Hug Me










Here's my first project using Queenscraps October Kit which features Kaisercraft's Cocco line of pattern papers. The photograph is taken from the top angle when Chloe is asking me to hug and carry her up. This is a very simple layout to showcase the beautiful pattern papers in that kit.
Here are the steps.
1) Use the "Stonewash" Bazzill card stock as the back ground of the page. Ink the edges using weathered wood distress ink.
2) From the left, first cut out a rectangle piece from the reverse side of the "Mocha" pattern paper. Distress the edges using the scissors distressing technique and ink the edges using black soot distress ink. Paste it on the upper left of the page.
3) Cut out a square piece from the "Periwinkle" pattern paper and distress it using the scissors distressing technique. Ink it with weathered wood distress ink. Paste it with a gab under the rectangle piece.
4) Cut out a rectangle piece from the reverse side of the "All Spice" pattern paper and repeat the distressing technique. Ink it with weathered wood distress ink. Paste it with a gab under the square piece.
5) Cut out a square piece from the "Mocha" pattern paper and repeat the distressing technique. Ink it with black soot distress ink. Paste it with a larger gab under the rectangle piece.
6) Distress your photograph with the scissor distressing technique and ink the edges using black soot distress ink. I've cut a small square out from the upper right of the photograph and ink the cut out edges with black soot distress ink. Paste the photograph in the middle of the page.
7) Now, moving on to the right side, first cut out a square piece from the "Mocha" pattern paper and distress it using the scissors distressing technique. Ink the edges with black soot distress ink.
8) Cut out a square piece from the reverse side of the "Mocha" pattern paper and repeat the distressing technique. Ink it with black soot distress ink. Paste it with a gab under the square piece.
9) Cut out another square piece from "All Spice" pattern paper and repeat the distressing technique. Ink it with weathered wood distress ink and paste it with a gab under the square piece above.
10) I've cut out a strip from the "Cashmere" Bazzill card stock and punch some holes in the middle of it. I've inked the edges using black soot distress ink and paste it horizontally at the bottom of the page.
11) Now moving onto the fun part. Create a huge circle masking template from any scraps and mask a huge circle in the middle of the page using weathered wood distress ink. Then, use the "Net Stitching" technique to stitch around the circle.
12) Cut out a strip of the Queen and Co. felt scroll which is included in the kit and paste it on top of the strip of pattern paper on the left. Add some small Kaisercraft Self Adhesive Pearls (Denim) (included in the kit) on part of the felt scroll to add some details to it. This strip will give the page a grounded look.
13) Use the journaling stamp included in the kit, to stamp on the "Periwinkle" pattern paper using a black solvent ink and cut it out using a decorative scissors. Ink the edges using black soot and paste it on the lower right of the page.
14) Ink the edges of the Kaisercraft Wooden Curl (included in the kit) with black soot distress ink and paste it on the upper right of the photograph.
15) Use a large and a small Heidi Swapp Felt Flowers (Brown) included in the kit to embellish around the wooden curl. Cut out a small and medium circle from the "Mocha" pattern paper to layer in the middle of the flower using some foam adhesives. Add a Kaisercraft Self Adhesive Pearls in the center of each circle.
16) Lastly, just use the Kaisercraft Alpha Rub-ons to add your title at the bottom of the page.
This is a very simple page that I think everyone would enjoy creating. Have fun!
