Kirei's layout with the May Week 2 Kit: 'Sweet Pea'

Friday 11 May 2012

Hi Everyone!

This week's Kit was all mauves and soft greens with the pretty 'Lilac Avenue' papers from Kaisercraft.  I had a lovely photo of a family get together in 2010 with Lee and I, both of our parents and his nan. We took his nan to Sopwell House in St. Albans for dinner as she couldn't make it out to Las Vegas for our wedding. Unfortunately she passed away last year so this holds some very special memories for us.

I used the 'Sweet Pea' paper as the base for my layout. I then cut a couple of strips (1" x 12", 1" x 10") of the green Bazzill and border punched each of them. I wanted to use the frame side of the 'Snapdragon' paper so cut the centre out, and from this centre I cut a strip of the green vine 1" x 10". The 7" x 5" photo was firstly mounted onto a piece of lilac Bazzill, then a piece from the lilac spots side of the 'Snapdragon' paper and finally onto a piece of the green Bazzill. The final 1" x 12" strip was cut from the 'Wisteria' paper using the side with the flower border. The strips were all then layered up (look at the finished layout pic for details) before attaching the triple mounted photo.  The frame that I cut out earlier was then attached to the layout using foam pads to add dimension.

I added some embellishments by punching a variety of flowers and layering them up in the top right and bottom left corners of the photo. Use some of the pretty Kaisercraft brads that came with the Kit as centres for the flowers. A couple of punched photo corners in the lilac Bazzill were added to the photo and to finish off I added a title with the glittery American Crafts alpha that also came with the Kit.

This Kit is available for a short time from the Online Store.

Thanks for looking!
