Featured Collection: Miss Caroline
I can tell you that hands down the Dilly Dally Collection may be my all time favorite! I love the colors, and the carnival feel to the papers! I used the sketch as a starting point of the layering of my papers. I did use a horizontal photo of my children. So glad to see a nice photo of all three of them at one time. I did change the color to black, and white. I thought it paired better with the Dilly Dally Curious plank paper. To follow the scallops borders on the sketch, I used a ticket die to create ticket borders. I tend to like clean lines when I am scrapbooking ,but love the creating the angels to further create movement onto my page.
So many possibilities with this collection. Just in time for summer!
Perfect the way as you are by Anam Stubbington
Featured Products: Follow your Heart ‘Be Happy’ 6x6 paper pad, chipboard, brads, layers cardstock stickers and two of the clips from the ‘Be Amazing’ range.
“Fay and Lily – my beautiful amazing girls – playing with their shadows during the summer of 2011 – I am constantly humbled by the fact they are my own wonderful daughters. I hope they always remember that I love them very much. March 2012”
Instructions: just trim the 6x6” paper and distress the edges. I used just one sheet of each design from the pad. I also cut the chipboard so I could use the rest on other projects to make the most of the chipboard.
We can’t wait to see what you create! Good luck!
