My first Layout is based on Amy's Gorgeous June Sketch.

MK Only

Our daughter, Grace, recently got Bree, a border collie pup. As you can see she is so adorable. Grace plans to train her to show competitively in obedience in the AKC and UKC. She earned every possible obedience title in the UKC with her previous dog, Ellie. 

I used kit cardstock and patterned paper to created these floral beauties to pair up with the gorgeous Prima canvas and burlap flower. Be sure to watch for my tutorial for this "rusted" chipboard flourish. The main kit includes such lovely scrappy treasures like the mesh I painted and distressed and a package of gorgeous Prima gems that can be used in pieces, strips like I used for my butterfly body, or pulled apart and scattered as I did across the bottom of the page.

Next I scrapped this fun photo of my niece showing off her messy fishing hands. I accented with the blues from the lake behind her. 


I used a new TCW stencil on the background and centered my cluster around the gorgeous FAO Prima Zipper flower. I inked the sweet MK Etsy flower and WOC carnation and used metallic paint to color the larger FAO Petaloo Flower. and mists for the smaller Petaloo flowers. I pulled apart a postal box for my corrugated board, painted it white and inked with Donna Salazar's Mix'd Media Inx. This ink works so well with embossing, so I sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set to give the corrugated a wavy, watery texture. I alcohol inked the FAO Maya Road butterflies, and the FAO Prima buttons were tied with a little twine before adhering. I used some Really Reasonable Ribbon twine to create the twine flowers and added some Dusty Attic chipboard leaves. The Layered doilies and clip are from the MK. You can find my twine flower tutorial here

I used the May Dusty Attic May Sketch for inspiration:

Finally, I've saved this mixed media page for last. The girls were having fun dressing up for the photo booth at Elizabeth's wedding, and the colors in Maria's feathered hat are just right for this Sunrise Sunset paper collection.


I wanted to play off this fun photo and colors with mixed media elements. I misted, stenciled, and scattered more of the lovely MK crystals. I also tucked a couple strips of the black crystals around the photo. I just loved using the Prima alpha set in the MK for all three of my pages. The chevron flower was created with the MK vellum and some eyelash yarn in my stash paired with more of the FAO Petaloo and Prima zipper flowers. I also pulled out a couple Prima flowers and a butterfly from previous kits to tuck in. I die cut doilies from kit paper and the orange piece on the left is the negative from a die cut on Abby's fishing page that I inked to brighten up. I used more of that amazing MK mesh and a dusty attic chippie from my stash. Can you spot the Prima packaging I tucked in? 

This lovely May Prima BAP Sketch was used for inspiration:
