May “A Walk in the Woods” – Dione Evans

These little swatches of paper were so gorgeous! I cut them in the same shape as the chipboard pages to tie them in. I had 2 matching ones and patched them to cover the larger of my chipboard shapes. It was a bit of a mission but I liked the finished product. The shape didn’t stand out quite as much as I wanted so i added a little white paint on the edges with my finger. The large letter M’s are Making Memories foam stamps.

I like cutting out – I find it quite soothing and therapeutic! but the flowers begged for leaves. I have been planning to draw leaves on patterned paper for a while so this was my opportunity. I tried to copy the font of the stickers for my journaling… don’t know if you will be able to see it.

This is a photo of my mother on her wedding day. I really enjoyed making the rubons into part of a circle. I love these rubons! it was an afterthought to add the butterful and even though the blue has nothing to really tie it in, I love the feeling of beauty and fragility it adds. I tried to journal in white pen but it didn’t really stand out so I wrote over it in and olive green pen.

I loved the scalloped edged paper but want’ sure how to use it. I wanted to use it with the bird page too but didn’t want to cover too much of it up. I ended up cutting about 2 scallops width off each side. I added 3 kinds of letter stickers and some letter rubons and some paint to the kit for this one and I likes how the chipboard bookplate/tags went with the each girl in the photo. I LOVED the bracket-like edge from another paper and how it tied my blues in.

May “A Walk in the Woods” – Celeste Vermeed

In this layout I have cut the flowers from the patterned paper and mounted them with foam tape.
I traced round the pink felt butterfly that came in my kit onto a piece of my own material and used this as it matched my colour combo.
Cardstock and letters are my own.
I have cut the little trees from the patterned paper to use on this layout.. I painted the chipboard tag from my kit with chocolate brown paint to coordinate.
I used the BasicGrey rub-ons on to the chocolate CS from my kit and cut around these to use as well.
Letters and CS my own.

Again I have painted the chipboard shape to coordinate with my colour combination.. I have cut the little birds from the patterned paper used in the layout. Two little birds worked well with my theme! I have used my own felt flowers, buttons, brads and one piece of ribbon. The other ribbons came in my pack..

I have cut out the flower pattern and used a brown pen to outline it.
