Beautiful Marion Smith Designs Time Keeper Layouts

Good Thursday Morning!

It's a rainy day today - think it will be a good day to stay in and scrap!

I am sharing some beautiful layouts today from our wonderful Scraps Of Darkness Design Team!

First up is Kathy with this beautiful tribute layout to her mom...

Marion Smith Designs Time Keeper collection Heritage Layout

She started by punching around one of the Marion Smith papers from the kit, backed it with a piece of plain cardstock so that the lovely design would show through.  She fussy cut around another piece included with all these wonderful flowers and clocks and inked the edges then glued those pieces down to another paper included as well.
She lightly stamped a script design around the fussy cut pieces to add a little "old" look.  She spent hours embossing and cutting the oval frame around the photo, then backed the frame with a torn page from a book published in 1807.
She then began to place the flowers and chipboard, butterflies and all the other embellishments and used quite a bit of cheesecloth to get a romantic look.  Here are a few detail photos.

Kathy and I had the same idea of fussy cutting the clocks and flowers!

Tanya's Industrial Odyssey kit mother and son layout

This is our youngest and I just before his confirmation in the spring.  I can not believe how fast time has flown by since I became a mom!

I fussy cut all the corner flowers and clocks out of the gorgeous Marion Smith Timekeeper papers.

I did lots of layers under the photo of different Marion Smith Timekeeper papers.

I used a Blue Fern chipboard piece from a previous kit and the distress stain then the Heidi Swapp 'mustard' mist from previous kits.  I allowed them to dry, added a bit of the Lindys Stamp Gang Midnight Bronze and Scotch Butter Yellow embossing powders from the color add on.  I then added some crackle medium in spots.

The cool metal piece at the bottom of the chipboard piece is a Prima Industrial Lighting piece from the Elements add on!
The flowers are some I bought at the Scraps Of Darkness store and sprayed with the mustard mist then inked and added some crackle medium!

Here you can see all the layers under the photo and a doily I sprayed with the Lindys stamp gang mist from the color add on and the mustard one.

I do not like seeing the white from the foam dots when I want to add dimension and I did not have any of the black ones so I used a bit of the brown mist on a paint brush to color the sides so they were not so noticeable!
And finally we have this beautiful layout from Tracey G.

I love the 'framing' and the layers! 
Here are some of the wonderful details

Thanks so much for stopping by!
