Welcome and a warm welcome Maja Design friends. Tina Ollett with you here today to share a project created with the gorgeous new release “Little street Cafe'”. This is titled “Coffee and Friends”.
The cute little sentiment that I used to title my project I found on the tear off strips of the patterned papers. This was actually my starting point When I saw this I knew exactly what photo I wanted to use. Our trip to New Zealand a couple of years ago found my girls posing for photos in lots of different settings. This of course was just a backdrop but a perfect setting for a photo. When I looked closely at the Die Cut sheet from this collection I saw that some of the cards had a similar background work. What a great coincidence don’t you think.
You can see oh so beautiful Die Cut sheet below.
I cut the die cut sheet using the frames from each card. I also cut a cute cupcake and also the mini mini teapot with cup and sat it on the table in the middle of the girls. You can see it below. Soooo cute! I also cut the larger tea set and popped it up on 3D foam.
I have used the patterned sheet “Something Sweet” as my background piece. I used a Dusty Attic stencil with some Crackle paste to add texture and some added detail to the background. I wanted to keep the page fairly clean so I decided to use a lot of layering using the papers. I have also used papers from the 6 x 6 pack so there was very little trimming needed for the page. These pieces were distressed sanded and layered alternatively.
I also add in some pretty 49andMarket flowers and some flower pearls to help embellish my layout amongst the fussy cut pieces from the Die Cut sheet that you can see below.
That is all that I really did. Quite a simple yet pretty layout full of layers and gorgeous colour.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what you think. Until next time happy crafting.
