The new monthly Being Scrappy Kit for October is out now and there are some fab papers and other embellishments to get crafty with! I had some recent photos of Eliza, our friends Simon and Julia's cute daughter, with the little Minnie doll that we gave her. They were just perfect with the 'Beautiful Life' papers by Echo Park.
Use the navy Bazzill as the base for the layout but gut a 9" piece from the centre.
Cut a 10.5" piece of the 'Doilies' paper, distress the edges and stick down centrally onto the navy Bazzill.
Next cut a 4.5" x 11.25" strip of the 'Banners' paper, cut a banner piece out of one end and then stick down to the bottom of the layout. Cut an 11.25" strip of the 'Tickets' paper, cut a banner edge and stick down.
Crop 4 x photos to 3" x 4" and adhere 3 of them just over the ticket strip. Mount the fourth one onto the navy Bazzill.
Cut out one of the journaling cards from the 'Journaling Cards' paper and stick down to the top left of the layout. Add your journaling.
Add embellishments to the bottom left of the journaling card, top right of the mounted photo and below the row of three photos. I punched some circles, butterflies, leaves and decorative borders from the various papers and layer them up as shown.
Add a title, I used a Thickers alpha from a previous Kit and one from my own stash.
Have a look here to see the layouts that Niki has designed from the October Kit. The Kit is available from here for a limited time...
Thanks for looking!
