My Scrapbooking

Lilac Avenue

blogged by me domestic goddess On 3/04/2010 08:29:00 PM
At the weekend I taught at my local crop. I used the very pretty papers, "Lilac Avenue" from Kaiser Craft.
All we used were the 6" x 6" pad. These pads are so versatile. I designed a 12" x 12" layout and a mini book, and there was probaly half the pad left! At the back of all Kaiser Craft pads are 4 pages of co-ordinating diecuts, from edges to journaling spots; I am addicted to them!

I used a photo from our holiday last April to Provence. The colours that surrounded us were so beautiful and I was obsessed with capturing alleys and front/back doors at every turn.

I made paper roses and leaves using the papers. Although these papers were not double sided, use glimmer mist, or ink to add colour to the edges. See here for my flower tutorial

I also used my trusty Martha Stewart corner Punch and border punches; still loving these!

Supplies :  Kaiser Crafts Lilac Avenue, Bazzill cardstock, Martha Stewart Punches
