I have this photo that was taken of me and my little great-niece Kiera that I've been meaning to scrap for some time now. I wanted the page to be soft and feminine with a feeling of 'home' about it. For the soft and femine, I reached for the Primrose collection and for the home elements I chose to add in papers from The Avenues collection. I love the way pink looks with gold, so I chose the gold zig-zag paper from The Avenues collection as the matting for my background paper, and then I cut a pretty window/door design and clock from some of the other Avenues papers to add a 'homey' feel to the page.
I love how the flowers from the Bo Bunny Clover Dahlia's pack goes with the Primrose papers! And that fabric bloom with the pretty button has to be among my most favorite blooms ever! As I was creating my floral cluster I added some cheese-cloth bits to give a more tattered look and finished it with the cute wood washer from the Primrose Button collection.
For my title I used one of the ornate chipboard pieces from the Primrose 12x12 chipboard and added a few of the little banners underneath. I really love the 'Garden' paper for the beautiful and intricate labels on the back. Not only are they great for titles but the ornate designs can be cut and used as page accents in areas where you want to add a little more interest to the page (I did this on the left and right sides of the pink pink dot paper).
As always I LOVE to use the butterfly paper for fussy cutting and adding whimsical accents to the page. I also did a bit of inking and stamping in the corners of my page, using the Bo Bunny 'It is Written Stamp', I then layered on a flourish design with a stencil and home made texture paste.
