MOTHER’S DAY INSPIRATION | April Main Kit by Morag Cutts

Hi friends.  It’s almost Mother’s Day in the USA so this week we are celebrating mums everywhere!  I have used the beautiful April Main Kit to create my pretty layout.

To begin with, I used the packaging technique to lay down some colour onto the white cardstock.  I applied Shimmerz Sweet Heart from the March Color Kit to some cellophane packaging which I then used to apply to the background.  You can control the amount of colour and direction by adding more colour loosely with a medium round paint brush. Use a loose tapping motion to build up ‘splodges’ of colour.

Next, I fussy-cut the Wild Flower (Maggie Holmes – Garden Party). The little flower clusters are so pretty.  I also cut out the tickets from Garden Stroll paper (Maggie Holmes – Garden Party). To assemble the main cluster, I layered the tickets vertically and overlayed the fussy cut flower clusters.

I tucked in the sweet Bunnies & Blooms chipboard pieces and Garden Party phrase thickers.

To create the banner across the top of the page, I used a template shape to hand cut the Gingham Grove paper .  I then sewed the edge of the paper for a little texture, before adding a button to make a ‘faux’ closure. I couldn’t resist adding the cute little chipboard bird and elements to this corner.

I am so proud of my daughter every day so the title came together using the different alphas from April’s Main Kit and the exclusive alphas from the March Main Kit. I love the little puffy Garden Party stickers which add a lovely pretty element to my title.

I do hope I have inspired you to make a pretty Mother’s Day layout.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Don’t forget there is still time to enter the National Scrapbook Day challenges over on our Facebook Group.
