Today I am so excited to share the first layouts created with the
May Scraps Of Darkness kit - 'Soulshine'
This layout is filled with Blue Fern Studio "Serenity" and Prima "Salvage District" papers and embellishments. The photos are of her Mom and Dad taken around 1952... they'd just gotten married.
She started by using a gorgeous paper for the background from Blue Fern Studio included in the Main Kit and Tim Holtz's "Victorian Velvet" Distress Ink to shade the background. She ripped a page from an old book, used the Blue Fern Studios pink paper from a previous kit to create a mat for the photos.She used a die from her stash and cut out two pieces from white cardstock to frame the mats. On the pink mat she used a photo corner that is included in the Prima Salvage District Ephemera pack in the Main Kit.
She purchased the circle chipboard from the Scraps of Darkness/Elegance from the store located here: http://www.scrapsofdarkness.com and used Stampendous Aged Embossing Powder in Pink on it.
She used various flowers from previous kits and the Main Kit and tucked in bits and pieces of Prima lace from an older kit and added a Prima Salvage District brad from the Elements Add On. She also added pearls to the centers of the lace flowers and used 2 beautiful butterflies that were included in a past kit.
Her next layout is just as beautiful as her first and features an adorable photo of her mother, her brother and her!
She started with one of the Blue Fern Studios papers included in the Main Kit, and cut a notch at the top and bottom then inserted a piece of yellow blue fern studios paper from a previous kit. She rolled and distressed the edges of the top paper and inserted bits of lace and flowers from previous kits.
She did a little stamping and ink splattering around the page and added 2 doilies at the top right and bottom left of the layout. She added little pieces from the Prima Ephemera Die Cuts included in the Main Kit.
She cut a piece of chipboard from her stash in half, Inked around the edges, matted it on a piece of cardstock with little touches of lace around the edges. She matted her photo and then started playing with the embellishments.
She fussy cut a sweet little girl from one of the Blue Fern Studios tags printed on one of the papers in the Patterned Add-on and added Gold Stickles all over it. She adhered some flowers from the Floral Add-On and her stash, along with a little clock and tag (the clock is included in the Ephemera die Cuts from the Main Kit).
In the Elements Add-On is a packet of Prima's Mechanicals "Grungy Butterflies"
Next she created flower clusters using more flowers from the Floral Add-On and her stash and added a sweet little key that is also in the Prima Ephemera pack. She also tucked in some little pieces of yellow ribbon from a previous kit.
She hoarded the gorgeous lace from a previous kit and used around the edges of the layout. In the corners she diecut corner pieces and inked them with Prima's Color Bloom "Antique Gold".
Thanks for stopping by!
