Just You, Me, Mother Nature and Fiskars

by Beckie Dreyer | May 2, 2013

Good Morning RRBF, I hope this finds you well!  

I am super excited that Fiskars has sent some fabby products for the DT to use this month and I've had a blast using them on my projects.

One of the themes that you will see featured on the RRBF blog this May is 'Mother's day'.  In the UK we have already celebrated this special day and I enjoyed every minute of it!  Today I have a layout to share with you capturing the fun my mum and I had while spending some time together.

We seriously laughed so much taking this photo and believe me when I say there were many pictures taken!!

I used the stunning Mother Nature range as it coordinated with the hues on my photo.  The soft pastel colours with the outside feel really stand out in this range.  With the papers having such beautiful patterns I really didn't want to cover them up so I used my craft knife to cut along the lines of some of the drawings, as shown below, to make a slit.

This meant that when I came to add the paper I could by tucking it into the back therefore not hiding any of the detailed drawing.

The Fiskars Romantique 3-in-1 corner punch add some elegant detail to the edges of my photo and the mat it was placed on.  I love how easy these punches are to use and having three designs on one punch ... Bonus!

The Fiskars Jeniie Bowlin Quilt Star Squeeze punch came in perfectly for creating little leaves for the quilled flowers.

I just simply punched out a star and then gently pressed the centre to give it some shape.  I then layered a couple up before adding a quilled flower to the centre.
