Pemberley Workshop Preview! Layout #3!

I found some pictures from Easter of last year and was so excited that they would go really well with the Pemberley Kit from Close to my Heart! My son had worn a brown outfit and the shades of paper and cardstock in the kit were the perfect fit!

Pemberley Workshop Scrapbook Layout #3: Based on "Love Potion" pattern from the How to Book titled "Magic" pg 18
Desert Sand was the perfect page base to build upon with the navy patterned side of the coordinating paper. I hand trimmed the butterfly to symbolize spring. One of the other coordinating papers has a print that is a pattern of hexagons linked together. I hand trimmed them and cut them apart, then scattered them on my pages and spaced them apart in a honeycomb pattern. Honeycombs are very trendy right now!

One of my absolute favorite techniques to use is to stamp on a dark brown, kraft brown, brown bag, or desert sand colored cardstock with an also dark ink- then color it in with white or light colored shades of gel pen ink and colored pencil. The effects are simple and beautiful!

When I created this layout I also kept in mind the inspiration of the "Picture Perfect Challenge" from the Heart 2 Heart blog. The ques I took from the inspiration photo were that repeated shapes, the crisp white against the desert sand brown, the lined up squares of the photos on the wall, and empty space on the wall by the window.

I will add a cricut cut title in Colonial White or Bamboo card stock later. You can easily create a variation on this layout by flipping over the papers to use the other side. This would work with the honeycomb cutouts too, they would be yellow patterend shapes instead.

What I used:
Desert Sand and Bamboo Cardstock
Bamboo and Outdoor Denim Ink
B&T Duo Papers
Card Word Puzzle Stamp Set (Butterfly)
Pemberley Stamp Set (Rope)
White Gel Pen
White Colored Pencil
Yellow Colored Pencil
How to Book, "Magic"
Micro Tip Scissors

  4. I love this layout... love what you did with the butterfly and the octagons!

  5. Very pretty layout! I especially love how you cut out elements of the B&T to make the patterns less "busy." Thanks for taking the H2H photo inspiration challenge!

  6. This is so pretty. I love the hexagons across the the page. I also love the way you colored the butterflies. Just lovely. Thanks for playing this week at H2H!
