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.

This layout is also my entry into this month’s Once Upon A Sketch Challenge. The criteria for the challenge this month was to use the below sketch designed by the fabulous Nadia and then the theme was luck. 

 

One of the main criteria for Once Upon a Sketch is to include proper journalling not just a title. I have extended my title with a little journalling on the bottom of my layout but then have more detailed journalling on the tag that is inside the Melissa Frances Vellum Envelope tucked into the left. My journalling reflects how lucky I am in love to have found a husband who is just as dorky and nerdy as I am LOL. The photo is a silly pose we did at our wedding in the midst of professional photos and smiling lots haha.

Don’t forget to head on over to the Once Upon a Sketch Blog here to enter your interpretation of the challenge also. You have until Midnight tonight.
