Kirei's layout with the April Wk 3 Kit 'Decorate'

Friday, 20 April 2012

Hi Everyone!

I love the 'Miss Caroline' range from My Minds Eye so was very happy when they turned up in this week's Kit! I loved the faux wood panelled 'Happy Decorate' paper so decided that was going to be the base for my layout.

Firstly I cut around some of the flowers and leaves in the top left and bottom right corners as I wanted to slip some of the papers underneath them later. Then I cut a piece measuring 4.5"x 10" from the 'Baby' paper and a piece 5" x 9.5"from the 'Happy Beach Stripe' paper. The edges of both pieces were distressed with an edging tool and then I tied some twine (from my stash) around the spotty piece. These were both then stuck down (at an angle) to the base paper.

I cut a number of strips of varying lengths: 1" x 7" of the 'Happy Beach Stripe', 1/2" x 8" and 1 3/4" x 8"of the 'Baby' paper. I border punched the 1 3/4" x 8" strip and then layered them all up at the bottom of the layout, just tucking the ends in under the yellow flower.

The 7" x 5" photo was trimmed down and mounted onto the pink Bazzill, and then stuck down onto the layout tucking the bottom right corner under the flower. I added a button (tied with twine) from the fab embellishment pack that came with the Kit, and attached it with a glue dot to the centre of the twine tied round the spotty panel on the layout. I punched a variety of butterflies and attached them to my layout with Glossy Accents (it dries quickly and holds them nice and firm!). For the main butterfly I layered up two of them, attached some pearls for the body and used two of the cute pins for antennae! This was attached with foam pads to the bottom left of the photo.

To finish off I used some alphas from my stash for the title.

This Kit is available for a limited time from the Pages of Memories Online Store.

Thanks for looking!
