Buttons and Bows

A new month means a new scrapbook challenge at Just Add Ink. This month the challenge is to add buttons and bows to your layout.

I created a very girly page (not my usual style with four boys I must say) to scrap a favourite picture of my niece and myself. I started with the Tea Time Simply Scrappin' Kit and added in a few extra elements.

My favourite part of the layout is definately the grouping of flowers. I made rolled rose style flowers from a circle punched out of patterned paper and then added those to the centre of a scallop circle flower.  I filled out the group with Boho Blossoms flowers in two sizes and some sweet little flower buttons from the Twitterpatted button pack.

I added some bling to the small flowers with Crystal Effects and glitter. Looking at that photo above I might go back and stitch those buttons on if I can find a small enough needle - those button holes are teeny.

The sticker sheets in the Simply Scrappin Kit are great for layering and adding extra elements to the layout plus you know they co-ordinate. Everything was inked with Early Espresso Ink and I also stamped an extra flourish in the top right corner with my favourite swirly flourish Baroque Motifs (which is sadly retiring).

Thanks for stopping by

Just Add Ink - Scrapbooking Challenge

So things have been a little quiet on the blog..sorry about that. I knew I hadn't posted for a while but I nearly fell off my chair when I saw my last post was December last year. Where has the time gone??

Anyway, after a time of very little stamping and scrapbooking I am starting to fit it back in to my routine which is great because I really did miss it.

I decided to play along with the Just Add Ink scrapbook challenge this month which was to add hidden journalling or memorabilia.

For my layout I have used Stampin Up supplies. The paper is from the Mini Catalogue and is called Attic Boutique.

This is the layout open with an extra photo and hidden journalling.

And a look at some of the details. The stamp is a retired one but I still love it and use it often.

I punched extra flowers with the Boho Blossoms punch and cut others from the patterned paper.

Thanks for looking and leave me a comment so I know you stopped by.

Happy Scrappin
