Lemonlush meets Doo Lally Pip!

Hello Everyone

Here is another sample created by Nicky for the Scrapstars Retreat and I think is my favourite of those she made.

As you can see it is a photo frame (an old cardboard one that wasn't being used) which Nicky has covered with the beautiful Lemonlush paper 'Flighty'. As well as being covered with beautiful butterflies this paper has this wonderful quote which has been made such a feature of.  Nicky has cut out lots of the butterflies which are lifted with Silicone Glue, giving the impression of depth and movement.  To finish off Nicky has stamped and coloured the 'Doo Lally Pip Keep Dancing' stamp by Lindsay Mason which adds a really fun element.

I am sure you will agree that this is really lovely and something a little bit different.

Back soon with some more samples.

Hi Everyone

If you enjoyed looking through the photos from Scrapstars on our previous post you will probably have noticed that there were lots of samples of layouts and cards, created by the team, and I have just realised that I haven't shown you these properly yet.

So today I will start with this lovely layout created by Nicky.

'Love You' by Nicky Parry

This pretty layout uses a selection of papers from the Simple Stories 'Homespun' range.  Nicky has created a frame for this lovely photo of her daughter using the 'Grey Wood/Grid' paper which sits on the pretty floral 'Beautiful Life' paper and then cut elements from the 'Title & Border Strip' paper and made her own fish-tail banners at the top.  The 'Love' letters are cut from the 'Title & Border Strip' paper and the small 'you' letters are the Studio Calico 'Essentials Tiny Alpha Stickers - Blue/Aqua'.  Nicky added her own doilies which adds a nice depth and works well with the homely feel of this range.

Back with more tomorrow.
