PAPER-CUTS September 2012

Layers.... lots and lots of lovely layers...
This month's kit is feminine, floral and flouncy. If you want to see the kit in detail, go to I decided that the technique of layering would suit the kit very well, so that's what we're covering this month!
Layering is very popular at the moment, be it with paper, masks or stamps, so I thought we'd cover all three! There's lots of detail in this layout, and therefore lots of techniques, so hopefully there'll be something new for everyone to learn in this one!

Here's a little close up of some of the detail:
I've created the title with the Silhouette, if you don't have any large alphas, then you can do exactly the same sort of thing with the Cricut, so have a think of any title you may wish to use. If you have any mists, favourite stamps for backgrounds (see the text in the hearts) and Frayed Burlap Distress ink and sponges you may want to bring them along to speed things up a little. Also - see that heart shape in the background? That is a Heidi Swapp mask that we received in our kits many moons ago... if you can find it, bring it along too!
One last thing, part of the kit includes 6 beautiful note cards from Prima. If you want to use these as layers (as I have done), you may want to choose a photo that you can crop down a little - a 4x6 photo would not fit quite so well on them.
Rightyho... on to project number 2 - another layout. I'm hoping to create something else too, but I think I'll keep that as a surprise for when you arrive!
Hope you like! xxx
