Scraptastic Design Team – Happy Mermaids

Hello! I’m back with another Scraptastic Design Team layout featuring the May 2016 Cake by the Ocean Kit!


May 2016 Cake by the Ocean Kit by Scraptastic Club

For this week’s layout, I teamed up with Alex, a fellow design team member, and we used this as our inspiration piece:


And here’s my take with a different twist!




Last week I was involved in a very active fairy tale in which  my daughter and I pretended to be princess mermaid sisters. According to my little moppet, we are getting ready to attend a party. And since we were attending this party during the winter time, it was customary for us to wear our princess tiaras on the outside of our winter hats.

It’s a thing. 🙂

Using the exclusive Scraptastic stencil and my cutting knife, I cut the stenciled image to create a raised background. I backed the raised circles with pink patterned paper – the color is subtle and very much visible when looking closely at the layout. I created layers around the photos using an exclusive Scraptastic tag and die cuts from the Paige Evans Fancy Free Collection (Pink Paislee). I finished the layout with a cute title using the die cut word “happy” from the same collection in addition to velum  letter stickers by Pink Fresh Studio.
