Hello there! As a member of Scrap Everything's design team, it's my turn to play and have I had fun this month! Katherine The Amazing has managed to get some sensational new products from KaiserCraft in advance of their release so the design team members can have layouts ready to inspire you as they're released! How cool is that! And what's more, the products are fantastic!
This range from KaiserCraft is called the Pickled Pear Collection. It's a co-ordinated range of papers and die-cuts with some beautiful metal butterflies thrown in for good measure. I absolutely adore the green colours in this range. The butterflies and flowers immediately sent me looking for girl photos but you could also easily use them for travel, general and even male layouts (butterflies and flowers optional!)
Here's this week's layout:
I can see now that I should have taken a close up of the title. It reads "These are a few of my Favourite Things." It was the die cut jounalling block with "Favourite Things" written on it that gave me the idea for the title. And of course there's no doubt my gorgeous nieces are some of my favourite things!
The circular KaiserCraft paper is beautiful and didn't need too much in the way of embellishments. I put some cream paint on my finger and ran it around the scalloped edge as well as behind the photo. I also added some black stitching for contrast.
You might have noticed the 12 x 12 paper behind the circular paper. It's
another of the Pickled Pear Collection. I have left the strip that runs
along the bottom on as it's beautiful. The row of butterflies matches
the layout perfectly.
Here's a close up of the main cluster:
That lovely butterfly is one of the die cuts as are the flowers behind the jounalling block.
Here's butterfly number two:
I placed a metal butterfly on top of the one printed on the paper. This gave it a more dimensional effect.
And here's butterfy number three:
This is another butterfly from the die cuts pack. I made a trail using dots of Liquid Pearls. I love this product!
I hope you enjoyed the layout. If it has inspired you to take a further look at this range, it's available here.
