WeScrap March Kit Reveal - Her Majesty

This month, it was my turn to create kit layouts for WeScrap, using the yummy March 2011 kit, Her Majesty:

I struggled this month to create my four layouts.  It certainly wasn't because of the papers - they are gorgeous!  I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that a) I haven't been scrapping for a few weeks so my mojo has fled; and b) I have been known to use three or four different patterned papers on ONE layout, so I had to plan out all of my layouts to make sure I had enough papers to go around! :)

As it turns out, I created these four layouts (one is for my Leave Your Legacy challenge tomorrow so I will share it then) PLUS I still have three full sheets of paper/cardstock left and plenty of bits to go around for another layout!

Here are three of my layouts:

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basics cardstock and ribbon; My Mind's Eye patterned paper; Making Memories Slice, Just Chillin' design card, clear pebble and letter stickers; Just Cre8 Going Dotty clear stamp (on heart); Tsukineko Versamark; Sakura pen; staples.

Using my Slice, I cut out the heart from purple cardstock and stamped it with the Going Dotty stamp and Versamark:

My second layout uses my awesome my Stamp Box stamps that I received a few weeks ago from Bettina!

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basics cardstock; KaiserCraft patterned paper; myStamp Box Colourful Companions stamp set; Making Memories teardrop jewels; Jillibean Soup corrugated flower and letter stickers (from Jan 2011 kit); Tsukineko Versamark; Stampendous embossing powder; tulle; embroidery floss and button from my stash.

I stamped my cardstock matte with Versamark and embossed for a deep rich purple.  I pierced the matte and attached the jewels by carefully threading and then tightening the jump rings.

The flower embellishment was easy - I sewed around the edge of one of my tulle circles and gathered it into a tight circle (you can search YouTube for videos on making yoyo flowers for detailed instructions).  I then stitched the button through all three layers of the flower, using embroidery floss and attached to my layout as well!

My last layout uses a candid photo from our wedding by Louise Ross.  I worked with her at the ECBE - she wasn't invited, but as an amateur photographer, she loved to stop at weddings and take photos of the people!  I remember she jotted down our wedding details in her planner and I laughed out loud at the back of the church when I saw her in the last pew, camera in hand!  

After Gary and I were married, we walked out of the church and then snuck back in the side door so we could go out again after everyone had filed out with their bottles of bubbles.  Louise snuck back into the church after us, and caught this photo while we were waiting.

Supplies used:  Bazzill Basics cardstock and ribbon; KaiserCraft patterned paper; Making Memories clear pebbles, resin flowers; Jillibean Soup corrugated flowers; EK Success flower and leaf punches; Martha Stewart border punch; Tsukineko ink; Stampendous embossing powder; Glitz Designs rhinestones; tulle.

I put a Glue dot at each end point of my ribbon and laid a thin strip of Terrifically Tacky tape where I wanted the ribbon to lay.  I affixed each end and then stuck down the ribbon, ruffling it as I went.

I wanted a more uniform look to my cluster of flowers so I inked the back of the corrugated flowers with Chateau Grey ink and then embossed them for a shiny finish.  The tufts of tulle were created by cutting small circles (about 2") of tulle and then bunching them up and sewing them on my layout to fill in the holes.

I'll share my last layout tomorrow with a new Leave Your Legacy challenge!  Thanks for looking!
