Niki's layout using February 2 Kit 'Window View'

Thursday 9 February 2012

Hi All

Here is my layout using the gorgeous 'Window View' kit released yesterday:

Yep, another picture of my little one! (She'll hate me for this when she's older!)

Because I decided to use one of the framed papers as my background, space was a bit limited on the page but I wanted to use as many of the patterns as possible so put together those small squares on the right which did the job perfectly.

I also wanted to keep the clock on the top right so carefully cut round it with a craft knife and tucked my layout underneath it.

I added some faux stitching around each of the squares to give the effect they had been sewn together (you could get the same effect with a pen) and added one of the chipboard stickers and some lace (to the bottom right square - you can hardly see it in the picture but it is there!)

I then created a cluster of embellishments in the bottom right corner using the remaining trims and some more of the chipboard stickers.  The trims are held in place with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher  stapler which always seems to come in very handy!

Lastly I added a title using leftover alphabet stickers from a previous kit (Garden Gate).

Overall I was quite pleased with it. I chose to focus on the pinks in the kit but you could just as easily focus on the blues for a different effect altogether!

Thanks for looking xx
