Uniquely Creative – Mother Nature

My favourite layout for this month is this one that took a few hours to fussy cut the flowers but I love it. I love the stencil that comes in the kit this month. Its a cherry blossom and you can spy it in grey coming from under the edge of the flowers. The Sunshine pearls are also an absolute treat, so bright and lovely. The Blessed word is the die cut included in this months kit which is beautiful script. Love it.
A mixed media layout using lots of the Creative Cuts in this months kit. I wanted to do something without flowers as the kit is predominantly floral. Ive used a stencil from Uniquely Creative called Little Crosses. Also the Mermaid mark making stamp.

The watercolour Cut a part sheet features these beautiful flowers which I’ve hand painted using the UNIQOLOUR markers. Ive used the laser cut sheet as a mat for my photo, it gives a bit of dimension and interest. I painted it to match. The cherry blossom stencil is used on this layout with the uniqolour markers. I scribbled on a palette and used a sponge to apply the colour.
This is a cut file from Lori Whitlock. I loved it so much and changed out the flowers that came with the cut file to the fussy cut flowers from Mother Nature. You can find the link here.
I hope this has inspired you to race off and create something lovely. It’s great therapy for the soul and also memory keeping. Happy scrapping and thanks for visiting.

Uniquely Creative – Winter Rose

My poor blog has been a little neglected now I’m back at work, so here’s a post of Aprils Winter Rose layouts for Uniquely Creative.

Nothing more satisfying than tearing strips of paper and layering them together. Makes an easy layout and a textured interesting effect. It’s hard to photograph gold on your layouts. The lanterns above are die cut from rose gold card.
I’ve hand painted the flowers with watercolour. It’s very relaxing and rewarding to paint and fussy cut, and makes your layout unique. The gold is showing up nicely in this photo.
This is my favourite layout for this month. I love the Kraft background and the hand painted flowers. A simple layout with some background stamping and a few creative cuts (banners) and laser cut pieces. All of the flowers are arranged with adhesive foam on the back, it gives you lots of dimension.
I love to create a few layouts with multiple photos for those that like to scrap lots of pics. I print them out using software called My Image Garden that came with my Canon printer. It lets me print 2 photos to a 6×4 and I love this size for multiple photo layouts. This was a great background page and I hardly had to add anything on to make it look full and interesting just a few layers of different papers behind the photos and a little bit of embellishing.
Another multiple photo layout in a grid design. Not a lot of work but still effective with some nice fussy cut pieces.
This one just using the scraps of leftover paper, tearing and machine stitching in lines. Add a fussy cut bouquet and title, and it’s done. I have also added a few paint splatters.

Hope you are inspired by my layouts today.
