Cherish Card and Love Kites Layout - The Scrapbook Store

 Did you know there is a Design Team call at the moment at The Scrapbook Store for Copic Lovers?  You can find all the details 'HERE'.  AND, very soon The Scrapbook Store will carry a huge range of Copics!!  Register with the newsletter to see announcement. 

This month for The Scrapbook Store I had a wonderful time in creating with The Scrap Cake, Sweet Childhood paper's.  The card was using left over bits and pieces from the collection, particularly the 'This and That' paper, and includes the Wooden Kaisercraft Word 'Cherish' - these are really quite gorgeous, and suitable for cards and layouts.

The image is one of my favourite stamp artists, Mo Manning, and is the 'Urchin with Bird', its a beautiful digital stamp!  This is actually one of the very first images I ever coloured, and I kept is as a keep-sake.
The Cherry Blossom die-cut was painted using a variety of colours from the Luminarte Silks Acrylic Glaze Paints. I've taken a few close up photographs, sadly anything with shimmer or metallic surface do not photograph properly.  The colour of the green is not dark as the photographs portray. These paints are extremely beautiful.

and, I also completed a layout for my son Jesse's album, again using The Scrap Cake's Sweet Childhood papers.  I have already created a mini album of this particular 'day at the beach', however really wanted to scrap a layout as well for memories sake.  Jesse loves kites. The papers were fussy cut, adding layers onto the A Child's Love paper, and to create a kite in Jesse's hand, I simply used a needle and thread, and sewed through the photograph to make it appear as if he is holding the kite.
Kaisercraft Wooden Words 'Love', was applied to the top of a journal tag, adding more dimension to the layout.  I love the colour of these wooden words, and yes, they are real wood. 
 The other kites were fussy cut from The Curiosity paper, and Mounting Tape was applied for dimension. Two little kite tails were created from left over papers. 

I'll be back soon with 'more' creations using The Scrap Cake, Sweet Childhood Paper's. 

Do not forget, that The Scrapbook Store has 20% off ALL products till  Christmas Eve as a 3rd birthday celebration!

Hello Sandie
Your card is stunning. I LOVE that sweet image, the soft colours and delicate embellishment work so well together.
The layout for your son looks gorgeous too. I love the way you have added the thread to the photo to make it appear as if he is holding the kite.
Hugs Sue
