Any One For Tea?

Hi, I would like to welcome the new members of our DT to the Wow Family.
I'm very happy to part of Wow and it's great seeing a small company growing into a large brand name in the Australian Scrapping industry.
I've been working on a lot of projects using Wow Chippies which will be coming up in the next few months in Scrapbook Creations, I just finished working on a beautiful New Christmas Tree designed by Suzanne which is going to be a step by step project, as well as a Christmas Mini Album in the Christmas issue.
This month I've created a layout using the New Teapot Set and Rose which will be available in August.
 I thought I would do quick step by steps so you can create this layout too.
You Need:
  • 4 double sided matching papers I used The Girl's Paperie Jubilee.
  • Pearl Strip,
  • 4x6 photo,
  • 2 Pearl Head Pins,
  • A Doily,
  • Alphas For Title.
  • Lace Trim,
  • Small Flower.
  • Basic Tool Kit
  • Border Punch.
  • File Set or Sand Paper,
  • Sewing Machine,
  • White Paint or Gesso,
  • Markers, (Colours to match papers)
  • Dimensional  Magic,
  1. Cut a 9 inch square out of paper, distress around the edges and adhere on a angle in the middle of  the back ground paper, using the sewing machine sew around the edges of the 9 inch square.
  2. Distress around the edges of the back ground paper.
  3. Cut a 12 x4 inch piece of paper and on the right hand side use a border punch, distress around the edges, then adhere it into place on top of the 9 inch square towards the bottom, (see photo) and sew around the edges.
  4. Using the border punch cut out two stripes, about 11 inches long, you need the stripes to over lap, so make one wider than the other, distress around the edges, then mount one on top of the other using mounting tape, then adhere using tape on top of the 12x4 paper, (see photos).
  5. Wrap a piece of lace trim around the layout and tie with a bow.
  6. Mount your photo onto paper, distress around the edges, add pearl stripes around photo and adhere to the layout on the left hand side, move bow so it sits on the right hand side of the photo, ( I used tape and mounting tape so it was raised up a little).
  7. Cut a doily in half and sew it to the left hand side of your photo.
  8. Colour in your teapot set and the top of the rose using markers, then go around the edges with white paint or gesso and finish using dimensional magic on the dots and the rose top, leave to dry.
  9. Cover the bottom of the rose with paper, cut and file or sand around the edges, adhere rose top on top when dry and adhere on the left hand side of photo using mounting tape.
  10. Adhere the teapot set using mounting tape on the right hand side of photo and add a small flower, (see photos).
  11. Rip part of the back ground paper at the right hand top and add part of the doily to the back, then adhere a piece of paper to the back of the doily.
  12. Making the flags fold a piece of paper and cut it into a flag shape, distress edges, ( you can use your finger nails for this) sew down the folded edge leaving room for the pin, place pin inside flag and stick into the mounting tape behind the rose.
  13. Add title and journaling if desired.

Thanks and have fun scrapping, Gilly oxo
