August - Once Upon a Sketch....

Hi there everyone...thanks so much for popping by today :)

I have a layout to share using my August DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne....Cosmo Cricket - Tea for Two...along with some 2crafty chipboard!

The theme this month at OUAS is seasons.
I chose to scrap a photo from one of our Summer holidays to Norfolk Island.

Here is the sketch...




And here is my layout....



I've used a kraft base that I punched around with Martha Stewart Swirling Lace punch..... with Tea Towel, Cup & Saucer & Butter papers from the Tea for Two range.
Plus I've used a few of the stickers from the Stacked Sticker & Cardstock Sticker packs....as well as a few of the Element Journal tags tucked in behind my photo.






The gorgeous little fence is  a piece cut from the 2crafty "Iron Fence" that comes in a 12" length..and I have simply given it a light coat of gesso...and then lightly misted in Honeydew glimmermist.




My cluster has one of the stickers from the Stacked Stickers pack, with a Manor House Creations flower, Kaisercraft paperbloom, a D'Lish Scraps ribbon flower...and a few flourishes cut using MFT Fancy Flourish die.




Another of the Fancy Flourish die cuts, a piece cut from the 2crafty Iron Fence, a strip of Maya Road chrochet trim & a few more Stacked Stickers





And of course, some journaling, which is one of the criteria at OUAS.


So that's all I have to share for now...but I do have some other news to share regarding Handmade by Suzanne....From next Tuesday (21st) Handmade by Suzanne will be launching a new website & a new business name - The Scrapbook Store!

 

PLUS....Suzanne is having a DT call!!!!
