Limited Edition Kit - MCS

Here are some projects I finished using the Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. This kit was from July. It was chock full of Graphic 45 Fashionista paper and Prima goodies everywhere. The more I play with Graphic 45 papers, the more I really like them. Enjoy the projects below.

These are 2 of my best buds and frankly I think this paper line was made just for them. If you like using your papers as die cuts, you will enjoy Graphic 45. They have a lot of full page, big designs that allow you to pick and choose what you like, such as my 11" lady in red and the grouping of ladies in the bottom left.

You don't need too many extra embellishments with this paper as it works to create dimension for you.

And the second project. This is my husband and I on our wedding day. Our photographer decided to switch to black/white film for our departure and I'm so glad he did. We got these great vintage looking "old school Hollywood" type photos (hence the film reel).

I paper pieced the curtains at the top of the page. The key to realistic paper piecings is layers and lots of shading. Each swag is 3-4 pieces. I off-centered the design on the paper, in each swag piece, to give movement in the curtains.

Since I love multi-photo pages, if I can, I'll try to find little ways to add more photos. Below, I made little charm photos of other parts of our wedding day and added them into the film reel. The film reel is pieced and inked with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) and finished off with Perfect Pearls (Pewter and Antique Gold).

I still have so much left in this kit, that I can probably get 2-3 more layouts from it. Time on the other hand, is something I can't seem to get more of...
