New stuff

YEP I have been scrapping, but not taking photos, naughty me. Some I can share so I will do as soon as I take some photos, and some I can't, but will be in upcoming Australian Scrapbook Ideas Magazines.

I did this layout of my niece and her cousin using some lovely Rasberry papers. The papers just suited these photos as they had that Asian feel that matched the girls' nighties so well. These photos are a few years old, and it was lovely looking back at the girls so much younger.

I have used all Rasberry products on this page, and below are some quick instructions for you to create it yourself.

1. Take one sheet of the Katelyn's Collection: Princess paper and tear along the half circle and curl all the edges back. Using some scallop scissors, cut out another half circle using the first half circle as a guide on the same sheet of paper, making it about 1cm thicker so that you will see it when layered up underneath the first half circle. Adhere these together allowing room to later wedge one of the photos into the top half of it.
2. Take a sheet of the Katelyn's Collection: Tiny Flowers and use the reverse side which is plain red as the background paper. You need to distress and curl up all the edges of this piece as well. Now adhere the double layered half circle onto this piece
3. Take a piece of the Katelyn's Collection: Flowers & Stripes and tear a piece that is 12 inches long by 3 inches wide and curl all edges prior to fixing to the layout. Allow room for the second photo to be wedged underneath the strip on the right side.
4. Round the corners and sand the edges of two 6 x 4 inch photos and adhere them to the layout
5. Cut out various flowers and butterflies to embellish the page and adhere them to the page as well.
6. Transfer letters needed for the title to the white cardstock that comes with the paper pack and cut the letters out prior to adhering them to your page.
7. Lastly place some pearls randomly around the flowers and title to finish off the page.

A couple of days ago, my DT intro was done on the Rasberry blog, and you can check that out here there is also a competition being run to win a heap of Rasberry product, so be sure to check out the blog!

Back soon with some more to share xxx
