BasicGrey Lemonade

I just fell in love with this new basic grey paper collection. I was sent some of the papers, plus the sticker die cuts and I've acheived two layout using a lot of paper folding!



CUTE AS A BUTTON

steps

1 start off by cutting two strips of paper as shown placing them to the left hand side of the card stock

2 add a third strip to the right hand side of the card stock and place two identical photos on top as shown

3 using a crafters stitching template stitch two circles one overlapping the photos and the other about 4 cms wider

4 cut about four strips of the green paper about 1cm and pleat around the circle using your stitching as a guide line

5 then go round this circle using buttons as shown

6 repeat the pleating of the patterned paper on the outside of the circle this time add bobble ribbon to the inside as shown

7 finish the layout adding the title.




PUCKER UP


steps

1 cut three strips of patterned papers and layer onto card stock as shown

2 using the sticker flourish place to the left hand side of the card stock as shown using 3d foam pads for more dimension add two strips of ribbon

3 use 3d foam pads to raise your photo then place this over the flourish

4 add title and a few brads using 3d gel pen go around your photo and over your lettering for more detail

5 finish off by making the two paper folded flowers for the right hand side of the photo.

Love these LO's Stephanie. I love the way you graded the button sizes around the circle, as well as your flowers. May need to use this idea some time, it that's ok with you. Such great papers too.
