Kirei's layout with the April Wk 2 Kit: Cornwall

Friday 13 April 2012

Hi Everyone!

This week's Kit had some of the very pretty Prima 'Pixie Glen' papers to work with along with a fab alpha from My Minds Eye. I had a sweet photo of my friend Andrea and her little boy Joe that I thought would go perfectly.... who says you can't use pink for boys! The page in itself is pretty straightforward, it is just the cutting out that I decided to do! One of the papers had a whole side of different elements that you could cut out and I think I decided to use half of them!

To start with I gutted the pink Bazzill leaving a 1.5" border. I decided to use the pale blue framed/pale pink centre Prima 'Chip-A-Twitter' paper as my base and trimmed off just under 1/2" from each side (don't forget to remove the manufacturers strip first!). The edges were distressed with a distressing tool (you can get the same effect with a pair of scissors). This was then attached to the pink Bazzill. I trimmed my 7" x 5" photo down as I wanted to remove the distracting elements from the photo but you could just as easily use a variety of sizes with this layout.

I then cut out a variety of the elements from the Prima 'Pyske Cuts' paper that I thought I wanted to use, you could select as many or as little as you want! I used the beading strip from the paper along with one of the sayings as a border to the bottom of my photo. The other elements were then layered up (some on foam pads) in the top left corner and bottom right corner along with the flowers that came with the Kit. I had some of the 'Pixie Glen' chipboard pieces leftover from a previous Kit so I used one of those and I did dip into my own stash for some buttons and twine to go with the flowers.

To finish off I added my title with the fuzzy felt like 'Lush' alphas!

You can purchase this Kit at the Pages of Memories Online Store for a limited time.
Thanks for looking!
