FabScraps is the biggest manufacturer of beautiful scrapping products in South Africa. I feel fortunate to be a part of the wonderful Design Team and to work with such beautiful products. A wonderful part of the paper collections is FabScraps also has a whole line of coordinating chip board to match. The Chip board albums are beautiful. Come back soon to see what I do with one of them. FabScraps will be unveiling 2 new collections at CHA and all I can say is GORG!!! Think about those photo's of trips to the sea....Oh my...
The background paper for this layout is C49 003 from the Victoria collection. I paired it with a C49 001 for my accent color. I punched the outer edges with the Martha Stewart punch around the page set. I layered an 8x8 piece of the same background paper design from the Victoria mini paper collection pack and adhered it to the middle. The decorative piece under the photo's is a Martha Stewart Deep edge punch, punched from a strip of C49 001 paper. I punched both sides lining up the design to get the decorative strip.
I created the blue flowers using Heartfelt Creations Botanical Florals stamps with the Spellbinders Rose Creations die. I sprayed Bahama Blue Glimmer Mist and wrinkle distressed them before layering. Then I used Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms with C49 001 to create the smaller flowers in the middle of the layered blue flowers. The result is a beautiful full fantasy rose.
The leafy vines are from the CottageCutz Leafy Foliage die.
I also used the Tattered Pinecone die from Sizzix for additional fill in foliage.
Here is a closeup of the flowers. They could have been easily stamped onto more FabScraps paper, but I didn't want to cut it all up because I am using the blue collection for another layout...
