Merry Go Round - Amazing Adventure at Legoland - This page was designed using a photo of the girls on our first trip to Legoland back in 1997.
I started by gutting the Lagoon Bazzill, then trimming the Create Beauty paper to 29.5cm x 29.5cm and mounting it over the Lagoon frame.
I mounted my photos onto Arryo Bazzill and arranged them onto the page. Then with pencil I drew a swirl onto the paper. Next came the fussy cutting of letters from the Truly Grateful #3 paper. Starting just below the photos I arranged the letters along my pencil curves, sticking them down lightly with re-positional tape. I stitched the letters into place with grey sewing thread and the sewing machine.
I finished by adding the puffy star stickers, the opals and one of the chipboard quote stickers, all from the kit.
Terrific Trio - This layout features a photograph of a pencil drawing of the triplets, drawn by my father in 1995 when they were three years old.
The base for this layout is the sheet of white Bazzill. I cut the Dreaming paper so I was left with a piece 9 blocks deep and 12 blocks wide - I arranged the cutting from the gold, through orange, red and darker pink blocks, reserving the pale pink blocks to use later.
I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink to ink the edged of all the papers. I attached the large piece with the blocks towards the bottom of the Bazzill. I trimmed about 17 individual blocks and scattered them over the white area at the top of the layout.
I mounted my photo onto some Arroyo Bazzill and attached it to the centre of the layout.
With some greyboard and the Sizzix Bottled Up Bigz die, I cut a selection of different size bottles. Some of these were treated with acrylic paint and some crackle glaze. Two of them were coated with embossing powders.
With the Sizzix Bigz Die - Branches and some scraps of brown Bazzill I cut a selection of branche,using pieces of them to fit into the bottles. I then punched and created some cherry blossom with the 3 in 1 Hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart. I arranged these on the branches. The bottles were placed either side of the photo, some flat onto the page and others raised up with 3D foam.
I used another MS 3 in 1 punch to create some butterflies to scatter at the top of the page.
I added glitter to the butterflies to with Stickles. A spot of Nuvo Crystal Drops - Metallic Caramel Cream was added to the centre of each blossom.
My title was made with Pinkfresh Studio - Office Hours Puffy Alpha Stickers.
Thanks for looking, I will be back with more from this kit in a couple of weeks.
