As promised, I'm starting to give more in depth close ups and tips on each of the layouts that I made using the gorgeous August kit "Once Upon a Dream" featuring Kaisercarft Charlotte's Dream Collection!
For the first layout, I used the Main Kit and the Embellishment Add On. This layout is based on Kaisercraft's Saturday July Sketch #2 and I used a picture of my mom last year. She is not very photogenic so this one is one of the best ones I had of her. :)
I traced the diecut paper that is included in this month's kit unto this pink paper and cut around it to make my own die cut paper. I inked the edges and machine stitched it unto a brown cardstock (from my stash).
I made some roses out of the brown pattern paper and used solid brown cardstock in the center to make it a bi-color rose. I then added some stickles to the edges to make it shine! I used the crochet doilies and white flowers in the kit for my cluster.
I inked up the chipboard frames with Vintage Photo and added them around the picture. I left the wooden butterfly as they were because I love the raw look. I added a small Tim Holtz ticket from my stash.
Here's another look at the second cluster. I used 2 leftover leaves that I had from last month's kit. I also used the pearls included in this kit to add them randomly around my cluster.
Another look at a wooden butterfly. I love all the layers and texture in this layout!
I printed descriptive words about my mom using my printer. I hand stitched around the rectangles and added them to the right side of the picture.
Finally, I made a little banner using the rub-ons, alphas and a piece of hemp cord from my stash. I love how it turned out!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciate you taking your time to comment on my creations! It means a lot to me! :)
