Scrapbook Kits with a Difference "Adorable" Layout - The Scrap Cake


You can imagine the ***gasps*** when I opened up my package
& saw that Jules had sent me these gorgeous *The Scrap Cake*
papers to work with for my last kit {February 2012} with 


  You can see my entire kit for sale here - complete with
instructions on how to complete 2 layouts and a bonus card!


This is what I got to work with.



The ribbon at the top is what I used to make the roses at either side of the floral cluster.



I misted and chalked the flowers a bit before clustering them together
so they all "gelled" and blended in a bit more subtly...



This is how it all began!!


I cut a circle out of the printed paper then placed
it on top of the cardstock with the photos.


Hand-journaled (printer STILL at the repair shop!) and a TIP!
See that butterfly on the corner?  That's a good way of covering
up the "join" where your 2 border punches meet (unless you own
a matching 'corner' punch - that I have never bought!).



And there's another butterfly...2 MSC punches layered together...
I have used these punches countless times, they must have
paid for themselves by now!!

Gorgeous creation and I love the aperture with the journalling around the edge of the circle. And its also such a great idea of outline your white rub-on with black - such a clever touch.
