S is for Shabby Chic - Scrapology August Challenge

This month our Scrapology Challenge was lifting a page by Sandrine Dawes, here is my version using Bo Bunny C'est La Vie papers.

Take the Decoupage paper and gut to 5cm from edge. Trim the white bazzill to 11” square and punch randomly on each side – distress.  Stick to Decoupage sheet adding cut lengths of lace under punched areas. Mount photo onto cream bazzill and distress the edges. Cut a piece from the leftover Decoupage paper to 7 ½” square and a piece of Panache paper to 7 ½ x 4 ½ “ and add to white bazzill at an angle with the mounted photograph.
Punch a decorative deep edge from the cream bazzill and place under the photo.  Add the pre-cut shapes of cream bazzill to the page around the photo (part of the kit contents)

Punch/die cut various flowers from the remaining paper – I followed Hels Sheridan’s rose tutorial to make mine – and add to each side. Punch some hearts and bunting. Add the bunting under the photo – I used enough to create my title which I cut from the Sizzix Cherish Alphabet. Add the hearts – I used the stripy side and added some words to pre-fix my title. Drape the thread around the bunting top adding dew drops to the joins.

Die cut some leaves to add around the flowers. Use remaining thread to dress the buttons and stick to the page along with the extra dewdrops.

The challenge is open until the 5th September, why not hop over to the Scrapology blog for more details.

Thanks for looking
