Earth Love

Cosmo Cricket have released some gorgeous new ranges of paper at CHA, Earth Love is my favourite with lovely muted tones and fab patterns.
I have put together this really quick and simple layout using some of the Earth Love papers and chipboard.

Stash needed.

Earth Love ...Reuse
12x12 chipboard
Background paper, scenic route worn blue grid
Foam pads
Black inkpad and pen
Alphabet stamps
2 6x4 photos


Cut out a semi circle from the reuse paper and scallop the edges on the curved side. Ink the edges and stick it onto your background paper.

Cut a rectangle of paper out of the relieve paper 7" x10", ink the edges and fix this across the centre of your page on top of your scallope.

Matt your two 6x4 photos onto the repeat paper, ink the edges and stick them onto your rectangle.
From the borders paper cut out the sentence "it is hard to measure simple pleasures", stick this down in between the two matted photos. Put to one side the strips of paper that you trimed from the edges you will need them to create your title.

From the elements paper choose one of the journaling blocks, cut it out and stick it slightly underneath the edge of the right hand photo and add your journaling.

Choose a strip from the borders sheet trim it to 11" long and add it along the bottom of your matted photos.The borders sheet also has a strip with the alphabet on it, cut out the letters to form your main title, you will need to choose a title which only needs to use each letter once. Ink the edges and fix them onto your page using foam pads. Use the leftover strips from earlier to stamp the remainder of your title onto.
Add your chipboard bird and heart, cut out one of the hedgehogs from the borders paper and one of the little flowers. Add these to your page.

Hope you enjoy putting this page together :)
