June kit from Swirlydoos. I really want to finish doing the layouts for the fairy/vampire pics I did of my daughter and her friend. Most of the stuff I used is from the Swirlydoos June kit called Antebellum Beauty. Click on the link above to see it..it's gorgeous!!
I laid burlap underneath the paper first and used Smooch to dot around the edges. I made the fairy embellie using Memory Glass, and the hinges are from Tim Holtz (of course!)
Come away oh human child,
To the waters and the wild..
With a Faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand~
I love the Cameo/butterfly pin that came with the kit. It is gorgeous!

One of her colors is this beautiful blue and I had such a hard time trying to match it with the perfect paper. I still didn't get it exact, but it's pretty close. As soon as the new June kit from Swirlydoos came in..I knew it'd be the best bet for this layout.
I used UTEE on the paper butterflies to make them sturdy. Added pearls for edging, and found the sheet music for their wedding song online and used that as a background to add something special. I bunched up some netting too and added some bling on the bottom. I used a ribbon piece from Websters Life's Portrait collection that reads " believe in the beauty of your dreams"
Thanks for stopping by and till next time..Happy Scrappin!!

Graphic 45 is having a Renaissance Faire May Madness contest on their site. You must use the Ren Faire pp for your project. This is one of my favorite lines from G45. It's so rich and warm in color..beautiful!
I started by cutting and distressing the edges of my first pp, Enlightened. I then inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. For the next layer, I cut a sheet of Florentine, distressed the edges just a bit and inked some more.
I used Tim Holtz "Hanging Sign" Die Cut to tie to the next piece of this beautiful paper. I cut out a part of the Renaissance Faire paper, used some more Vintage Photo ink, and used twine to tie it to the sign.
I used several layers of different ribbon and cut out branches from my Cricut. I made the flowers by myself and added them to the branches.
Made another flower out of burlap, twine and scraps of Awakening paper. Added some hinges to the photo. The photo is doubled. I used a 4x6 on the bottom and laid a 3x5 on top. Used pop up glue dots for dimension.
I really loved making this layout. Graphic 45 is in my top 3 papers. If you're interested in being a part of the contest or just looking for some wonderful vintage paper...click here.
I thank you for stopping by and hope you get inspired to create something wonderful today!!
Till next time...Happy Scrappin!

I finally got my hands on some of the pretty Prima paper I've been wanting!! I have to say that Prima paper is in my top 3 of faves...along with Websters and G45 of course:)
I've been working on this layout for a couple of days. I wanted to make it for my son and his girlfriend..it's a picture of them when they went to Prom this last month. This is just a snapshot she took of them together before Prom started..I thought it was really cute!
I used lots of Prima on this..from paper, decorative stones to flowers to the floral strip on the bottom. I covered the pic with some netting from my dear scrapping friend Maggi and glued little baby roses to the ends.
Glad that you stopped by and I hope you've been inspired, if even a little, to create something!!
Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!
