Today we're taking Kathryn off to move into her flat at Portsmouth University. I'm bound to cry when we leave her however hard I try not to. I shall miss her loads.
This is a scrapbook page I made for the Spellbinders shows last Sunday. The photo was taken while we were on holiday in Cyprus in February. I've used it before in another page which you can see here.
For the background, I ran a piece of Foundations Floral Dream Paper through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Ornamental Iron M-Bossabilities Folder (it really is one of my favourites). I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked all around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I cut the photo of Kathryn out using Matting Basics B. I cut the largest of the Fancy Postage Edge dies out of the Floral Dream Paper, this time with the dotty side face up. I inked around the edges after I had removed it from the die. I threaded some black & white Baker's Twine from the Primary Set through the holes in the die cut and tied a bow in the top left-hand corner.
I cut the middle size of the Angle Approach Cut, Fold & Tuck die set out of black card and the smallest one out of the Floral Dream paper. I folded and tucked, edged the smallest with Dusty Concord and layered them on top of each other adding a 5mm Black Pearl in the centre.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the Fancy Postage Edge dies and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.
I assembled the page as shown adding a black pearly swirly and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Purple Violet.
You could easily swap the photo for an image to make an 8 x 8 card with this layout instead of a scrapbook page.
Thanks for stopping by.
