Beautiful Moments Together for Scraps of Elegance

Hello dear scrappy ones!I created this layout as a Design Team project for Scraps of Elegance using the beautiful  February kit, "Lisa's Love Letters", which contained this wonderful Prima paper from the Epiphany collection.

I recently came across this old photo of my mother as a bridesmaid at her brother's wedding, standing with her lovely new sister-in-law; I know this was in the early 1950s.

I loved the paper so much I didn't want to cover too much of it up with layers, so instead I chose to pop up some of the butterflies and birdcages for dimension and add subtle white stencilling. The sweet crocheted flowers are from the Epiphany collection as well; I inked the edges to create a bit of contrast. Thanks so much for stopping by; I appreciate every single visit!

Whimsical Cards for Gina's Designs

 hi! Lynne here with some "just because" cards  (which happen to be my favourite kind of cards to give!) Creating these cards was interesting for me, as I very seldom venture into the wild world of stamping, but I had a lot of fun with these! 

The chipboard frame and dragonflies were heat-embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang powder, then sponged with purple ink- I really love purple, as you can see!
