Timeless Photograph 8x8 Layout for ***Cheery Lynn Designs*** + Playing at Lindy's Stamp Gang's March Challenge

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today I'd like to show you how I used my precious "Cheery Lynn Designs"dies. 
This time I made a 8x8 layout again {it's been ages since I did one for Cheery Lynn Designs} using a old picture of my mother in law, she is in her seventies now and on the picture she was just four years old such a cutie pie...
I ordered some foam from England last week because I saw some lovely flowers made out of them on YouTube...and I have to say I LOVE that stuff I am hooked now lol

Timeless Photograph:   
I cut out the flower dies times four then I used my heat gun to curl my flowers. This layout came out so easily. For the flower centers I used some steamen and a diamond gem on top of that. These papers I used are from such a thick quality that it's really easy to distress it. 

In some of the dies I left the cut out bits and pieces because I really think shabby chic is all about that The word stickers are inked with white ink and I added a treat underneath the picture. In my flower clusters I added some cheesecloth.

  I really adore how much depth the flowers have with the foam & dies I used wow. I am totally going to make more flowers with my Cheery Lynn Designs flower dies on my next projects so keep a close eye on this amazing blog.

Cherish the 2 of Us Layout January SOE Be Mine Kit for ***Scraps of Elegance***

Goodmorning everyone, 
I finally had the time to dig into my beautiful January "Scraps of Elegance"Be Mine kit it has some amazing papers from The Blue Fern Studios in it and other amazing add ons. Today I have a layout with two pictures of my handsome husband and I from a couple of years back.

Cherish the 2 of us: 

For this layout I used three of the sheets from the main kit one of the blue/green paper that I cut on the black lines so that I could distress it later on. Then I added a yellow sheet cut up behind the torn one. I also layered another blue/green sheet on top and bottom of my layout.

Then I used a diamond stencil with some paste and on top of that I used a background stamp and some ink sprays. Also I used some feather stamps to add to my flower clusters. The chipboard phrase I cut up and left the word "just"out of this layout and I added a papers strip from the collection with the word "cherish"! The chipboard is treated with gesso, embossing powder & spray.

In the kit there are white hearts that I used as a mold to trace on my patterned papers so I could add two of them on my layout. I stitched the edges from both hearts and then I stamped a script stamps on both of them. The two flowers where made out of a flower die you can use any die to make a flower like this, and in the middle of the flowers I added die cut shapes from the kit.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and have a great week.
