There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.


Hello Everyone!

Today I have mixed things up a bit.  Previous Spring,  Summer and Winter releases have been combined with some of the newly released Spring 2012 along with papers from the The ScrapCake Summer City.

We are also going to play with some colour – I hope you enjoy putting this together as much as I did.

For my layout ‘Laughter’, I have incorporated the following:

MHC Products:  Kyeesha – Orange & Yellow, Party Time – Anniversary, Petite Roses – Melon

Spring 2012 Release: Wild Rose – Sherbet, Powder Puff

The ScrapCake: Summer City – Blue Moon, Paradise, Banana Boat

Other Materials:  Contrast patterned paper (stars), Mask, Texture Paste, Glimmer Mists – Chalkboard Black & Turquoise Blue, Butterflies (Collections), Sentiment Rub Ons (Kaisercraft)




We are going to start by doing a little background altering.

Cut 5 strips from the Paradise patterned paper – cut one a little wider than the other 4.  Attach the wider one first with the grey side facing upwards and the others orange side up to background Blue Moon paper in a similar arrangement.

Add some masking detail –  I used a Twiddleybitz Chevron Template along with some texture paste.


Add some random misting – I first used Chalkboard Black


 Turquoise Blue was then applied over the top.


Cut some thin strips from another contrasting patterned paper and attach in a similar arrangement.

**Another idea – Instead of thin strips of patterned paper Washi Tape or similar would also work well for this step.**  


Cut out 3 of the circle elements from the Banana Boat patterned paper, arrange and attach

**Tip – Attach with foam tape to add a little dimension** 


Position and attach photo.


Now for some flower fun!

Separate the petals of the Kyeesha Orange flower so that there are 3 petals.

Also separate the Kyeesha yellow flower but only remove the back petal.


Position and attach the larger orange and yellow petals to the left of the photo.

Colour mist the 3 larger white flowers from the Party Time mix turquoise blue.

Attach one on top of the orange  petal and another one to the side of it.

Create the rest of the cluster with blue flowers from Party Mix, Wild Rose, Petite Roses, Powder Puff and the centre of the orange Kyeesha petal.


Position and attach the middle orange Kyeesha petal underneath the bottom of the photo.  Add the third misted Party Time flower, another Powder Puff and the of the centre yellow Kyeesha petal.

Position a larger butterfly in the bottom flower cluster and place 2 smaller ones in a position which suits.


Add some black and white sentiment rubons


And you are done!!


Happy Creating!!
