LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever by Kim Ewins

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever

Hello again dear crafty friends! Kim here with another share my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever using the beautiful, LemonCraft Violet Silence collection. Such a lovely selection of prettiness! Teamed with a little Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxide in Wilted Violet and a few other pretties this layout came together quite quickly.

Here is my layout featuring my daughter, Samantha & her soon to be husband, Jake.

To create this background I took the sheet of LemonCraft Violet Silence paper 02, Tim Holtz Range Distress Oxide in Wilted Violet and a blender (I couldn’t find my blending tool, so I used a make-up sponge.) I added a little of the Distress Oxide to the sponge and went in and applied it roughly the centre of the page and trailing off the bottom of the page. I knew where I wanted my photo to sit, so I made sure to extend the oxide out. Next I spritzed a little water into my hand and then let the water droplets fall over the inked area at random. I then went in with some paper towel and dabbed up the excess water. Once this was dry I stuck two 1 cm x 20 cm strips of coordinating paper into place, under where my photo will sit. I then took some satin seam binding (cream ribbon) and purple ribbon, roughly 36 cm in length & tied them into a simple bow. I tied the bow more to the left of the lengths, giving me one short tail and one long tail, so I could drape it across the bottom of my photo.

Next, I matted my photo on a piece of leftover Violet Silence Paper 03, measuring 11 cm x 11 cm. My photo measured 10 cm x 10 cm. I stuck some cardboard from an unused pizza box to the bottom of my matted photo, to add a bit of height to my pic. I stuck the bows into place then stuck down my photo and arranged the long tails of the ribbon to twist and turn to add interest, once happy I stuck into place.Then I tucked some fussy cut flowers from the Violet Silence Paper 03 and also some flowers from the Violet Silence-Vintage Times 17 sheet. I also added some old lace & lace flowers I had laying around. A few flowers….. Prima Lavendar-Milane Paper Flowers never go astray and either does a fussy cut butterfly!

I am a big fan of machine stitching on layouts, so I decided to add two lines of stitching around my layout, but I stopped at the flower design on the paper. *Tip* When machine stitching on my layouts I like to use Topstitch or upholstery thread. This is thicker than your normal thread and gives a nicer result.

Next I added my title, I used stickers and matted them & carefully distressed the edges. Adding a little cardboard to the back to raise them slightly. Last but not least I added some Artquest Mini Prills in I Cannot Tell a Lilac

I do hope you have been inspired by my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Forever. I really enjoyed creating this layout and I simply love the colours!

LemonCraft Violet Silence Card by Kim Ewins

LemonCraft Violet Silence Card

Hello…hello! Kim here with you today to share another of my creations made with the very pretty ‘Violet Silence’ range from LemonCraft. Today I am sharing with you my LemonCraft Violet Silence Card which I made with a little fussy cutting and a few other touches I will touch on below!

First let me show you the card.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Card

To make this card I used the LemonCraft, Violet Silence paper 03 for the base paper, (I used the B side). I cut this to the required size, using the centre of the paper as I liked the weatherboard look. I like to leave a border of the actual card showing. Next I took some Lindy’s magical shaker in Polka Purple and sprinkled a little on my paper, then spritzed with a little water and then let it dry. Taking the same sheet of paper I then fussy cut one of the flower sections out from the A side and stuck it into place. Then I cut a strip of leftover Violet Silence paper, 2cm wide x the width of the card and added a piece of thick card to the back using double-sided tape and stuck into place. Next I made up a little Lindy’s Magical Shaker  Polka Purple wash using a little water, and paint this onto the raised strip of paper.

I then added a gorgeous 49 Market seaside bloom flower and leaves / fronds HERE, and a couple of pretty little Prima blooms. Next I fussy cut a butterfly….to get the curled wing effect, use a handle of a paintbrush and gentle curl the wings over the handle. Cut another strip of paper from the Violet Silence 03 paper (weatherboard side), around 5.5cm x 1.2cm, trim one end into a dove tail and distress the edges, stick into place. Take some ribbon and make a double bow, stick under the edge of the large flower.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Card

Next I stuck some of the super gorgeous, Artquest Mini Prills-I Cannot tell a Lilac around my project. I then stuck a sentiment into place. Finally using some of the leftover Lindy’s Magical shaker Polka Purple wash, I splattered a little extra around my project.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my creation and I hope I have inspired you to get creating with my LemonCraft Violet Silence Card!

