Hi, Here is a layout Ive just finished using the sketch from Once Upon A Sketch with one of my pumpkin photos. The butterfly and flowers are Prima and Petaloo. The paper is Little Sprout by Fancy Pants. I couldnt wait to start these photos. Another easy peasy page. Just layer and add your embellies. Can you see all the little pumpkin faces? Ive used a doilly again to pick out the white in the photo to tone down all the orange. Im not a great lover of orange but think it works quite well with the green and the white. Thanks for looking.BFN.

Hi, here is a page I've done using Bo Bunny - Gabrielle papers.
I love all things butterfly so knew as soon as I saw these I'd find a good use for them. Here I used a few layers to build up the page.  So, start with the background paper and work up. I used a template for the scalloped border and inked the edges. I cut a circle in the butterfly paper then hand cut a brown border. I used the pink from the photo for the photo mat and used a journaling block for the title.  I then added some prima flowers and a handmade flower vine and sone die cut leaves. I cut out and glittered some butterflies to finish off and added the title. BFN Carole.

Hi,  this is the other layout I did with lace. I chose a lovely background paper with has script all over it and added a cutout template in  a pretty purple. I cut free hand to make the dark purple shaped mat underneath.  I used a lace doily that I spritzed with glimmer mist in the top right hand corner. I made a lace border with a punch, around the photo. then I added a side border in cream. I then added another punched border on the bottom left and added some real lace on top which finished framing the photo. I then added a handmade vine, flowers, more dragonflies and some pearls. Last but not least I put on the Title. I just need to add some journaling and thats done. A pretty lacy page.

  • I  wanted to do a page where I used lots of lace. So here it is. I cut out my background paper with a template and matted my photo 4 times.
  • I added lace around the edges of my mats. I made a lace flower and added a lace trim border under the title PARTY. I also added a paper doily under the badge - Traditions -  and pulled lace through the sides.  I addded flowers leaves and dragonflies. I added the title and a couple of journaling mats under the photo. the papers are Bo Bunny - Gabrielle.
