This week's Kit from Pages of Memories included the very pretty 'Pixie Glen' papers from Prima and some Glitz Teeny Alphas. I had a sweet photo of Lee's godson Oscar that I have been waiting to scrap for quite some time (he is almost 3 now)...
I cut a 7" x 12" piece of the cream Bazzill for the centre of my layout.
Then I cut 2 x pieces of the 'Cornwall' paper (floral vines side) 4 1/2" x 12" and 3 3/4" x 12" to use for the top and bottom of the layout. These were heavily distressed along the long inner edges with scissors, and then ripped a little and curled.
I cut a strip of the 'Cornwall' paper (green side) 1 1/2" x 12", and from the 'Devon' paper I cut the striped piece (from the side with lots of small elements) and distressed the long edges of both strips. These 2 x strips were attached to just under the distressed edges fof the large pieces of 'Cornwall' paper (look at the photo to see exactly what I mean). Then these were attached to the piece of cream Bazzil that you cut earlier. Make sure when you do this that the page still measures 12" x 12"!
My photo was mounted onto the brown Bazzill and attached to the right side of the layout, just tuck it under the curled edges.
I embellished the top right and bottom left of the photo with various elements cut from the 'Devon' paper, pieces of the flower ribbon that was in the kit, layered flowers (cut with a Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die) and leaves (cut with a Sizzix die). Some of them were raised up on foam pads.
I finished off with a title using the Glitz Teeny Alphas....
Pop on over and have a look at the blog for more layout ideas using this Kit.
Thanks for looking!
