“Story Time” Scrap Happens

I wanted to show you have versatile the exclusive  floral paper in the September kit is.
Hi everyone, Sharmaine here, and when I first saw the gorgeous paper Stephanie designed for this month’s kit I was scared!
I wondered what on earth I could create that would do it justice.
I was super thankful that Christine had the foresight to send me a couple of pieces because once I started playing I was in love!
I started out with my gallery page, trying to soften the paper and allow it to blend into the background.

Next I decided to cut out some of the gorgeous flowers and add them to my page for Jot Magazine. I really wanted the flowers to be the stand out.

I added some gold glitter nail polish to the flower centres and used some of the scribble stamps to add depth to the flowers.

Lastly, I pulled out some older kit products and decorated a gift bag, using a part of the flower design.

A handy way to use up supplies, don’t you think??
Again I added some nail polish to the flowers and if you look carefully, in the background, you might see a snowflake stamp from an older Cocoa Daisy kit.
So make sure you don’t feel intimidated by scrapbook supplies. Get in, use them and create something wonderful.

    Love your creations with this gorgeous paper! Your second layout was a standout with the border stamping, chevron (the colors you used make me swoon–share your secret colors?), fussy cut, and those scribbles make the flowers pop! Great gift bag idea….love the mixed media touch, splatters, more fussy cut, doily, love those BG feathers but missed the snowflake stamp. Thank you for the inspiration!
