May Scrapbook Club

Hello everyone, oh dear just when I thought nothing else could go wrong  in my life my laptop decided to start misbehaving, I think I will have to part with some money soon and replace it as it went off yesterday and tried ever since to get it going again. Sad smileIt s slow and driving me mad.

Anyhow I am so behind showing you stuff, today I am sharing  our May Scrapbooking club layouts.

We worked with the Paisley Petals papers and I have to admit that I would have never have looked at these papers twice if it wasn’t for a swap I received from one of my team members Hayley. She made some pretty cards and her accent was Rich Razzleberry and it just popped and it made me love it. The background is Crumb Cake and the fabby pleated ribbon in Pear pizzaz brings it all together. We fussy cut around the motif to create a wide border and more accents have been added using the swairl sizzlet punched flowers and flat backed pearls.

Here’s the other page

A few more shots of the details close up

The bird was embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and the pages was spritzed with brown ink and the spritzing tool for a more shabby vintage look.

I am also sharing another project I recently completed with the same Elegant Bird die, its a fabulously sparkly ornament.

It was so hard to take a decent picture of it and I still feel that no camera will ever translate its beauty and real life sparkle, its dazzling for sure Smile

It was extremely easy to make, I used some thick hardboard that came with the glimmer paper and used the very clever Sticky Sheets. as they are double sided you simply adhere to both sides of your thick card, cut two wings in the same way, peel off the protective sheets adhere the wings to the body and pour the glitter all over!!!  Next tombow glue will be needed to cover the edges and more glitter. As easy as that !!!

I have mixed some of our galaxy fine glitter here, I mixed silver and gold for my bird here but I cannot wait to make a dozen more in all the colours.
