Lovely || Scrapbook Layout || First Edition 'Sweet Nothings'

Hi all,

Today I have a layout to share with you using the First Edition 'Sweet Nothings' paper pads by Trimcraft. It has a really gorgeous pink, peach and aqua colour scheme, with lots of florals. There's a cut apart sheet (well, 3) in each pad and that is what I used to make this layout. It is a shame that First Edition pads do not have matching embellishments but these cut apart sheets make up for it a lot and allow for a wider variety of creative inspiration. 

The picture I used is a selfie of Nathan and I before a date night. I believe this one was Wagamama (again!)

Step by step:

  1. Cut apart the cut apart sheet in the 'Sweet Nothings' 12x12" paper pad.
  2. Take a 12x12" sheet of bookprint paper and paint gesso across the centre and up and down the left side of the page. Leave to dry.
  3. Paint watercolour onto plastic packaging with plenty of water. Smoosh onto the gessoed areas.
  4. Arrange the long border pieces along the centre of the page at different angles. 
  5. Print a photograph at 4x4" and add other pieces of the cut apart sheet behind it, along with a coloured doily. 
  6. Punch holes in tags and add twine through the holes. 
  7. Stick the 'I love making memories with you' piece on the left side.
  8. Add a length of crochet trim beneath the title.
  9. Finish with adhesive pearls. 
Thanks for stopping by!
