Precious Memories – Maggie Holmes – Parasol – Wendy Meffan

Hi Everyone! It’s Wendy here and I’m sharing my second layout for November using American Crafts Maggie Holmes Parasol Collection. This is such a beautiful collection full of gentle pastel colours.

My first layout earlier in the month was predominantly blue and cream, I gutted the 12×12 Notions paper and create a border for the layout. I wanted to show case more of the papers this time and the colours so decided to use strips of several of the papers . I distressed the edges and attached them in a square to white card stock. After this I chain stitched in between each of the strips.

From the previous layout I had made pennants and had one left over so used this to matt my photo. To embellish around the right side of the photo I fussy cut from the 12×12 Parfumerie paper, used  the blue bow from the ephemera pack, fussy cut some flowers from the 6×8 paper pad. I used a die to create some sprigs to dot in around the flowers and also tucked in the cute deer from the ephemera and added a puffy sticker. I then added the velum Precious piece of ephemera over the photo as the title.


To the left side of the photo I used a large chipboard flower, along with a fussy cut flower and some puffy stickers. Again I die cut some gold sprigs which I tucked in behind the flowers. I used some black  heart and leaf stickers from the sticker book just to give some contrast in colour to the layout.

Finally I added a puffy bow onto the photo and some splatters using white gesso

I hope this layout has given some inspiration for this  gorgeous collection.