Until next time Happy Crafting

Hi There, Debra here popping in with another share my MFT Stamps Card YOU and ME using the fabulous stamps and co-ordinating die from MFT called “TOUCAN DO IT”.

I then worked on the background of the card using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides – Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean.

Then using an MFT Stencil along with Peacock Feathers to I created the rays the inside part of the heart.

I used the MFT sentiment called More Essential Sentiments with black ink on a small piece of white card.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday by Kim Ewins

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday

Hello!!  Briony here, popping in briefly to share some super exciting news today!  We are so very happy to announce a new Design Team member to join our little family …. KIM EWINS!  Kim has such a gorgeous style of scrapping that I know will inspire many.   Here a few words from Kim and her LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday. …

++++++++++++++++++++

Hello everyone…. boy am I super excited to be here designing for Anna’s Craft Cupboard!

For those of you that don’t know me, I would like to share a little bit about myself and my crafting ventures to date.

 My name is Kim Ewins, my husband and I have eight-Yes, you read correctly *8- children, consisting of 5 sons and 3 daughters. Only 3 of our children are still living at home. I also have 2 gorgeous grandsons.

 I live in the Central Tablelands region of NSW. I try to keep healthy, and I have recently started working after 27-years of raising children.

I first ventured into scrapbooking around 10 or 11 years ago, after my youngest child was born, and it became a real passion. I perused a lot of the online scrapping forums, entered challenges, scrapped with friends, attended the Brisbane Scrapbooking Expo and just really enjoyed my creative time.

I have designed for a few online challenge sites and shops including Stuck Sketches, CSI Color Stories Inspiration, Scrap Around the World, Scrap the Boys, Craft Queen, Scrapmatts, and Scrappy Chat Designs. I have also been published in Scrapbooking Memories on numerous occasions.

Furthermore, I have had the pleasure of teaching and demonstrating at The Brisbane Scrapbooking & Papercraft Expo and, on occasion, I am invited to conduct classes in smaller communities.

I love to create layouts, cards and gift tags. I enjoy working with neutral and pastel colours, but I think I am pretty versatile. With two grandsons on the scene, I can see myself scrapping with a few brights as well. I love a bit of grunge, and I also play with lots of layers and texture.

I am truly hoping to add even more inspiration to the already amazing team here at Anna’s Craft Cupboard.

Hello there! Kim here to share with you my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday.

A very pretty range, indeed. Perfect colours for this photo of my daughter, Sidney. LemonCraft Violet Silence is now available in Anna’s store, HERE

Here is my layout ‘Friday’

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday

I added a little extra texture to my base paper by using texture paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. Once the texture paste was dry I then placed a small amount of Lindy’s Magical shaker in Polka Purple to a small amount of water and using a paint brush added it over some of the stencil work.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday

Next I matted my photo using Violet Silence paper No 5, and added an additional layer using the same paper but using the reverse side.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday

I added a selection of Prima Lavendar-Milane Paper Flowers. I also fussy cut a few flowers from the Vintage Times sheet and added these to my cluster. Then, I fussy cut a butterfly, added some micro beads from a gorgeous little pot of ‘I Cannot Tell a Lilac’ HERE.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday

I splattered a little of the Lindy’s Magical shaker- Polka Purple and a touch of black ink around. Lastly, using some Tom Holtz Distress Oxide in wilted violet and a length of stiff cardboard I went around the outer edge of my layout, roughly 3mm in from edge, to create a little border.

LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday

I really hope you have enjoyed looking at my LemonCraft Violet Silence Layout Friday today as much as I enjoyed creating it!

The Violet Silence collection from LemonCraft is a stunner!
