Today's guest designer comes all the way from Sweden. Help us welcome Helena Johansson. Helena explains how she created this project.
My favourite Making Memories collection (so far!) is Vintage findings, and I have used these gorgeous papers and embellies over and over again. I made this layout using Vintage findings papers and some embellies, and added Falala-flowers (they worked perfect with this summer-layout, even though they are Christmas-flowers!) and a clear alpha, Funky Chocolate.
I divided the diecut-paper and then put the two pieces together again, with three doilies in different sizes in between. The other two papers, Music Edge findings and Map findings, I’ve distressed and wrinkled the edges a bit.
A close-up of the alpha from Funky Vintage collection, and a golden butterfly.
A little clock-face and gold embossed ephemera, also from Vintage findings.
I’ve put a little stamp from the Vintage findings collection inside the Flutter locket.
Sometimes when I distress the paper edges, the paper rips apart. But I don’t mind that at all, it gives the layout that little “extra”. Notice the little garment pin, they are so cute and you can put them anywhere!
Helena threw in a bonus project for us to also enjoy. She created this bookmark using the scraps she had leftover from her project.
Thanks Helena Johansson for sharing your projects with us.
