This is a layout featuring a photo of Lachlan and two of his closest friends. I tried to make the layout of the background rectangles reflect the peacock’s tail feathers and the hexagons reflect the paving stones. I love the bright coordinating colours of this set of papers.
Using: We R Memory Keepers White Out Collection; Bazill card stock; Cuttlebug embossing folders and Stampin’ Up ink pads.
I borrowed this idea from an item I saw in the window of a giftware store over Christmas. The twig was sourced during an evening walk, then I bound it in white yarn. The decorations were cut using the Cricut. The idea is to change the decorations depending on your mood or the occasion – it doesn’t have to be just for Christmas!
Using: Kaisercraft Turtle Dove papers; Bazill Bling card stock; Cricut Paper Lace cartridge.
In this project I had fun with my corner rounder on some paint sample chips to make petal shapes. Believe it or not, this set of papers was one of the first I ever bought! I got the paint sample chips a while ago without knowing what I was going to use them for. I love the sumptuous oranges and blues and they match these gorgeous Cherry Arte papers perfectly.
Using: Cherry Arte Morocco papers, rub-ons and chipboard; Bazill card stock and Taubmans paint sample chips – in Indian Spice, Orange Relish and Salem Blue!
