Mummy’s Love

Happy Easter to everyone! And a long weekend means I get to catch up on all the lovely blogs I love to read and post something of my own.  So today I’m sharing a layout I made for the Merly Impressions and Challenge Yourself challenges.  Over at Merly, the challenge is to use dies, die-cuts or punches, which is a great challenge because let’s be honest…who doesn’t have an abundance of dies and punches lying around waiting to be used?  And Challenge Yourself is asking us to create something using trendy products in the scrapbooking world right now.  No problem there (I say over-confidently!)!

Sooooo, where do I start?  I’ve used a couple of different border punches on some of the papers in the middle.  I also used some dies to make the butterflies and and a part of the title.  And from what I can tell, it would seem as though stencilling, washi tape and doodling seem to be in fashion right now.

I doodled around a part of the title, which really made the difference for it to stand out.  I also used a combination of distress ink and an old inkpad which I rubbed through my new favourite Tim Holtz stencil! Add some washi tape, gems, a couple of flower embellishments, a lovely rub on from Kaisercraft and voilà…layout done!
