Papermaze March Kit - Part 2

Lynn here today with the second post using the very pretty March kit from Papermaze. Both these layouts feature photos from my daughter's wedding.

Before we look at the process of making the pages, here is a reminder of what you will find in the kit - please see this post for more details.

Celebrate Together
- The photo for this layout shows 18 month old Scarlett, with her Mum and Dad at the wedding.

I started by building up the background with patterned papers from the kit. I used the stripe side of 'Rainbow' paper left over from a previous layout. This is roughly 8cm wide and cut with a wavy curve along one edge. With 'It's A Girl Floral' I followed the shape of the wave and cut a narrow strip about 3cm wide and used this floral side up, I tucked this up closely to the stripe paper. Then I flipped the 'It's A Girl Floral' paper over and used the pink ombre side to cover the rest of the page.

I flicked some Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Rich Gold and some white Distress Paint over the ombre paper. 

I set the sewing machine to blanket stitch, and with dark green thread, worked around the outside and along the wavy edges of the papers.

I gutted the Rain Forest Bazzill, to made a 2.5cm frame and set this aside for later. Then my photo was mounted onto white card and then Rain Forest. I raised this with foam and arranged it onto the page. 

I created two floral clusters with flowers fussy cut from the scraps of the floral paper. I added Rain Forest Bazzill fronds, cut using Sizzix Tim Holtz, Funky Floral Thinlits die sets. To this I added the two prima flowers from the kit together with a few tiny flowers from my own stash. The curio from the kit was placed on the lower cluster. 

The title is made from a Paige Evans Ephemera word and a die cut word using Blossom Bazzill and Simple Stories Say Cheese 4 Happy Words metal die set.

Finally I added a sprinkling of sequins. 

Welcome - This layout features the three pallets I decorated for my daughter's wedding, Welcoming and giving the day's information to our guests.

I used the 2.5 deep gutted rainforest Bazzill from earlier, as a border for this layout. I trimmed the 'All is Calm' paper to 29cm x 29cm and from the centre I cut a 20cm circle. The pink side was placed over the border and the circle was flipped over and popped back into position to show the floral side.

My photos were trimmed with white and then Rain Forest Bazzill, and arranged onto the page.

I trimmed the diameter of the circle with glittery white zic-rac. Then the title was arranged in place with glittery white foam alpha stickers.

Thats all for today, back soon.
Thanks for looking.
