Lush Lemon Layout

A quick post to share a layout I created this morning featuring the Lemon Lush papers from Studio Calico. These papers were part of the gorgeous March Cupcake kit from A Piece of Cake Designs.

The idea for this layout came to mind at midnight just before falling asleep, It actually turned out better than I had pictured. Hope you like it

I started with the Teresa Collins hearts mask and the twinkling h20 pot and went to work adding random hearts around the Kraft paper. I then hand cut strips of different sizes from the 6x6 papers within the kit and overlapped them along the page, and sewed them down with my trusty (dusty) sewing machine. I layered the photo on top of some vellum and more pattern papers, stapled the XOXO and stuck down some sequins and stars and called it done :) Although I think it needs some journalling somewhere..

The photo was taken this morning while I was starting the page, I had a different photo in  mind to use, but this view right here is something we see regularly in this house. Leila still in PJs wearing a xmas Tutu and her 'dancing shoes'. Normally she's dancing around to Angelina Ballerina, however this morning it was all about the new talking Cat app on the tablet (It repeats everything you say and came pre loaded on the kids tablet).

There are still a couple of kits remaining in the store HERE Head on over and snap one up before they all disappear. I can't wait to see what else my imagination creates with this kit.

Peach Cooler with D-Lish Scraps

Its time for another Inspiration Board with D-Lish Scraps.. YAY
This is the last board for the Autumn Creative Team. 
I have loved being part of this each month! Its been so much fun creating traditional pages for Leila 
Cannot wait to see who is announced for next season, and to see what they produce 

This months board is full of soft pastels, colours I don't normally go for when creating, so this was a challenge for me. But one I took on quite well, well at least I think so lol

My layout did turn out more pink than peach, but I still love it very much! 
A lot of the photos we take of Leila lately all look like this, and the response? "No smile today"

A close up of my hidden journalling within the paper bag. Ive held it in place with a camera paperclip and embellished with a freckled fawn dot. My 'Tiny attacher" got a work out as usual, attaching the hello tab above the photo. Im forever saying "HELLO.. SMILE" to Leila every time we try to take a photo.

I used the straws to pop the photo up above the page. Both the flower and butterfly are stuck down with glossy accents, my go to adhesive for thicker embellishments.

You can't see it in the photo, but there are more straws under the photo, which the flowers have been slid into, then petals glued down with more glossy accents. Ive also layered up the Journal It's and attached with more tiny staples.

To finish off the layout Ive dated and added another Freckled fawn enamel star, dot and another resin butterfly. 

Head on over to the D-lish blog to see the other Creative Team layouts. Lots of inspiration and details on how to enter into this months competition.
