Hi again, Rachel here with my last three LO's using the April City of Lights and Montmarte kits with bits and pieces from the Versailles kit as well.
I only have scraps of paper left and a few embellishments left from the City of Lights and Montmarte kits, but most of the papers still from the Versailles kit. I have done 9 LO's, 1 card, 1 mini album (10 pages) and an altered box all out of mainly the first two kits :-) They go a long way don't they!! :-)
New Baby Doll LO - I had a real hard time choosing which side of the patterned paper to use here as the other size was a lovely dark woodgrain! But in the end I decided to scrap this 5x7 photo of Maddison that I already had printed. The cardstock base and thickers are from my stash, and the brown glittered ribbon is from a previous Studio Calico kit - the colour was perfect :-) I used the backing sheet that the chipboard buttons and banner embellishments were attached to, to mount behind the tag as the shaped edge matched in with the patterned paper shape. I inked the edges of all patterned papers, cardstock and tag with antique linen distress ink. I also used the same ink on the white thickers to make them blend in a bit.
Daffodils LO - Here I just used scalloped circle punch on all the scrap pieces of papers I had left, inked the edges with worn lipstick distress ink and added butterfly stickers, brads, buttons and twine. Everything on this LO is from the kits.
I have a small collection of tissue tape - and the kits I got for April had another three rolls in them! So I decided I would use them to create my own patterned paper. I did add in the orange tape which is from an Amy Tangerine set (available at Scrappin Studio). I just used plain white cardstock from my stash and folded the edges of tape over the cardstock rather than trim it off.
Here's the LO I made. The orange cardstock is from my stash, twine, thickers and brad from the kits.
That's it from me for the April kits :-) Hope you have had fun with them too.
