This week I am using the final selection of papers from this month's Being Scrappy Kit, 'Polka Dot Party' from American Crafts. Even though the papers are quite girly I used a photo of Lee and his godson Oscar and I think they work really well!
I used the pink Bazzill as the base for my layout.
Cut two 10" x 1.5" pieces of the butterflies 'Fantastic Favours' and stick down approx. 2" from the top and bottom of the layout. Leave an opening approx. 4.5" wide at the top right so that you can pop a tag in.
Cut out the large journaling card from the 'Fantastic Favours' paper, punch a hole in one end, cut the corners off into a tag shape and attach some twine (from my own stash).
Next cut two 1" x 6" strips of the chevron 'Flourishing Flowers' and stick down on either side of the layout approx. 0.5" in from each edge, and 3.25" from the bottom edge.
Cut a 10.25" x 6" piece of the white 'Dazzling Decor' paper, punch a note paper edge in one of the long edges and stick down.
Next cut 10" x 5.75" piece of the floral 'Flourishing Flowers' paper and layer up over the other papers.
I then added the die cut card that comes with Kit (Favourite) as I wanted to use it as part of the title.
Add one of the patterned border strips.
Mount a 6.5" x 4.5" photo onto a piece of the white 'Dazzling Decor' paper and stick down.
Take the tag that you prepared earlier, add your journaling and then tuck the tag into the opening in the top of the butterfly paper.
Embellish the layout with the matching stickers.
Add a title using the Thickers Alpha that come with the January Kit.
Pop on over to Niki's blog to see the two layouts that she has come up with this week. You can buy the Kit here for a limited time!
Thanks for looking!
