2 Amazing layouts from Dana!

Good morning Dana here 


Hi! I'm sharing my first layout for Scraps of Darkness. I created this debut project with the February Our Story Kit and it is absolutely gorgeous! There are so many beautiful floral papers and sparkly accents to work with.


I've been holding on to this photo of my youngest niece for some time and was so happy to see how well it coordinated with this kit. I built up layers of journaling notecards, fussy cut papers, book pages, and product packaging (it matches this kit perfectly!) under my photos. I topped the photos with a mix of flowers from the Main Kit, Element Add-On, and Floral Add-On. I colored the small chipboard heart with embossing powder from the Creativity Add-On. The title for this page, "Sweet Life" is from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons, which I added under the photos.


I used the stencil from the Elements Add-On with the Dina Wakley Media Blushing Heavy Body Acrylic Paint from the Creativity Add-On to add a colorful print to the background of my layout. I then added stamping with the fun Ruby Rock-It Bella! Champagne Bubbles stamp and the Prima Chocolat Dye Ink from the Color Add-On. Once that was dry, I added a light layer of whipped spackle over a text stencil for texture and dimension. Lastly, I sprayed the Lindy's Stamp Gang Cocoa Bean Copper Starburst Mist for a metallic accent. The shimmer of this mist is fantastic!




I altered the finish of the Papermania Ever After Wedding Heart Charm for this page from silver to gold with a layer of clear gesso and then gold paint.




This is the second layout I created February Our Story Kit from Scraps of Darkness. There are a lot of repetitive elements in this kit that I love. In addition to the beautiful flowers there are also a lot of circles. I played up both of those elements on this page.


I had this adorable photo of my niece peeking over the edge of a table top that I just love for its playfulness. I decided to cut away the distracting background of the photo to really let her shine. I cut the floral collage sections from the top and bottom of the Prima Love Clippings - Little Love Clippings patterned paper and sandwiched my photo between them.


I built up more layers under the photo from notcards, journaling cards, and fussy cuts from the Main Kit and Creativity Add-On. The Floral Add-On has a wonderful mix of colorful, textured, and glittered blooms that were so fun to mix and match on this page.


I traced two large circles onto the base of this page with the Festive Berries Distress Marker from the Elements Add-On. To add more circles to this page I stamped over the background with the Ruby Rock-It Bella! Champagne Bubbles stamp from the Main Kit using the Prima Chocolat Dye Ink from the Color Add-On. I also added circles from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons included in the Elements Add-On. This shimmer to this foil is amazing!


Lastly, I added a title for this page, "Loving Life," also from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons.

Thanks for Stopping by
