Extra Bazzill Pack: Date Swirl, Wisteria, Parakeet & Pastel Blue
first layout was made using the Prima 'Forget Me Not' paper. I decided
to place a photo into each wreath, and embellish the printed flowers and
leaves with die cuts.
of all I placed a length of 3.5cm deep, white, lace across the page, at
an angle, between the two wreaths. Over this I added a length of 12mm
pale blue, seam binding ribbon. which I tied in a bow to the right side.
Over this i placed some 9mm purple grosgrain ribbon, which I secured in
place with a few tiny stitches.
I mounted the photos onto the Pastel Blue Bazzill, and used Walnut Stain Distress Ink
to edge the photos and the mounts. After working out where the photos
would sit, I used a craft knife to cut around any petals and leaves that
would otherwise be half hidden by the photos. I inked the edges of
these, tucked the photos into place with the leaves and petals
overlapping the photos.
Using the Tim Holtz, Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Brushstroke Flowers #2,
I cut leaves and petals using Bazzill from the kit and additional
scraps from my stash. I inked these pieces, created the flowers and
arranged them around the wreaths to compliment those printed on the
I added the three mini flowers from the kit. I added a touch of sparkle to the flower centres with Nuvo Glitter Drops - Silver Crystals. I also scattered clear gems around the wreaths.
used one of the chipboard tags from the kit to add the title 'SISTERS',
and tied this with another piece of the blue ribbon. I also added the
sister's names using the Tim Holtz, Sizzix Thinlits Die Sets -
Alphanumeric Tiny Type - Upper and Lower.Georgina and Henry
made a frame of 2.5cm by gutting the sheet of Secret Garden #6. Over
this I mounted the Foundations Plum Grove paper, after tearing off the
edges of the sheet. This paper has had the multimedia effect already
printed onto it, but I decided to add some stencilling as well. I used a
stencil from Vicki Boutin's Colour Study Fresh collection and Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks.
the remains of the #6 paper, I tore a double mount for the photo, using
both sides of the paper. From the same paper I cut two wreaths, using
Time Holtz, Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Funky Wreaths. I cut one in half and placed it either side of the photo and the other I placed at the base of the photo.
I embellished the wreathes with the Fanciful Gemstones and one of the chipboard elements from the kit.
used the P13 phrase stickers and picked a few of the gardening phrases
to add across the layout. I tied two of the kit tags to the wreath to
add the names. The names and date were made with more scraps of Bazzill
cardstock and Tim Hotlz, Sizzix Thinlits Sets - Alphanumeric Upper and
Lower Tiny Type.
That's all for today, but there are more layouts from this kit, which I will share with you soon.
Thanks for looking.
