Pretty as a picture

Welcome to another month it is getting closer and closer to Christmas.
I think the older you get the quicker the year goes. 

Today I have created another layout for you using the chipbpoard from
Memory Maze

And yes another beautiful photo of my Grand daughter Zarna Rose.

I cut down the white cardstock so it measures 11 1/2 inches square, 
then I used an edge distresser and distressed the edges.
Tape this onto the pattern paper.

I used a circle stencil form Memory Maze and the lilac spray, 
then I added the texture paste over the top using the same mask.
Let this dry then spray on some of the snow angle spray.
Let this dry and stamp using a script stamp and pink ink all around your layout.
I have cut pieces from the 6 1/2 inch paper pad, using three pink coloured papers.
Tape these down you might have to use some glue as the tape may not stick well to the mixed media on the layout.
I have added a flower border from the sticker sheet as well also some lace.
Add your flowers and leaves.
Now for the frame it is pretty easy I just covered it with some pink ink. You might have to give this a few coats to get the effect you want.
I aslo added a phrase from the sticker sheet as well.

Beautiful little Princess

Once again it is my reveal for Off the Rails Scrapbooking
we had a very pretty mood baord to follow this month

November mood board

I got my hands a bit dirty with this one.

And this is how I created the background. I firstly brushed clear gesso to the white cardstock.
Then using the sprays, spray in different spots and the spray with water to make it move.
I then used some paper towel and daubed it moving the colour around the page. 
Dry with a heat gun I couldn't wait.
Using a diamond mask and texture paste place around where your photo will sit.
I used blue stazon and a script stamp and daubed arond the page, y texture paste was still a bit wet so it soaked up the colour.

I added a large crochet doily to the background
 and placing my scraps of papers where I wanted them.
Then add your photo and gently stamp around the edges with some black stazon and a stitch stamp.
I have also used a small doily stamp and purple ink and stamped around the background.

White and purple cardstock
clear gesso
Sei tumble dry spray inks - pink, blue, orange, yellow and purple
Diamond mask and texture paste

Note Book

Hi everyone today I am bringing you another tutorial for
Memory Maze

I need to make a start on my Christmas presents so I thought I would share this one with you all.
I have some 6x8 1/4 inch note books in my mighty stash
 and I have also used the October kit from Paper flourish

Using the two sheets of the Kaisercraft Ooh lala Collection Belle papers.
Cover the outside of your book and also the inner sides of the book.

I cut three bunches of flowers from the C'est la vie papers laid the white doiley down first then the largest of the flowers over the top.

The butterfly dreams chipboard piece I painted well with white gesso. 
And used Tim Holtz distress stains I daubed over the top.
 The ripe persimmon is a very strong colour so I daubed some of the colour off
 just to tone it down.
When these are dry (I used a heat gun to hurry up the drying process)
 I went over the top with some dimensional magic. 
When dry glue onto the top of the flower and doiley and to add some dimension to the flowers I raised them up with some foam tape. 
I then added the word phrase and from my Memory Maze stash box of bits and pieces added some butterflies and a heart ornament.
I did the same as above to colour these.

You Make Me Happy

Welcome  everyone.
 Today I have created my very first layout for
Just Add Flair
This small company makes beautiful Flair Buttons for all occasions
just go to the facebook page and follow the link to the shop you won't be disappointed.

Today I have created a layout using a precious photo of my new Grand daughter Zarna Rose.
I have put the layout in a frame to be put on my wall.

I firstly cut an 8x8 inch frame from the pink cardstock.
 You do this by placing your cardstock in your cutter so you have the edge of your cardstock on the 2 inch mark. Then by measuring and cutting from the 2 inch mark up to the 10 inch mark. Turn each side and repeat this another 3 times.  And you will be able to pull out a 8x8 inch piece of cardstock from the middle. 
Cut 1/2 inch from two sides of your paper, your paper will now measure 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches then use an edge distresser around the edges of the cardstock and the paper. Then tape the paper onto the cardstock so you will have a little pink border showing around each edge.
 It is hard to see with the edge of layout in the frame but it is there.

I have used a background stamp and ink and stamped around the outside of where your photo is going to go. 
Then using a butterfly mask and texture paste to create your background.
I have used the collectables from the kit I purchased from Kitaholics also some of the embellies from the embellishment pack.
 I used two pink doileys, cut one in half and placed under the photo, the photo is raised with foam tape.I you don't have the right colour doiley you can always spray them.
I have used one of the flair buttons from the Gabrielle collection.
