May Scrapbooking Layout

I am a little late in showing these as the class was last month, but better late than never!

The first layout was very soft and subtle, using colours from the "Subtles" family.  To save our cardstock we gutted the main Perfect Plum 12x12 sheet behind the Very Vanilla layer, by "gutting" this means cutting out a section that is going to be hidden by another layer.  We then used the "gutted" piece on the layout over the large Vanilla, waste not want not!!

The bunting was created using one of the new stamp sets from the mini called "Four Frames", which by the way, I love!  We used the co-ordinating Decorative Label punch to punch out each image with ease then cut them in half to create our bunting, linen thread acted as our line.  Our title was stamped using the "Just Perfect" Alphabet set which we punched out with the 3/4" Circle Punch and adhered to the bunting.
We used the Big Shot Machine to die cut our Butterflies using the "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz die and Sizzles for the Leaves and Label.

The flower in the top right corner of the photograph was punched out using the 5 Petal Flower Punch and we added a Bitty Button to the centre tying a know with a slither of cardstock.

We used the "Wedding Sweet" stamp set for our background on the Perfect Plum base layer and also the larger swirl stamp on the Vanilla layer, you will have to double click on the layout to get an enlarged image to view this.
