Simple Stories "The Story of Us" & Kaisercraft "Pitter Patter" - By Linda Eggleton

Hello everyone & Happy Friday to you all :)
I have quite a bit to share today, so I'll get right to it.
First up is a layout using Simple Stories - The Story of Us , which as you'll recall, is a wedding themed collection.  But for this layout I've managed to create a page using one of my holiday pics from Ireland last year....I love when paper collections are versatile like this!
"St Stephen's Green"
I've used the wood side of the wood/silver foil paper for my background and have added some textured stencilling & dabbing of some watered down gelatos....using a scrunched up plastic bag

The spray of flowers & leaves coming down from the cluster were fussy cut from the Forever & Always paper....and the rest of the cluster is made up of Green Tara & Petaloo flowers, as well as a little leftover piece of 2Crafty chipboard that was cut from a bigger piece on a previous project.

The Green artisan border poking out at the top & bottom of my paper layers is fussy cut from the Happily Ever After paper & then I coated it in gesso before colouring it green with my Gelatos...then added a bit of Kaisercraft stamping over the top.

How cute is that little camera!  It is one of the pieces from the Bits & Pieces pack and I've mounted it on some foam tape so that it sits up off the page a bit <3  And you can also see at the top of the page where I've used my new fav die from Memory Box - that I love cutting up into small pieces to add here & there on my page :)

St Stephen's Green is a gorgeous old park in Dublin....with paths & little lakes with ducks & other birdlife lots of playing areas for children.  It really is a beautiful old park & I love this photo with the trees just starting to turn & some that have fallen on the path :)
Next up is some DT work that I've created for Kaisercraft
using the very cute "Pitter Patter" collection, which comes with both pink & blue papers & coordinating collectables & stickers.
"Baby Boy" Layout

I've layered up a few of the blue papers in behind my photo and used the
Little Feet paper for my background

There are so many gorgeous pieces in the collectables pack - which comes in
both a boy pack & a girl pack

"Baby Girl" Altered photo album cover

I have covered the album using the Special Delivery paper...just like you'd cover a school book, and then added some layers & embellishments the same as if it was a layout :)

Here's a close up of the cluster work....which includes LOTS of pieces
from the Girl Collectables pack

"Baby Boy" Card

Just a really quick card using papers from the 6x6 paper pad & diecuts from the Boy Collectables pack - I love those little hexagons & the cute little babies feet that I've layered on top of each other with some foam tape.

And another quick easy card...a few papers & collectables pieces layered on top of a paper doily :)
That's all from me for this week....I hope you have been inspired :)
Until next time, happy scrapping! xx
