Sunday, August 30


hello crafty friends! 

it is the end of AUGUST {where did the summer go, right?} and it is time for my latest post MERLY IMPRESSIONS. for today i’ve prepared a pink and girly layout using the amazing KAISERCRAFT's FLY FREE collection {available at the MERLY IMPRESSIONS online store}. 


my layout is inspired by KAISERCRAFT august sketch challenge:

to create my background i used PARTNER pattern paper, which i altered with GESSO and KAISERMIST spray ink ANTIQUE GOLD

to mat my picture i used a slightly bigger dark brown rectangle made of KAISERCARD coffee bean weave cardstock. for the layers under the picture i used different colours pattern papers from the mini PAPER PAD. i ruffled their edges with PAPER DISTRESSER and adhered them with MOUNTING FOAM TAPE

to decorate my picture further i used die cuts from the PAPER PAD and the COLLECTABLES pack and fussy cut butterflies and birds from the BOND gloss paper.

i even added a little pink butterfly in my niece hair, because she is so cute and pink :-)

and a lot more butterflies and RHINESTONES silver to my background. i slightly embossed the butterflies and adhered them with MOUNTING FOAM TAPE.

to finish off my design i added die cut blossoms and a few paper flowers – paper blooms HOT PINK and mini paper blooms – COCONUT.

i hope you enjoyed today’s post!

have an amazingly creative and a very happy week!

hugs 'n smiles,
