today.
If you have just arrived here from Lisa's blog, you are in the right place. If you are one of my wonderful regular visitors, head the the Scrap That! blog to join the fun!
My first layout was made using the June main kit. I love paper folding techniques and one of my favorites is the accordian fold. It is easy to do and adds elegance to your layout. I used the vellum sheets included inthe main kit to create my fan. I trimmed the edges of my fan using Stickles.
The leaves were cut using my Silhouette digital cutter. The red trim is cut from the vellum paper included in the main kit. The vellum sheets are perfect for layering due to their transparency.
My next project is an elegant greeting card made using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur die cutting machine. The main kit has beautiful pearl bling from Zva which I used to add interest and height to my card.
This is one of my favorite images from the Ladies and Gents collection. I punched several strips of cardstock and layered them to create an elegant background for my focal image. I cut a flourish from patterned paper and matted it on brown card stock.
The beautiful dog and pups were cut from my patterned paper. I inked the edges with Color Box Chalk ink in Chestnut Brown, then mounted my cut image using foam squares. I added Baby Blue Stickles to the crown and scalloped design and liquid pearls as accents to complete my design.
My last project is a 12 x 12 layout using the June sketch created by L.G. Belarmino.
I used the main kit along with the embellishment add-on. The flowers included in the add-on are gorgeous.
I used the main kit along with the embellishment add-on. The flowers included in the add-on are gorgeous. I had fun creating this layout featuring me and my daughter. I matted the die cut patterned paper with blue card stock which was trimmed with scallop edge scissors. I incorporated a number of easy techniques to add interest to my page.
I matted the die cut paper from the main kit onto light blue card stock. Then I trimmed the card stock using scallop edge scissors. I added pearls using a Pearl Pen (Ice White) to each small scallop. Next, I punched the edges of my pink patterned paper strip and stitched the edges using white embroidery floss. To finish my page, I added Stickles to each of the white squares on my patterned paper. This just further customizes the page.
