Papermaze January Kit - Part 2

Lynn here today with my second pair of layouts made using the January's kit which is now available to buy from the shop or online. Vanessa has put together yet another beautiful collection, including exclusive knitwear stencil.

Both my layouts have photos of my nephew when he was a little boy.

Here is what is in the kit, for more details, please see the earlier Blog entry HERE and the shop -
January's kit.

You Are Amazing - This is one of a series of images taken by my father when doing a photo shoot in preparation for painting Mark's portrait.

All the cut edges of my papers were inked with Forest Moss Distress Ink.

I started with a sheet of white Bazzill as a base. With the 'Wonderful Things' paper cut a piece 15cm wide and 23cm deep from the script side. I arranged this 4cm in from the left 4cm down from the top, but didn't glue it in place at this stage. From what was left I cut the chevrons section of the paper and split this so I could place it either side of where the script paper will be placed. The chevrons were glued in place.

Then with a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and some texture paste, I created some randomly along the bottom of the paper, overlapping the cardstock. Once the past was dry, I sprinkled some Emerald Isle Infusions along the top and bottom of the page, then sprinkled the grains with water so they could create their magic!

I place the script paper in place and glued it down. 

From the scraps of Gather at Home '4 x 4 cards' paper I fussy cut fronds of leaves and arranged them so they run up the left side of the page. I added the 12 blue pearls from the kit and some flower stamen from my stash.

I placed my photo to the bottom left of the script paper.

Using the detail strip from the 'Wonderful Things' paper, I trimmed each phrase and mounted them onto the remaining scraps from the same sheet of paper. These were then placed in a row to the right of the layout.

My title was made with a phrase from AC Thickers, Color Study - The Details.  The name and date are Tiny Type alpha stickers.

Handmade Fun - Another layout for Mark - This time at Christmas, wearing a rainbow jumper I had knitted for him.

I loved both sides of the 'Simple Pleasures' paper, but decided to use the stripe side as it worked well with the colours of the jumper in the photo. 

I gutted the Amber Bazzill to make a border 2.5cm deep. I trimmed a sheet of Black Bazzill to measure 29.5cm x 29.5cm and gutted this to 2.5cm deep. The 'Simple pleasures paper was trimmed to 28.5cm x 28.5cm. These were mounted one on top of the other.

I cut a piece of white Bazzill to measure 22.5cm x 22.5cm, and with a selection of Distress Oxide Inks placed on a craft mat, spritzed with water and transferred to the cardstock with a piece of plastic bag. When this was dry I used the exclusive stencil and with a blending tool, stencilled more of the same Distress Oxide Inks onto the cardstock. I inked the edges of this piece and placed it to the right of the page.

I mounted my photo onto black Bazzill, then a scrap of 'Happiness Blooms' paper. This was placed to the left of the layout.

My title was created by cutting the letters twice and offsetting them. I used Black and Whirlpool Bazzill and a Sizzix BigzXL alpha die - Handmade. 

With the strips trimmed from the 'Simple Pleasures' paper, I mounted them on black Bazzill and used them to add details using some old Pinkfresh Studio Mini Puffy Alpha Stickers. These strips were trimmed and added to the layout. Finally I added two of the P13 Ephemera Tickets from the kit.

That's all from the January Kit, although I have plenty of bits left over to make something else.
Back with the February Kit soon.
Thanks for looking.
