Hello, Karen C here today with my first layout using the beautiful Belle Fleur collection from Photoplay.
I started with a sheet of the Pretty Peonies paper and from the middle, using my paper trimmer, I carefully cut a 10" x 10" square. The 10" x 10" square was then put back into the hole after turning it over so the B side showed. The square of paper was then gutted before a piece of white Bazzill cardstock, which I had splatted with some pink watercolour paint, was stuck on top.
On the white cardstock I layered pieces of the Pretty Peonies (B side) paper, Choose Happy (B side) paper and You're Just my Type (B side) paper. I machine stitched with white thread round the edges of the papers.
A 5x7 photo of my daughter was matted on white cardstock and placed on the layout using 3D foam with a white doilie tucked underneath the left edge.
I added some white lace to the bottom of the photo and a brad from Simple Stories Domestic Bliss collection was added to the bottom right corner. A clear heart sticker from my stash was stuck onto the brad.
I created an emelishment cluster on the left corner of the photo using some flowers fussy cut from a sheet of the Hello Gorgeous paper , some heart shaped pins, a die cut butterfly and a bow made from a scrap of paper.
I used chipboard words for my title.
Near the top of the layout I added some banners cut from the patterned papers, a scrap of lace, some words cut from the You're Just my Type paper and an enamel dot.
The layout was completed with a few more enamel dots and journalling strips printed on the computer.
This collection is so pretty and girly. Pop along to the shop to see the full collection and all the other beautiful supplies for scrapbooking, cardmaking and much, much more
