Hi this is another summer page from a day out in the Isle of Wight. This is easy peasy. Just take your patterned paper and trim off a quarter inch all around and ink the edges. Matt onto plain cardstock.
Crop your photo into an oval and matt twice. Adhere to centre of page. Add a journaling block. Add title. Decorate with flowers, pearls, die cuts etc and thats it. Thanks for looking.

Hi I have just completed this one from a photo of my d.hubby that I have had hanging around since February - not really knowing what to do with it. Im so used to doing girly pages. Then when I saw this sketch from SCRAP THAT I knew it would fit the bill. So I used dotty paper because Phillip is wearing a dotty tie! Then planned the colours around the photo. Then followed the sketch. Added a title and that was me done.

For this one I used a template to cut out a shaped border and matted it onto cardstock. I matted my photo then added a larger pink mat and placed a doily underneath. I inked all the edges. I added a journaling block, decorated with flowers and gems and added a swirl with some puffy paint. Then added the title. Hope you like it.

This layout was created using a sketch by Gabby - Such a Pretty Mess - for Bo Bunny
I used paper by Prima from the Sparkling Spring collection.
I matted my photo. Cut out 3 outher mats with squiggly scissors including 2 circles
and inked the edges. I made two shaped peices of paper for behind the photo.
I added two borders, one down the side and one along the bottom.
I added a swirly corner, top right. I added lace trim to the borders
I cut out some butterflies and added pearls to them.
I added some flowers and pearls. I kept the colour scheme simple, just pastels. Hope you like it.

Today I am still working on my summer pictures. This one was a day trip to the Isle of Wight.
To put this one together I used a template to cut out the main design. Then matted that onto  backing paper. Matt your photo. I like to ink the edges so they stand out a bit more. Im into doilys at the moment so used another doily in the back of my photo. I then added a pink border. I used some Prima packaging to go on top of my pink border. I added a prima melody journaling box and chipboard sticker. Then I just decorated with lots of flowers and gems plus a die cut dragonfly and a couple of small swirls. Hope you like it. thanks for looking.

85 Birthday Wishes

So this is a good layout to try if you are a beginner.
Start with a 12x12 background cardstock.
Take a 2nd peice and use decorative scissors to cut about a quarter inch off all the way around and ink the edges. Matt onto the 12x12 card. Mount two photos then mount again. Add a decorative border at the bottom. Add flowers, dragonflies, tags, die cut leaves, pearls and gems. Add a doily under the photos and a title. (I love purple and green together).
Et voila - done.
