Juliet - BoBunny DT

Winter is nearly over thank heavens and we've had some gorgeous sunny days lately, hopefully there will be lots of those lovely days over the summer.  But at least the winter weather is great for staying inside and scrapping away to my hearts content! and doesn't make me feel guilty for not being outside in the garden :)

Today I wanted to share one of my favourite photos of our pooches, with one of my favourite paper collections.  Juliet!  I just love this paper range, its a fussy cutter and flower obsessed scrappers heaven ;) Its perfect for me!

When I do any layouts or cards, I tend to steer away from the stripes - besides using them for strips or that faux ribbon look I don't really utilise them.  So I set myself a challenge to use them and rummaged around in Pinterest looking for ideas and thats how this layout came about.  Well I did have this photo that my BFF took awhile ago as she was leaving our place, that Ive been dying to scrap for awhile as well.  Don't they look so cute with their heads popping out through the doorway?  :)  I also wanted to utilise my Silhouette more so I had ended up with a set criteria I wanted to include.  I think I achieved that.

I took Milan and Full House from the Juliet collection and cut them in half, then joined them together with washi tape. I created my background using the Brocade stickable stencil, random stamping and spraying with Bronze and Gold.   The flourish and heart are cut using the Silhouette from Chocolate Double Dot.  I then used my favourite stamp - Stitches - around the edges, mixing it up with straight stitching and zigzag.

Im really pleased with it, hope you like :)  If you want to see it in the flesh its up on display in The Paper Teapot :)
