Hello and welcome back! I have for you my second share for this month and again I have decided to use the collection of Cottage Life. There really is something absolutely adorable about this collection that I am so drawn to. I have just realised that each layout I have created from this collection I have used the cute photos of my girls from when they were very young.
"My little ray of Sunshine"
I decided to keep this creation very simple, light and pretty.
Cottage Life's Garden Seeds was used for the background page. I did a little stamping using the Whimsical Door Stamp's of Gabrielle Pollacco's with a little Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
I cut the door from Bicycle Alley along with some of the flower clusters and added them to my layout to help build the page. I also used some of the flowers from Garland for a little extra floral delight.
But to add to the dimension of this layout I have created with the 3D embellishments from Cottage Life. I only used the light green and pink embellishments from here. But they are just the perfect addition to add to any layout. I have even broken them up to go further around the page.
You can see here how well these 3D Embellishments are to layer with chipboards and flowers. They are a fantastic addition. Love them!!
I have also used some gorgeously yummy chipboards from Dusty Attic. I have used the Ironwork Banner which comes in two identical pieces. I used the first one whole and the second one was cut in to several pieces and adhered to make it look like a fence posting. Well I certainly hope it looks like this to you. With the remainder I used it to sit at the top of the page to hang the cute chipboard mini tab "My Sunshine". I have also used another chipboard title "Sparkle". You can never have too many titles am I right?
Ironwork Banner DA0890W
Cameo Ribbon Slides DA0658
Mini Tabs #6
Word Pack #11 DA1267
The chipboards were all dressed in White Crackle Texture Paste and Distress Inks. The title had a little Star Dust stickles dusted over the top to help it sparkle! I also added some Star Dust Stickles to the centres of my 3D embellishment butterfly bodies and some of the flowers.
And from another view....
Above you can see the first clustering of flowers. I have used the Seaside Blooms in Natural Blush and Aloe. I also added in some of the Garden Seeds varieties because you can just never have too many flowers I think. I am so very addicted to these new addition of flowers to the 49andMarket line up. They are just perfect. I have pulled a couple of these apart to make them go further around my layout. There are so many layers in some of the flowers that you would just never know that they were pulled apart!
Well that is all from me for today. Take care and happy scrapping. x
