Introducing 'The Scrap Cake' papers...

I have just fallen in love with some new papers Vanessa has in the shop and online from The Scrap Cake! As soon as I saw them I knew they were right up my street, although they are super versatile too. This post will be showcasing the 'One moment In Time' papers, and a second post soon will feature the 'My Private Happiness' and 'The Bright side of Life'

I have created two completely differnt layouts with the 'One Moment In Time' designs. The shades all go perfectly with White or Kraft cardstock.

For this Layout I wanted to mix the pinks and blues, but as the patterns on the papers are light and quite pale, I choose to add shapes with my layers. I used a cuttlebug and some Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut the scalloped circles, a large circle punch and some Technique Tuesday circles for the smaller shapes.

Have you ever wished you'd stamped a background before you stuck your embellishments down? I did here, so I simply took the printed acetate sheet you get in with a clear stamp, and cut the design out from that. I used glossy accents to stick it down and it looks just like you've perfectly stamped your page!

My second page highlights how well these papers can be used for a baby themed page (check out those gorgeous blue eyes!!)
Besides framing the photo, I didn't use the papers as blocks, but instead made all of my embellishments from them. I punched, diecut and fussy cut shapes.

This handmade flower below is made using a Nellie Snellen Floral Punch, which embosses the petals once the are punched to add extra dimension to your flowers.

I dotted Baby Blue Liquid Pearls around to bring out the blue of the frame around the photo.

So there are my first two pages I created using the Scrap Cake papers. Check back later to see some more!
