scrap delight - guest designer!

hello lovely friends!

i feel very honoured that i was asked to be the july guest designer for scrapdelight - a dutch online scrapbook store with an absolutely amazing selection of scrapbook supplies!

here is what i created with their latest products -


on the pictures - my little baby ELISE with her favourite (at the time) blue rabbit.

i had these pictures for quite some time (8 years by now;-), but i never managed to find the right papers for them. when i saw the new FANCY PANTS paper line - "it's the little things" (which you can order here) - i knew in an instant that this line will be perfect for these pictures!

i started by colouring the "pecking order" sheet, which was originally black & white, but with a little help from RV95 copic ciao i made it black & pink to suit my design better!

i used a sheet of french vanilla cardstock for the second layer, which i sprayed with GLIMMER MIST {pink taffy}. the third pink layer i cut from the "humming bird" sheet.

for the borders i used MARTHA STEWART's "floral lace" edge punch and EK SUCCESS "garden flower chain" punch and "birdcage" paper.

i cut out some of the punched flowers to create a 3D effect, i embossed them and added distressed STICKLES "tattered rose" for that extra glam they needed.


the paper flowers are from the same FANCY PANTS collection. for the pink swirls i used bits and pieces from ZVA CREATIVE. i couldn't put the original swirl on, because of its size - it was way to big for the little space around the flowers i have left. so, i cut it!

here are some more close ups:

i did a lot of stitching and fussy cutting on this layout, but it was all worth it :-)
i'm pretty pleased with the result!
