'Memories' using the new Inkido 'Beautiful Memories 2'

A few days ago I received the new collection from Inkido in the mail. I love the new colours they have come up with, and all is made to mix and match perfectly with the previous release 
'Beautiful Memories'.

Here is my first lo with the new papers:
(I noticed  there's a little fly that wanted to be in the shot,...can you see it?)

And of course the usual lot of close ups,...-if you get bored just scroll on down... :-)

A short while ago I bought my new toy from Cassie at Paper Issues
Yup, I am now the proud owner of a brand new Silhouette Cameo.  
I was a bit worried that I would find the learning process a bit tedious and just leave it in the box more or less, but that has not been the case. Together with my 12 year-old I unpacked it and installed it and it was actually not hard at all. I imagine it will take some time before I feel I can grasp all the details and possibilities but I can already do many of the things I wanted it for!!

( Remember that using my code BENTE20 will take 20% off the price at checkout at PI. )

I based my page on several layers. 
All the papers I layered  are from the new Inkido collection called 'Beautiful Memories 2'.
I have mainly used the beige group of papers here as well as one of the pink ones.
The first layer got some gesso and a lick of paint around the edges. I used one of my fave Martha Stewart large punches on layer number two. And finally for my third background sheet I arrived at using my new Cameo toy. cut out a grid on almost a whole sheet of paper. I think that is so neat!!

Even the title was cut with my new electronic toy and I love the way it turned out. 
The titles were actually one of the main reasons I started looking into buying one.

A couple of more close ups of the pretty Inkido products. 
I have added a few Prima flowers here but the majority of the flowers are from Inkido. 
And I also added some of their bling stones in pink.

I am also entering this into the challege to use doilies on your project at Little Red Wagon.

I hope you liked my page and thanks for any friendly messages you may leave me :-)
