Kirei's Layout using the Feb Week 1 Kit 'Dream'

Friday, 3 February 2012

Hi Everyone,

This first kit for February is yummy! Lovely glittered papers in chocolate browns, teal and soft greens from the fab My Minds Eye 'Lost & Found 2' range. They were perfect for scrapping some of my sister's wedding pics and so nice that I got 2 x layouts done! I kept them pretty simple because the papers were so detailed I didn't want to lose any of that.

For my first layout I used the 'Dream' paper for my base. I then decided where I was going to place my 6" x 4" photo which was mounted onto the chocolate and teal Bazzill. I wanted to use a piece of the 'Dream' paper on my other layout so gutted a piece from behind where the photo would be going (being careful to leave enough for the photo to attach to!).


Once I had the photo attached I added my embellishments... at the bottom of the photo I layered some strips of Martha Stewart border punched chocolate Bazzill with some cream lace and pretty teal rose ribbon (both of these were from my stash).


I used a Martha Stewart heart punch to punch hearts from the chocolate Bazzill and a piece of the gutted 'Dream' paper and added those to the bottom left corner and top right corner of the photo. To these I added a few Prima flowers (similar available here), finished off with some buttons tied with cream thread (all from my stash).

Then it was just a title that was needed and for this I used the lovely Prima Alphabet Stickers that come with the Kit.

For my second layout I used the 'Everywhere' paper for my base (the glittered side of course!).


I wanted to feature the butterflies so decided to cut around the large brown one (on the left side of the paper) and the medium green one in the top right of the paper. You will need a sharp knife for this, make sure you only cut around the wings as you want them to stay attached to the paper! I took 2 x small pieces of the 'Dream' paper that I gutted from the first layout. With the houndstooth side up I stuck these on the otherside of the paper underneath each of the cut butterflies (make sure you don't get any glue on the open areas as the wings will not sit up).

Again the 6" x 4" photo was mounted onto the chocolate and teal Bazzill. I layered some strips of Martha Stewart border punched chocolate Bazzill at the bottom of the photo, and added a few Prima flowers from my stash (similar available here) to the bottom left corner and top right corner of the photo. Don't forget to finish them off with a button tied with cream thread (both from my stash).


I punched 3 x butterflies using the Martha Stewart punch from the piece of gutted 'Dream' paper and attached them to my layout.

Finally I used the Prima alphabet to create my title and I was finished!

This fab Kit is available at the Pages of Memories Online Store.

Thanks for looking!
