A layout & A Card

Wow, it has been sometime I did a series of a layout and a card post! So I am back to show you what I did with Basic Grey Nook & Pantry collection that has been added into the store recently. Love the bold colors and they do look a little retro to me, no? :)

A lil' scrappy info:

Instead of using alpha stickers, I doodled the word family from a scrap kraft cardstock with American Crafts felt tip marker. Cut it and used it as a title!

If you know me well, you will notice that I love to cut. My favourite pair of Cutterbee scissors has been my companion from the first day I scrap! At the edges of these flowers I folded to give a natural look to it :)

Banners are very much the "in" thing till today. I top them up with sewing to give a very fun look to it!

These days, I love using my EK Success border & Martha Stewart butterfly punch to add more details to the layout!

Next, I created a card using the same Basic Grey Nook & Pantry collection. This card is pretty suitable for a fruit lover. LOL! Hence I titled it "Happy B'day Fruitie" instead of "Happy Birthday Sweetie" :P

This is a pretty straight-forward card. To add dimension, I cut the fruits out and layer them with foam dots. Also added a red bow to create a balance to the colors. :)

Hope you like the projects and be back soon for other updates! Thank you for dropping by again!
