#So Sweet Layout | Shop and Crop

Hi there,
Happy Wednesday today I'm sharing a layout using one of my NeatNCraftyCutz cutfiles 
And I've taken a few photos of how I added the patterned paper to the back of the cutfile cut

I started by adding a border behind my white cardstock
I added machine stitching around the edge


I added the green patterned paper behind for the leaves
I fussy cut heaps of flowers out and popped them on pop dots

After added all the leaves I used double sided foam tape and popped it up
Away from the cardstock and did the same to the flowers 

Here is my cut file I used for this layout 

You can find it here 

I layered the flowers in a bunch

And layered patterned paper and a bit of vellum that I die cut with a doily die
And I added my title a simple layout with lots of wow!

Sweet Layout | Colour Blast

Hi everyone,
Anita Here sharing a layout and process video with you of how i created 
my layout.. when i started my layout i was thinking i wanted the colours of the mediums to blend with the colours of my patterned paper..

 and whats good about the colour Blast colour paste's are that you can blend them with other mediums like , gesso , texture paste , modelling paste and impasto, a clear gesso
and they are more of a lighter colour ... 
so the colours that i chose to use was Tangereen Dream and Singin the Blues and i knew it would be to dark using it just on its own so i mixed it with Modelling paste

mind you i did have a little miss hap with the second time applying the mixed Tangareen Dream and the modelling paste at the bottom of my layout .. and you will see in my video just how i take the focus off that little miss hap with blending it with embelishments  

Here is my process video 

i hope ive inspired you you give it a try the next time you have a little miss hap
when using mediums 

Product used

Thanks for popping by, I hope you have enjoyed my creations & that 
I have given you a little inspiration.

Happy Crafting..xx

Dream Layout and tag | Kaisercraft

Hi there,
Today I'm sharing a layout using the new ooh la la collection 

With this layout I wanted to use the flowers on the sticker sheet
As I really like how you can cut it in half and get mor out of the stickers on the sheet 

I also wanted to use my butterfly cut file
And backed it with colour

I added a few strips of patterned paper at the top and bottom of my layout 
And tucked the collectables and cut in half stickers just under the strips of patterned paper 

I added layers of patterned paper behind my photo and fussy cut it's some flowers and cut it in half 
And tucked in over the butterflies wings

Then I added a cut title and a few butterflies and pearls 

I think the flower stickers help make the page pop

Hello Cute Girl | Shop and Crop

Hi there,
Happy Wednesday to you all ..today I'm sharing a layout using the millie and June papers 
from fancy pants designs 

I started off with white cardstock my fav ..
Then cut a strip of patterned paper for the top of my layout 
Then 2 more strips of the floral paper one to add the the bottom of my layout and the other
To add over the bottom edge of the striped patterned paper 

I used the cute word from a set of my cutfiles 
and used some jillibean soup stickers for the rest of my title 

You can find my cutfiles Here

I also added some of the ephemera bits to the bottom of my layout on the right hand side 
And I punched out little stars from the pink patterned paper to match the jillibean soup star stickers 

I added 3 layers behind my photo of patterned paper and popped in a tag 
in the layers at the top of my photo 
I layered the prize ribbon and added some double sided tape
So pop on over the the shop and crop shop website

So Lovely Layout

Hi there,
So today I thought I would have a play with some pink fresh studio indigo hills 
I absolutely adore pinkfresh studio paper I love the texture and thickness 

So because I like to be inspired by the fabulous designs and this super lovely photo of my daughter Melissa 
I fussy cut the half scallops designs and added them to the top of my layout 

I was inspired by the patterned paper and the beautiful beautiful photo of my daughter 
Made me think of beautiful flowers in the spring blooming in the sun

So I decided I would make a Rose cutfile to compliment those beautiful patterned papers
I wanted to add the 3 colors pink,blue and yellow 

I love how the colors just pop

Here is my process video of my layout.

Here you can see a close up of my title I've fussy cut from P2177 incandescent 
And the frame behind my photo layers 

I machine stitched across the top of my strips and collectables 

With the vellum I used a embossing folder Christmas trees to add
A layer behind my photo to break up the gold

Used the detailed doily I die cut P2174 crystal patterned paper 
For one of my layers giving it that soft touch of colour
