If you haven't seen the newest Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance kits yet,
I urge you to go take a look right HERE as they are beautiful and not to be missed!
Today I am sharing with you my first project using the Scraps of Elegance
'A Song of Spring' kit (details of kit contents is at the end of the post)
along with some products from the Elements and Floral Add-Ons.
Last Saturday was (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day and there was a huge
celebration over at the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog with loads of inspiration, prizes
with this fabulous sketch challenge kicking it all off. I love double-pages and
I knew that this sketch would be the perfect start off point to use with my new SOE kit.
Since I intended to create this page for my friend to put in her daughter's album,
I wanted to keep it sweet, simple and clean, with just a touch of mixed media.
Most of my layouts end up being so thick with embellishments and flowers
that they are impossible to slip into an album plastic protective sheet,
so I keep them in huge plastic bins. I have about 6 so far! :)
I chose white cardstock for my background and then picked some of the softest
designs out of the gorgeous patterned papers in the kit.
As you can see, I sprinkled some of the Ranger Glitter Glass Shards on
and around my flower clusters. To make the tiny pieces stick, I use spray adhesive.
I also used some flowers from the Scraps of Darkness Floral Add-On.
I wanted to use lots of butterflies on this page to complement these lovely
Springtime photos so I added a few from the 49 and Market layered embellishment
pack and the Ultimate Crafts die cuts, both available in the Elements Add-On,
as well as a chipboard one found in my own stash.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this double-page. I know I enjoyed created it!
Thank you Scrapbook & Cards Today for the inspiration
and a huge thank you to Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance kits
for creating the most beautiful kits out there and having me on their DT!
