The Anna Griffin Valentina range is designed for layouts about love! Although Sue's layout is about love, it is the love between a mother and daughter. Sue has used the collection to create a layout with a lovely pink, red and cream colour palette. There are beautiful specialty papers in the Anna Griffin ranges and Sue has made use of 4 of them! Sue loved the Pearl Label corrugated cardstock and this was the starting point for her layout.
She then used the Pink Hearts flocked and die-cut cardstock over the top of the corrugated cardstock and trimmed off the excess. Sue felt it needed a little touch of red so she used one of the red patterned papers to create a border around the label shape. Stitching has been used to hold all three layers together. One of the decorative papers in the Valentina collection is called Ivory Lace die-cut cardstock and it has a beautiful scalloped lacy edge.
Instead of using the paper as a whole, Sue cut off the decorative borders, sprayed them with a pink Glimmer Mist and used them on her page as scalloped border pieces, layered one on top of each other. To make them stand out on the layout, Sue first backed them with a red script patterned paper also from the collection. Another of the decorative papers is the Pink Hearts Stitched cardstock. Sue cut three of the hearts out of the paper and used them for embellishments.
Using one of the hearts as a template, Sue also cut two more hearts out of the Pink Damask flocked paper, one of which she has stamped over with Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards stamps. Prima flowers, tulle and Jenni Bowlin buttons have been used to finish off this pretty page.
In this page Janine used the Fido range from Anna Griffin, but omitted the cute pet images to show that a range can be far more versatile than originally thought. These papers have been designed for pet pages, but the gorgeous spring colours inspired Janine to create a flower filled LO in spring colours. Janine has combined the Anna Griffin dimensional flower stickers with Prima blooms and handcut floral elements for a feast of layered prettiness.
The whole layout is based on layers of hand cut scalloped paper. Janine traced around a decorative edged paper and then hand cut with scissors. Finishing off the whole design is the amazing script chipboard alphabet by Anna Griffin adding a touch of elegance to the Layout.
Anna Griffin papers are known for their elegance and this LO by Steph Devlin is all about elegance She has used the Anna Griffin flocked papers to perfection and kept the palette monochromatic which is a divine touch. Steph also coloured the dangling beads on her Prima flower with markers to keep the monochromatic effect of her LO. Thanks for sharing such a stunning layout with us Steph.
This gorgeous layout was created by the amazing Stephanie Howell. Stephanie has used the Ivory Lace die-cut cardstock from the Anna Griffin range as the backdrop for her stunning page. The elegance of the die-cut sets off the simplicity of Stephanie's design. She has captured her emotion of 'pure bliss' perfectly. Thanks Stephanie for allowing us to share your page.
