Scraplicious May Projects: Pink Paislee & Graphic 45

Layout 1: Looking up!

This is a ridiculously old photo - from Sophie's FIRST birthday yikes! I've scrapped it before with a very different feel:

Which one do you prefer? Heh..

The more recent version was done with Pink Paislee Queen Bee base paper (I used the reverse side), with interest added by using a punched-out strip of paper as a mask to create the pink edges. I used Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick distress inks for the effect and I must say it is really nice looking! Inside the masked layer, more interest was added with the Unity border stamp (Be Still series). The mask didn't go to waste k, it is next to the Butterfly Garden cutout (of course, the reverse side lah).

Paper cutouts from Pink Paislee Sweetness & Butterfly Garden papers, and a faked "doily" behind one of the roses. That was done with the same Martha Stewart border punch on Core'dinations cardstock, followed by folding the cardstock into a ruffled circle.

Here's the punch:
Martha Stewart punches rock the world!!

Layout 2: 19 months old
It is SO EASY to tell that I have not been sending pictures to print.. oops.. because I'm just using ultra-old pictures that I haven't scrapped before / scrapped already but want to scrap again!

This is the previous version using the same series of pictures:

and the current one using Pink Paislee's Daily Junque:
I love this range to the max for the many tiny little thingies to cut out and layer! *scream* I especially love the effect from the split-tailed flags from the Pink Paislee papers. And the little birdie in the corner with the "A little birdie told me.." quote.

This was a complete mishmash of barangs from all over.. Spot Making Memories (8x8 blue collage paper), Prima (birdcage & flowers), Crate Paper (date and flower chipboards), Hambly's (frame and 2 blue bicycle), 7Gypsies (naked paper tape that's now living behind the flower), Tim Holtz (Sketchbook tissue tape), K&Company (You're my No 1 chipboard). Heng it still turns out quite nice!

TFL and I'll post up picture of the altered project when I am done.. gahh!!
