Kirei's layout with the April Wk 4 Kit - 'Train'

Friday, 27 April 2012

Hi Everyone!

We had some lovely glittery papers from My Minds Eye to work with for this week's Kit and one of them had a vintage train image which made me think they would be perfect for a boy layout. I actually set up some photos of our godson with a toy train but when I tried them with the papers they were just not right! So back to the drawing board... I have plenty of photos to scrap so I ended up using some cute ones of my friend Andrea's little boy Joe that were perfect.

I used the glitter spot side of the 'Boyish' paper for my base and decided to cut around the edges of the glittered title in the lefthand corner so that I could pop the photos under it. Cut carefully round the edges from the 'D' in 'Delightful' to the 'L' (going around the top only and leaving the bottom edge attached).

I then cut a 9" x 12" piece of the brown Bazzill which I border punched along the long edges.  I then gutted a section from the middle of the glitter spot 'Boyish' paper that would be hidden underneath the brown Bazzill.Then I cut a 7" x 8.5" piece of the striped 'Precious' paper which I attached to the right side of the brown Bazzill. From the piece of glitter spot 'Boyish' paper (that I gutted from the base for my layout) I cut a few strips of the crowns and this was attached to the top and bottom of the brown Bazzill. You will need to piece some lengths together as they won't be 12" long. I attached my two photos (6" x 4" and 7" x 5" trimmed down) and then attached the whole section to the glitter spot 'Boyish' paper that I am using as the base for my layout. Don't forget to tuck it under the corner title that you cut our earlier.

To finish off I cut the train from the 'Precious' paper and attached this to the bottom of my two photos, slightly overlapping the title block. From my stash I added a couple of buttons tied with twine.

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

Thanks for looking!
