Heartfelt Scrapping Page

Part of the brief for Heartfelt Brisbane was to have a range of projects that displayed the technique or class taught. . . so I extended myself and did a scrapping page! Yeah I know that I rarely share my scrapping pages ~ it's not because I don't scrap it is simply a case of the pages and projects that I do are very personal to me or the person who is the subject of the project. . .

So here is a scrapping page of my beautiful mother Charmie-love.
The base cardstock is Crumb Cake on Riding Hood Red.  I have then used a Fan Fair DSP page and stenciled the lattice deign and mounted the lattice which was cut out using the Lattice Bigz die.  I fussy cut the Eiffel Tower from a sheet of the Fan Fair DSP.

Across the bottom I box-pleated another piece of the Fan Fair DSP then stitched it together with embroidery thread on a colour equivalent to Riding Hood Red. Behind the pleated paper is a number of Riding Hood Red Paper Doilies which were cut with the Big Shot Sizzlet and then behind that again I have used Crumb Cake Scalloped Tulle Ribbon highlighted with Champagne Glass Glitter.
The roses were handmade using the Fancy Flower Punch, Riding Hood Red cardstock and Fan Fair DSP which I then daubed with Riding Hood Red ink and sprayed with Crafting Perfumer (Champagne Shimmer Paint diluted with isocol rubbing alcohol).  The leaves were cut using the Little Leaves Sizzlet and the Blossom Builder Punch using the Core'dinations cardstock in Gumball Green. I ran the cardstock through an embossing folder to give them texture and dimension. I interspersed a few Paper Daisies and added a Rhinestone Jewel to the centre of each.
I stamped the title out in Riding Hood Red on Very Vanilla cardstock using the Lovely Letters Alphabet and then fussy cut each letter and glossed them up with Crystal Effects. Every girl has to live a fairy tale. . .
