I was sorting through piles of layouts and other scrappy stuff a couple of days ago. I discovered some layouts that I have possibly shared on FB but not here. I made them after I won some
" ScrapCake " papers on their blog
This page is made with the small 6x6 pads so there is a bit of mixing and matching of patterns to make it all come together. The collection is called My Private Happiness.The name is appropriate as I write about my youngest DD and that she has a mild and sweet disposition. At least until she gets to experience the teenage-moodswings ,..-just around the corner...LOL)
I used my Cheery Lynn doily dies and a craft knife in addition to my trusted sewing machine on this layout. I even used a Martha Stewart border punch.
With the craft knife I cut out the yellow lattice pattern. It took me quite some time as this was the first time I tried it. I loved the result!
Lots of pretty Prima flowers here and I made small 'leaves' with a pearl ribbon in a coral colour.
Many times I think a round picture packs quite a punch and makes for a layout that looks a little different. I am normally what I call a rather 'square' scrapper so it is nice to try something different .
On this occation the round pattern in the papers encouraged the shaped photos. I then raised the round picture using pop dots and even added some liquid pearls.
