Waiting for St Nick

I love the new Bo Bunny 'Tis the Season paper range so much that I decided to create a layout using some of the fab patterned paper.

I started with 'Traditions' patterned paper (reverse side) and gutted out the middle.  I layered this with some white cardstock and then 'Peace' patterned paper. The photograph was matted onto some 'Traditions' patterned paper (reverse side) and a section of 'Ornaments' patterned paper. The 'St Nick' sentiment was cut from 'Ornaments' paper and makes up part of my title.


I fussy cut out images from the 'Traditions' patterned paper and arranged them along the bottom edge of the matted photograph, and top left of the layout using foam tape to add dimension. The remainder of the title is made with Simply Creative White Glitter Alphabet and Number Stickers.  The glitter snowflakes are from my own stash.

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment.

Handsome

This is the second layout I have created using this month's Mad Scrappers Club Kit. The kit contains patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Barber Shoppe' range along with Vanilla, Black and Powder Blue cardstock, Die-cut Mechanism paper and a selection of wooden cog shapes.


I used the Vanilla and Black cardstock as the base. I gutted out the middle of the black cardstock for matting the photograph. I layered this with the 'Razor' patterned paper and a piece of the Die-cut Mechanism paper. I cut out some of the cards from 'Shave' patterned paper and layered up as shown:


I matted the photograph onto black cardstock, added the words, 'Handsome' and 'Authentic Memories' taken from 'Shave' patterned paper. I inked the wooden cog shapes with black ink and then a metallic ink to give an aged look. I finished off by adding faux stitching around the outside of the patterned paper.

 
It's our monthly Mad Scrappers Club tonight - see you all later ladies. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by.

Cherish Sweet Memories

This is one (of two) layouts I have created with this month's Mad Scrappers Club Kit. This month the kit contains patterned papers from Kaisercraft 'Barber Shoppe', along with coordinating cardstock, Die-cut Mechanism paper and a selection of Kaisercraft Wooden Cog Shapes. I scraplifted this design from a layout on the Kaisercraft Blog by Alicia McNamara.


I used Kaisercraft 'Comb' patterned paper for the base and gutted out the middle. This was layered with Powder Blue Kaisercard. I added some splatters of black acrylic paint and some black lines around the edge of the card before layering this with a piece of the Die-cut Mechanism paper.


I then added a piece of torn 'Comb' patterned paper, tucking a doily (cut in half) to the top and bottom of the paper. I then added my photograph, which was matted onto a piece of 'Comb' paper (used reverse side).
 

 
To finish I added some Kaisercraft Wooden Cog Shapes, Clear Stickers, Black Arrow Washi Tape and sentiments cut from the patterned papers. The Clear Stickers and doily were from my own stash and the Black Arrow Washi Tape was from a previous Mad Scrappers Kit. I also added a bit of bling (Prima gems).
 
Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment. I will post the second layout I created soon.
