Giselle | Inspiration by Kim Arnold

This month, Kim shows how versatile the "Giselle" kit can really be. You wouldn't know that all four layouts came from the same kit!  That's the beauty of mixing up the manufacturers and definitely get more bang for your buck! For this layout, Kim has created a sweet ruffle using the dress makers pattern paper by gathering the paper before adhering. The large flower sticker has also been given dimension by adding foam dots underneath the petals.
Create a cluster of embellishments by trimming out pieces from Cosmo Cricket's circa 1934 elements paper, and combining it with stickers, flowers and journaling spot by Shabby Chic Crafts. Adding foam tape behind some of the elements creates a gorgeous layered look!  Kim's title has been created using a Making Memories slice, then adhered to the Pink Paislee artisan elements frame.
Create a fun edge to your page by using your favourite border punch! How sweet do those little birds look?! Kim has also created a gorgeous spiral flower using the felt from the kit. The felt has been sprayed with mist to change the colour. Peapod twine wrapped around the bottom of the photo and bingo card creates the perfect balance and visual triangle of bottle green on the layout.
Create a layout celebrating your friendships! Here Kim has used the "to do" journaling spot and mini market letters to document the various things Kim and her friend love to do together.  A fun organza bow tied through the tag finishes off this layout beautifully. Love the doily paper layered over the kraft cardstock...a subtle but effective background.
There are only a couple of kits left, so if Kim's layouts have inspired you, and you want a kit for yourself, you will need to act quick! Visit the Storyboard store here.

Cheers, Lis.
