hello scrappy friends, 

i've got a brand new layout to share with you today. 
i designed this one for MERLY IMPRESSIONS using the amazing KAISERCRAFT "something blue" collection.

if you have followed the MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog {and mine}, probably you’ve noticed that so far i used the black/white colour palette from this collection, the blue/black palette and today i’m sharing a page created with the brown/beige papers.

it is one paper line, but the possibilities are endless! 


for my background i used the true love pattern paper. i didn't alter it further, because i really like the design on it – the rhyme is so sweet and perfect for the wedding pictures i used.

to create the cardstock edge with the large hearts i used MARTHA STEWART deep edge punch "scroll heart" and KAISERCARD vanilla cardstock. i added a second layer with a piece of lace from the cream lace package and finished off my design with a stripe of pattern paper from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad matching the collection.

i die cut the paper bow using TIM HOLTZ "bow-tied" decorative strip die.

 for the lovely blossoms i used KAISERCRAFT paper blooms coral. i needed two packages to get all the similar flowers, but i believe that it is worth it! these blooms are simply amazing! 

i added a bit of RANGER liquid pearls white opal to decorate the petals. for the smaller flowers, i used KAISERCARD vanilla cardstock. i cut the stripes and created the buds by hand.
to finish off my flower clusters i added die cut foliage and KAISERCRAFT pearls lush colour.

for my title i used a die cut from the collectables pack.

and for my sentiment i used again a die cut from the collectables pack, but this time i layered it on patter paper from the 6.5 x 6.5″ paper pad.

 i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

have a fabulous day!

hugs 'n smiles,

Just gorgeous Emmy! How pretty, from the black and white to the colored photo and then keeping it simple with the embellishments being around the colored photo makes a real statement. Great sentiment too. Just amazing!
