Hi there Sheena here again x
When I was looking at all the new ranges as they came into the shop, the Pink Paislee Confetti Wishes caught my eye. Its a little brighter than I would normally go for but I thought it would be lovely & cheerful to work with whilst its so cold outside.
As this range, Confetti Wishes is primarily about birthdays I just had to scrap this photo of me & some scrapping friends.
I loved the Confetti Wishes #02 paper with all its different coloured sentiments but rather than use it as it was I cut it into strips, chose the sentiments I preferred and adhered them down the edges of a 12×12 white cardstock sheet. I sewed some of them down with variegated machine thread to add texture and applied some ink to the cardstock using the packaging technique.
After all the sticking and stitching I didn’t want to cover too much of the edges up so I clustered Confetti Wishes die cuts, chipboard pieces and puffy stickers either side of my photo echoing the birthday theme.
Whilst creating my first layout I noticed the tropical feel of some of the Confetti Wishes papers and embellishments and looked through my printed photos for something to go with them & I came across this one.
Again I used white cardstock as my base with a little ink applied. I tore a strip of the Confetti Wishes #05 paper and added it to the left side then machine sewed around the edge of the white cardstock which still showed.
I mounted my photo on various papers from the 6×6 pad before wrapping some twine around it & adhering it down. I used die cuts and puffy stickers to cluster around my photo. The title came about due to the tropical birds in the Confetti Wishes die cut pack. I cut it with my silhouette then painted with a few shimmery paints before adhering down with birds perched on it.
We would love to see your creations not only with this range but any of the many in the Hey Little Magpie shop.
Till next time x
