Elegant Lady ~ Scraps of Elegance March Kit

Hello there, Scraps of Elegance fans! 

Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing my first project using the March Scraps of Elegance Kit "Hello, Beautiful!" And wow, this kit really is so gorgeous! 

I was super excited when I found out that the featured paper this month would be Graphic 45's Portrait of a Lady! And of course, it did not disappoint! 

I decided to scrap a bridal photo of my niece, Karen for my first project. Stripes and florals used together are always a winning combination, so I've used the Catherine paper as my base and layered some floral paper, Victoria. Isn't it divine? For photo layers, I've used the dark green back side of Catherine as well as the light green from Scrapberry's Camera. I also may a few die cut paper doilies from cream Graphic 45 card stock from my stash. 

It was so fun to start choosing embellishments from the Main Kit and Elements Kit add-ons such as the beautiful gold Prima Floral Lace. If you look closely, you can also spy the Prima Vintage Trinket to the left of my photo. Those Memory Hardware pieces are amazing! I lined mine with some of the Victoria paper. For flowers, I've used Prima flowers from the main kit but also Prima and Petaloo from the Floral add-on Kit! 

The Portrait of a Lady chipboard pieces are gorgeous and are from the Elements add-on Kit. I tied this one with some twine that was wrapped around a bundle of flowers in the Main Kit.  The addition of some petals balances it off and keeps it feminine. 

This is more of the same although I did add in some pearls. My mixed media is very light on this project. Just some light stenciling and then the addition of lots of Art Stones from my stash. 

This is going towards the upper right hand corner of the page where I've used the florals as layers and added some thread and art stones from my stash. 

Just a quick dimensional shot! 

And one more from the other side! 

Although this kit is sold out, we have lots of great products in the Scraps of Elegance Store.  You'll want to check everything out while you're getting info about subscribing for any of the Kits! 

Okay, I'm ready to get back to my scrap table! How about you? 
Thanks for coming by!
