Scrap For Help March challenge. Inkido 'Beautiful memories'.

For the PaperHaus Spring Fling hop scroll down a couple of posts!!

Hi, I cannot believe how fast time flies!!
 Already nearly a week into the month of March... This month is widely regarded as the beginning of Spring in these parts, and I may say it is a bit hopeful actually. The days are getting longer and the light is returning. It's great!

Today I want to show you what I made for the March challenge at Scrap For Help.



The design team has been using both burlap and gauze so I think that would be ok!

I made this page with the new collection from Inkido called 'Beautiful Memories' a feminine and lovely collection full of pretty elements to fussy cut and combine.


Here are some close ups of some of my details and of the pretty flowers and other embellishments that I have used. I used a Spellbinders die for the circles and some scalloped scissors to cut out the round mat for my photo.


The challenge said to use gauze, and so I did. I cut small square pieces of the fabric and sprayed it with mist. After it dried i pulled loose the threads and made little 'nests' with them. I then added these to different areas of my page as embellishments to compliment the flowers.


This wouldn't be a layout by me unless I added some stiches to it  here and there....
I added some texture to the die cut rounds by going backwards and forwards a few times with the sewing machine over the cardstock.


I fussy cut plenty of pretty butterflies in different sizes and added a tiny blue chrystal to them.
They are flying all over my page at the moment :-)


Here are a few of the pretty papers I used:







That's all for now. Enjoy the rest of your day!! <3
Hugs!
