Page 2 Girls DT Project- March- Kate

Hoppy March!

And because it is a month before Easter it is the perfect opportunity to grab this lovely collection from We R Memory Keepers- Cotton Tail and team it up with some pretty coordinating embellishments to create some lovely Easter Off (Beyond) The Page pieces or layouts to compliment the season. 

I loved the soft pastels in this collection, it reminds me of all those pretty dyed eggs you see around this time of year, which is a big tradition for some families. Funnily enough, my projects I am showing you today don't have an Easter theme, so I will demonstrate to you that they can be used for non-Easter crafts. 

There's No Bunny Like You

  • I have had this Kaisercraft Beyond the Page Arrow album for awhile. You could use any shape of MDF type board to make this. Pages 2 Scrap sells a range of Beyond the Page products and even strong chipboard could be used in lieu. I used ONE page from this package.

  • I raided my Kaisercraft paint and found a number of tubes to coordinate with the colours in the WRMK collection- Cotton Tail which I was using. I used my finger to spread different layers of paint over my board.

  • Using the Pink Paislee Daily Junque Printed sheets, I tore bits off it and glued them at various positions on the board.

  • I cut a sentiment from the Glitter Paper WRMK- Cotton Tail Sentiments sheet, I traced around the edge with white paint using my finger and then foam taped it for dimension to the centre of my board. At this stage, I used the rest of the white paint and my finger, once again to trace around the edges of the MDF.

  • When I was in Pages 2 Scrap for a shop, I browsed through the clearance baskets and came across a bargain with the Kaiser Secret Bird Society Chipboard. I knew it would match perfectly with these WRMK colours! So I also painted around the edges of each piece with white paint and my trusty finger again!! And adhered using foam tape to either side of the sentiment.

  • A perfect time to add in a WRMK Cotton Tail Embossed Sticker- Butterfly. I also used some Glitzin Glamour (Purple) on my finger and added some sparkle to my board. Optional: you could also do some stamping on your board like I did with my Kaiser Background Stamps.

  • And there you have it! Add some little extras like more WRMK Cotton Tail Embossed Stickers, Kaiser Paper Blooms, and some green Bloomers trim! All available at Pages 2 Scrap! Easy!

I took the opportunity to do two layouts using the WRMK Cotton Tail range as well. 

Cute as a Bunny
- Use sentiments off the papers as titles on your layouts instead of alphas.
- Cut your own leaves from green papers.
- The WRMK embossed stickers leave a lovely embossed image on the backing paper of the sticker, use this as a flower as well!!
