And now, here is my first ever Scraps Of Elegance Layout, using the Super, Femininely Gorgeous Elegance Kit, and the always inspiring sketch by Suepup:
This kit is sheer heaven! I used one of my friend Debra's DGD's photo for this layout, her name is Isabella and she is just a doll. Items from the kit:
Kaisercraft and Webster's Pages
Webster's Pages Madallion Sparklers
Webster's Pages Western Romance Trim
Prima Pixi Glen Bling
Prima Avon Rose Flowers
Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings Colour Rub Ons
Reneabouquets Etsy-Pink Lemonade Crush Butterflies
Items from my Etsy Shop:
The Shabby Weathered Clock
Iced Burlap Flower
Pink Lemonade Butterflies
Thank you to Shelly Anne for the white lace, Prima Cream Say It In Crystals Flourish, and Teresa Collins Blingage Ali Pins!!! You are a doll!
Here are some close ups:
I loved the Webster's Pages Trim! Here you can see that I pleated it and held the pleats in place by pinning, the Teresa Collins Ali Pins through it.
In the top left corner I pleated some more of that yummy trim and popped on a vintage heart pin that I got from a local children's charity shop onto it.
I am so excited that Melinda is going to be using butterflies from my Etsy Shop as a part of the Scraps Of Elegance Kits! Melinda is such a sweetie and supports all of her Design Team girls in all that they do-Thank you Mel!!
Here is another layout, using the Kit:
This layout features a photo of my niece, Megan with their new Christmas puppy Eli. I titled it "Puppy Love", because it was love at first site!
I used the following Kit Items to create this layout:
Webster's Pages Paper
Vintage Dictionary Papers
White Sparkle Tule
Melissa Frances Resin
Vintage German Playing Card
I used the following Items From My Etsy Shop:
Textured Shabby Chic Roses
Pale Pink Glitter Glass Butterflies
I layered in more flowers including the Prima Avon Roses from the kit, over a Prima Vine from my stash, and tucked in the sweet playing card that was also in the kit.
I topped my circle with the Melissa Francis Resin Swag, and fussy cut more flowers for the top.
I loved working with this vintage, shabby chic kit, and I am so proud to be a part of the new Scraps Of Elegance Design Team~
Have fun on the hop!! Your next stop is my sweet, little sister, Cheryl's blog:
Give her a hug for me!!!
