I was thrilled when I saw the contents of this month's kit! Lots of Pink Paislee's/Paige Evans 'Bloom Street' collection and also some products from Shimelle's 'Never Grow Up' collection. I love all collections designed by Paige Evans and this collection was on top of my wish list! Here's the layout for which I wrote the little step-by-step:
I got started by displaying the entire kit on my desk and the photo I wanted to use:
Paper 10 stood out immediately and so my decision to go with that paper was made very quickly. I got out my craft knife and cut several diamond shapes from this paper:
At least one diamond shape had to be large enough to be placed behind my photo:
I organised all the shapes on a white cardstock paper to determine a design for my layout:
Before adhering all these diamond shapes I got out my pink stamping ink and Nuvo blender brush and colored the background paper in a subtle pink shade:
Next I adhered all the shapes:
and glued a long pink machine thread on top:
The matted photo, a journaling card and a flower die-cut & word die-cut came next:
The journaling card needed a bit of machine stitching:
Now I just added a few more stickers and die-cuts, like this sun die-cut:
These two beautifully colored word stickers:
Another word die-cut with beautiful foiled accents:
And I added some extra flowers as one can never have enough flowers!
With a few paint drops and a written date my layout was done! Hope you like it!
