Tracey- April Kit- Fabulous Memory

Hey everybody! I'm back at it again with the April kit! How is everybody going with it? have you made much or are you hoarding the gorgeous supplies?

I started this page with white cardstock. I then followed on with my favourite technique- the packaging technique.  For this page I used the Tim Holtz Distress Stain in the colour Wiltled Violet and possibly Wisteria by Kaisercraft (I can't quite remember).

I then took another of the beautiful kit papers and used my Martha Stewart Arbour loop edge punch on one side and stuck that to my page.  I trimmed my photo down to a 4x4 and mounted it to some scrap cream and black patterned paper and then a plain black cardstock and stuck it down.

I then wanted to use some of the delicate vintage lace and some of the purple and gold ribbon from the kit. I threaded the thin ribbon through the centres of the lace and stuck a longer piece to the bottom left corner and a smaller piece to the top right corner, as per usual.

With this months kit, we all received some handmade flairs.  I used the 'Fun Times' flair in a small cluster up on the top righthand corner. I felt like this was helping to ground the ribbon and the lace that was there.

I then used my dice cut machine with the KaiserCraft dies 'fabulous' and 'memory', I just used a plain black cardstock to do this. I felt like the black was too plain with such a busy background, so, I took my gold KindyGlitz and smeared that over the black and allowed it to dry so that I could stick it down.

To finish off my page, I took an assortment of sequins, beads, buttons and the metal flowers from the kit and created a diagonal line from bottom left to top right. I also added the hand knitted purple flower from the kit as well as the silver butterfly.
