Last shares with Daily Stories & Honey Chai - By Linda Eggleton

Hi everyone...welcome to the blog & happy Anzac Day - Lest We Forget!
Today I'm back to share another layout from each of the
collections I've been working with this month
Teresa Collins - Daily Stories
Kaisercraft - Honey Chai
I have loved working with both collections & feel so privileged to create with them.
First up is a layout using Teresa Collins - Daily Stories
The colours in this collection are totally gorgeous, as is the patterns & embellishments that go with it.
"The Cutest Little Yawn"
(based on the April sketch at Grand Divas Creative Corner)
I have used the reverse side of the Ombre Circles paper for my background, with a few splashes/flicks of glimmermist randomly across the page, then distressed, inked & layered a variety of PP's in under the photos.

Here is a cute little cluster of Green Tara & Petaloo flowers, and a Flutterby flair...with a scatter of the Daily Stories Sequins around the edges.

Some of the enamel chevrons & dots from the Enamel Dots & Shapes pack
Plus one of the stickers & a 2Crafty butterfly that I've coloured with FC Gelatos

My title is made up of AC Thickers, a few little stips of PP & the alpha stickers from the Alpha/Word Sticker sheet.  The alphas from the pack are white, so I have coloured them using some more yummy Gelatos!

Some strip journaling on white cardstock that I have also coloured with Gelatos to help it stand out against the white background.

And here is an overall view of the page....with pics of my gorgeous little Great Niece - Olivia <3
Next is my layout using Kaisercraft - Honey Chai
The colours in this collection have gorgeous autumn tones - one of my fav colours to work with!
Again, the Collectables pack is filled with so many fantastic diecuts,
and they are also the perfect size for adding in and around your page.
"Blarney Castle"
(based on the April sketch at Life.Paper.Scrapbook)

I've tried to use a mix of all the colours from the collection, and have left the background plain, as I felt there was enough going on with the layers etc under the photos.  I also added some punched borders down the sides of the paper layers.

A small cluster of KC blooms, Collectables diecuts, Petaloo flower &
raw 2Crafty Summer Leaf Stems

A few of the diecuts, that I've inked around the edges.

Another smaller cluster - KC blooms, butterfly diecut, a button & a wood veneer camera

My title using the alpha stickers from the sticker sheet along with some Prima alphas...and the gorgeous rose border is from the collectables pack too :)

And my journaling...straight onto the background paper.

A closeup of the main area of the page - pics are of Blarney Castle, which holds the famous Blarney Stone.  Everything about this place was amazing...from the Castle, to experiencing the climb up inside it to reach the stone that HAD to be the magnificent gardens & grounds surrounding the castle.  We spent practically the whole day there exploring & having a great time :)
Thank you all for visiting today...I hope you have enjoyed seeing my creations :)
Until next time....take care & happy scrapping!
