I was so excited to receive my A Piece Of Cake Designs kit in the mail just a few days ago and couldn’t wait to begin. It’s such a versatile kit where you could go completely feminine or fun and ultra modern with your creations.
For my first layout I’ve used lots of bits and pieces starting with the Studio Calico printed vellum paper which I distressed by adding some tiny tears and curled the edges and then added layers from the papers in the kit. I love to include things such as the sample strip from the bottom of the papers, barcodes and collection titles in my layers, in fact anything goes! All these little things add so much personality and interest to a page.
I’m also a big fan of torn washi tape, and I was so thrilled to find a roll in the kit – instant distress! Adding your photograph and layering one of the wooden polaroid frames on top gives lots of dimension to your layout as well as creating focus. The giant sequins and paper flower really finish the look of the whole page adding a feminine touch and lastly I tore the strip of white cardstock from the bottom of the page adding black cardstock for a blast of contrast. This was an afterthought (shhhh, dont tell anyone!) but it works really well and gives so much balance.
Thanks for dropping in, I hope you find some inspiration from my creation!
