Hello everyone. Remember back in March when I shared the photos of my Downton Abbey Birthday Get-together with the girls? My blog post was actually about the great moustaches and treat cones that I had made for our Downton marathon, which you can read here. Well, fast forward to yesterday....
I finally made time to sit down and scrap my Downton B-day photos!!! I used my Silhouette to cut the embellishments and letters used on the layout. Have I mentioned that I ADORE my Silhouette Cameo? I honestly cannot believe I took so long to begin using it. I am completely hooked and could only be happier if I discovered that I could use the Cameo and my Expression 2 at the same time (technically I should be able to do this, but I have not actually tried).
I found a great cut at the silhouette store - the "Nice stache" cut pictured above. I also found the fun film strip during the same silhouette store shopping trip. I had some of the moustache photos printed in wallet size and they *just* fit the frames in the strip! How perfect were those cuts for this page?
On another trip to the silhouette store (I do like browsing there!) I found these three vintage women - Perfect for Downton Abbey. Those who watch the show on PBS know that there are three adult daughters in the show. I have named the women in the cut after the characters: the woman with her hand on her hip as Lady Mary, the defensive posed woman in the middle is Lady Edith, and Lady Sybil is on the right - looking to her future beyond Downton Abbey. I "had" to add the three women to the page.
I used several flourish cuts to embellish the page, as well as a really pretty font to cut my title phrase: Downton Abbey Night.
I hand trimmed a photo of the popcorn cones and added it to right-hand page. After I took the photographs I went back and found one of our moustaches and added it to the right hand page, beside the 5 x 7 inch photo, over the swirls.
My friends and I had decided that for scrapbookers, we needed to be better about documenting our time together. Well ladies, I am making a start!!!
Thanks for stopping by today and viewing my Downton/Birthday layout. I will be back tomorrow as I have more new projects to share with you....
