Beautiful Shabby Chic layouts - July Country Chic Kit

Good morning! Tracy Funk here.... 

"Goggles"

For this layout of my niece, I used the Kaisercraft Lilac Whisper papers from the Scraps of Elegance July kit, "Country Chic".  I used the Main Kit , Coordinating Paper Add-on and the Floral Add-on.


Main Kit

Coordinating Paper Add-on

Floral Add-on


I started with the Kaisercraft Whisper Neutral paper from the Main Kit and ripped off the top and bottom, then layered it over strips of the Mist paper.  I used the rest of the Mist paper to die-cut a large decorative circle and the Hydrangea paper from the Coordinating Paper Add-on to cut some small doilies.  I tucked some notecards from the Main Kit under either side of the large circle and matted the photo with the gingham paper that was also included in the Main Kit.



The large white doilies and the teal rectangles framing the photo were cut from cardstock from my stash. As I usually do, I layered each die-cut over a dark cardstock copy and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges.  I inked around the edges of most of the die-cuts and papers with Aquamarine chalk ink.
The chipboard pieces were from my stash.  I painted the border pieces teal and while the paint was still wet, lightly dabbed in some white paint to make the colour look less flat.  For the leaf flourishes, I embossed them with Ranger Antiquities Verdigris embossing powder and applied a bit of Aquamarine chalk ink.



The larger flowers were from my stash.  The medium and small roses and the small white flowers were from the Main Kit and Floral Add-on.



Here is my 5th project using the beautiful Scraps of Elegance July Kit, Country Chic, featuring 49 and Market Cottage Life paper.


"Nancy"


Main Kit

Patterned Paper Add-on

Elements Add-on


I started with the Branching Out paper included in the Main Kit.  I did some punching around the edges and some random stamping using Cobalt Archival Ink.  I also did some inking around the edges of the paper and over the stamped areas with the cobalt ink using a Clarity stencil brush.





This page was layered over the Fresh Delivery paper (in the Main Kit) to show through the punched areas. The center of the Fresh Delivery paper was cut out to make a circular mat for the photo.
I then made some die-cuts using another piece of the Branching Out paper from the Patterned Paper Add-on and the Provence paper from the Main Kit.  These were layered over a black cardstock version and offset slightly to accentuate the edges.

The flowers and butterflies were all from the Elements Add-on and Floral Add-on.


The metal filigree piece was from the Main Kit.



The other trinkets, button and chipboard flourishes were from my stash. I embossed the chipboard pieces with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Pop Rock Purple embossing powder included in the Main Kit.


Thank you so much for taking a look today!
