Text Chat

It seems like ages since I last posted on here but it has only been a week! I have been really busy creating for something which I am so excited about, I am counting down the days until I can spill the beans and reveal all! In the meantime I thought I would share a layout that I created yesterday using more gorgeous Websters Pages, this time Spring Market which I got from Scrap Revolution. If you are looking for some Websters stash then Lorraine stocks a great selection.
I had some layouts on my dinning room table waiting to be photographed and all but one were of Rebecca so I decided that I had to use a photo of Emily for this page. I took this one on our recent trip to Kingston Lacy, I think it was my favourite photo of the day and was the perfect colour match for the paper range.


I created the butterflies using a Websters Itty Bitty stamp, I stamped the image using distress inks onto some patterned paper and then cut them out. I added more colour onto the butterfly using a cotton bud and more of the distress inks and then used walnut stickles to create the body. This stamp is so versatile, I have used it directly onto the background paper too.




I added some Websters netting to the circle, to cut the circle out I drew out my shape onto a scrap of paper and then pinned that to the netting and carefully cut around it. I secured the netting using a tiny bit of glue just to hold it into place while I ran it through the sewing machine. I was really pleased with the finished look and it adds great texture to the page.


We have got Emily's prom on Friday, I am so excited to see her all dressed up, I have warned her that I am going to have to take LOTS of photos!!

Hi Rachael, thought I would call by your blog and say hello. Thanks for 'befriending' me at Inspire Me, its always nice to meet someone new. I love your beautiful pages , gorgeous colour choices and pretty details. I don't go to the inspire site much....not because I don,t like Websters, quite the opposite, I love it and use it on just about every thing I do, I just never think to show it. Thanks again. xx
