I have masked my background paper using the Prima Marketing Static 12×12 Stencil and some Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence White. I cannot believe that I have never tried this before cause it looks so cool using the crackle paint eeekk a new favourite technique perhaps…

Most of the fabulous elements used for this page were from the September Cést Magnifique Kit including the fabulous Melissa France Vellum Envelope & Tag that is snuck behind the little birdie doily here…

as well as the fabulous Prima Marketing Say it in Pearls & Crystals Bling Circles. Aren’t they super cute? The flowers vary from Manor House Creations, Kaisercraft, Prima Marketing and Petaloo and the gorgeous double layered buttterflies are also from Petaloo and were also included in the kit.

The chipboard chicken wire is from A2Z Scraplets and has had a very rough coat of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence White. I just love adding these chicken wire/hexagon shapes behind details on my layouts and the best part is that I have used it so much on this layout yet I have only used 1 piece of chipboard so it is sooo worth the $2.50 price tag! Click here to visit the A2Z Scraplets website and order yours today, I usually order in quantities of 10 cause well I love it and use it often LOL.

Daughter True Romance Shabby A2Z Scraplets

Hi everyone! I am back to share a quick layout with you all that I had featured over on the A2Z Scraplets blog late last week.

This layout is titled Daughter and features lots of products from the September Cest Magnifique Kit including the fabulous Kaisercraft True Romance Collection. If you haven’t heard of Cest Magnifique Kit Club then I definately recommend checking them out here. The kits are always stunning and I am always so very happy with the postage time all the way to me in Australia. I get so excited waiting for each kit to come and have been a subscriber on and off for a few years now.

The background piece of Kaisercraft paper has been decorated using an A2Z Scraplets Leaf Stencilet along with some Modelling Paste. The stencil is actually just over 6 inches so I had to do the masking in 2 stages, first I have masked the top right corner and the bottom left corner and dried with my heat gun. I have then masked the remaining two corners and all without any smudging. Drying the Modelling Paste with the heat gun also creates a much nicer clean 3D puffy effect as I heat it till it boils and bubbles. Please be careful if you try this at home as I am certain that it would pop and not be pleasant if you don’t be careful.

While I had my modelling paste out, I have smeared a random amount onto my craft sheet and then I have pressed my A2Z Scraplets Chipboard title down into the modelling paste and lifted up quickly and roughly. This has left a fun texture on the title and was really so very simple, easy and looks super shabby!

The A2Z Scraplets Paisley Chipboard Flourishes have been given a simple misted coat of Heidi Swapp Chantreuse Color Shine Spray which just helped bring out those greens in the beautiful die cut pieces. I just adore the fabulous Kaisercraft True Romance Die Cuts Package and I have used tonnes on this layout but the best part is that I still have literally double if not triple this amount left over for other projects. Love a good value for money product!

The kit from Cest Magnifique Kit Club included these fabulous Melissa Frances Vellum Envelopes and Tags so I have added a satin seam binding bow to the tag and have journalled on before inserting back into the hidden envelope behind my clusters of die cuts.

Amongst the gorgeous layers there are also some A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Hearts that have been smeared with a good peanut butter style coating of modelling paste and then sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Plumeria Pink Flat Fabio Spray. There is also one of the fabulous A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Doilies that I have simply covered with some of the Kaisercraft True Romance Papers and then finished it off by sanding the edges back.

I have added even more dimension to my layout by popping up some of the butterfly die cut wings making it look like they are about to take flight.

Cést Magnifique September Kit
Kaisercraft True Romance Collection Papers, Stickers & Die Cuts
A2Z Scraplets Leaves Stencilet
