Nana’s Beautiful Boy

The inspiration for this layout came from the free papers that came with an issue of Scrapbook Magazine.  I used:

Kraft cardstock as I wanted the photograph and papers to stand out.  The largest piece of paper with the postage stamp edge was cut out using a ‘Colour my World’ template.  On top of this that I matted was increasing smaller pieces of patterned paper.  On each of these I curled the edges and inked them for definition.

I added pearly paint and caviar beads to my circular embellishments on the top right and bottom left of my photograph.

The letters at the top of the layout are from a set from Heidi Grace, which I then added glossy accents to before sticking them down.  I then drew around each letter with a fine-liner pen.

I rediscovered some little wooden letter tags I forgot I had, which I then inked up the edges and then heat embossed them.  I finished the layout by placing by adding a stenciled man using Cosmic Shimmers, then placed a Sassafras Lass feltie owl on the photograph.

I really like this layout, I hope you like it too!



This is a fab picture of my son, who as a baby and young child was always smiling.  For this layout I used 3 different papers by K&Co (not sure which range as I bought a huge stack as a QVC TSV).

I matted the photograph and inked around the edge in green. On the base paper I used glossy accents on the little mushrooms with red tops and yellow spots.

I cut a wavy/uneven strip of another paper and rolled the edges up a little, I used the right hand side to journal on.  From the final paper I cut the 2 butterflies and the leaves which adorn the side of my photograph.

The letters I used are another QVC buy, but I really like them as they have a word written on each letter which adds to the layout.

Hope you like it.
