Scrapbooking - I'm a little teacup
Aly, Sidney and Alexandra at Dreamworld in Australia on the teacup ride.
I knew the moment i saw the Kaiser teacup embelishments that they would go with these photo's perfectly.
Also the Craftco paper that i have used with the pink vertical stripes matched the verticle stripes on the photo
So using two if each of two different craftco papers I cut them in half horizontally. Then I joined two of the opposite papers together, to make a 30x30 page again. I used the stripes on the top of the page because i knew that I would soften it laters with words and embellishments. This gave me a base for a double page layout. I matt the photos on pink bazill cardstock, and then used a strip of the same colour across the join of the two pages. Next I added some ribbon that has pearls on it over the top of the bazill across the middle of the two pages. I used Kaiser wooden teapot and teacup embellishments painted pink and edged with pink chalk, and layed them matching on each page, I used kaiser pink bling to make it look as though I was pouring tea into the teacup. I aso used bling on both teapots.
Then I used flowers to soften the page, which I also rubbed with the matching chalk from the teapots and cups. I added spellbinders flourishes in pink to the flowers and then a large bling int he centre of the flowers. I cut out a heart from white cardstock, and used a cuttlebug script embossing folder to add dimension, which I edged witht he chalk again, and rubbed ever so gently over the top of the script writing. I also did a plainer heart with out the emblossing, and added a peelcraft butterfly which I mounted on pink leftover cardstock and attached to the heart, pulling the wings up, to look as though she is flying. Then I cut out Im a little teapot, yes the photo I forgot the ' part. And layed this across both pages.
