Giselle | Inspiration by Leanne Allinson

Looking for more inspiration? Look no further! Leanne Allinson has been creating up a storm with the Giselle kit. Leanne scraps in 8.5x11 and I love the simplicity of her layouts. The Basic Grey "Curio" collection features a heavily inked border and Leanne has replicated that look after she's trimmed the paper down to size. I love the little peek-a-boo of grid in the top right here.
Leanne has created a gorgeous flower using the dress makers pattern paper, and used the 7Gypsies label stickers to create journaling strips.
Leanne has cleverly used non-Christmas themed papers and embellishments to create a Christmas layout. The bingo card is the perfect background to anchor the photos.
A cluster of embellishments has been layered over the top of the journaling spot to create interest and dimension. Love the little felt flower with doodled edge!
The neutral grey cardstock, and grey tones of the October Afternoon "chalkboard" paper provide a great base for the colourful strips laid over the top. The journaling sticker takes centre stage and is connected using bakers twine. Love the doodled border around the outside edge.
The layers have been created using a combination of patterned paper, sticker strips and twine. A simple spiral flower adds that little something extra and pop.
Join me later this week for more inspiration and how-to tips from the Storyboard Kits design team.

Cheers, Lis.
