Keren's August Kit Creations

Keren here to show you in detail the layouts I made with my ScrapThat! August Kit.

For this first layout, I used blue and brown hues. I started with a circle and some leftover strips of paper. I cut out some flourishes and the title out of the blue cardstock using my Cricut machine.  I clustered the flowers, doilies and the beautiful Prima nest to frame the photo. I used the Kaisercraft rub-ons to balance the page on the opposite side and added some onto the brown envelope.  I tucked some hidden journaling inside the envelope and added some pieces of the chipboard frame behind the it.  Finally I decorated with some pearls

For this layout I slanted the middle paper and added lace and pearls behind it. I ripped some of the edges and added some Prima resin corners and lace underneath. I decorated each area with a rose. I clustered a large flower from my stash, along with a tulle flower I made (see tutorial tomorrow), some small flowers and a butterfly. I used the chipboard frame around the picture. I had to cut it in half and tuck it under the photo. Finally I added the some pearls to accent the patterned paper.
Tip: to get the white effect on the background paper I rubbed it with a wipe. It took some of the blue glossy effect from the top.

For my final layout I used ScrapThat! August Sketch. I made 3 flowers out of my Cricut machine and added some leaves, cheese cloth and butterflies in the cluster.

I hope you like my creations today. If you would like to see more of my work please visit me at:
