“Happy” Single Page Layout

Hi there Creatives!

Crafting is my “happy place”  and this photo was taken on a tea-break at a Soul Sister Craft Club event. I was wearing my favourite colour: pink and the Little Birdie pink scrapbook papers are just perfect for this single page layout!

For the background I used the pink paper from the Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack. I trimmed it to 11.5″ x 11.5″ and distressed the edges before I adhered it to white card-stock. I used the chevron stencil and Mixed Media Paste to accentuate the chevron paper.

The Golden Glaze Tinted Metallic Paint is a firm favourite with me and I watered it down before I randomly splattered the background.

I coloured the primed chipboard title and embellishment with  Rich Gold Metallic Wax.

The layering behind the photograph consists of papers from various Little Birdie paper packs and the flower cluster as well.

Here are some close up pictures:

Someone Special – Scrapbook Layout

Hi  there Creatives,

I’m back again on the Little birdie Blog with a single page layout. I love creating layouts and this photograph of a friend’s daughter is so cute, it just needed to be scrapbooked!

I fussy cut some elements from the Aqua Medley paper pack. I love the roses and butterflies.

Golden Plum Tinted Metallic Paint is one of my favourites among Little Birdie products. I used that to paint the chipboard frame.

For the background I used white cardstock and patterned paper from the Amor Mio collection. I tore a strip and adhered it to the white cardstock. I stenciled a few leaves randomly with Mulberry Glaze Sparkle Paste and splattered with Blackcurrant Colour Splash and Golden Plum Tinted Metallic Paint.

I adhered a piece of cheesecloth and placed the frame over it, but a little off the centre. Then I tucked in the fussy cut flowers and some die cut leaves behind the frame.

Next, I added the photo. I first raised it on a small piece of cardboard. Then I  added flowers and buttons to create more interest.

Here are more close up pictures:

I hope you found some inspiration here!
