Guest Designer at Your Scrapbook Stash. Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue

A while back I was lucky enough to be asked by Erica at Your Scrapbook Stash to be a guest designer there this month.
I received a gorgeous kit filled with "Pink Paislee" "Vintage Vogue" goodness and also some sweet papers and stickers from the "Simple Stories" "Baby Steps" line.

I dug right into my parcel and picked some Pink Paislee to start with.

The colours here look so pretty together and makes me think of a fifties ice cream parlour or an old fifties movie. The colours are quite pastel, but I find they work well for both boys and girls.
On this layout I used the rosettes and the spool buttons as well as the ephemera.
The wooden alphabet that was included in my kit is adorable and so easy to paint or mist in any shade that you like.-Or you can keep it plain.... On my first page I decided to use acrylic paint to make it pink.

In this close up you get a better view of one of the rosettes.
I added a spool button on top and some bling.

And here you can appreciate that alphabet better .
You can still see the wood through the paint. 
As a base for my title I used one of the banners.            

The second layout I would like to share today is one of my little nephew. He sis such a cutie and alöways up to mischief.
Like a typical little boy he finds his "toys" everywhere.

I cut out a rounded piece from the paper with the letter pattern and picked some of the many pretty flags/banners from the ephemera pack. I cut them in half and stuck them underneath my shaped paper. Then I went for my buttons jar. I added amall buttons all along the edge for a happy look.

This time I used some mist to color the wooden title.
In my kit I even received some pink and lilac twine.
I decided the lilac one would go well with my colours here and decided to write part of my title with it. It turned out pretty cool I think, except I wish I had done it a bit bigger as it was a bit tricky!

One last close up and you have seen it all...

Thanks for dropping by. Your visits mean a lot to me!!
