      Hi ladies,  I’m happy to share the May kit, Spring Chic,  anatomy of a layout with you! I used only the main kit for this layout and some of my supplies.

      Papers and embellishments from the main kit:
      Patterned paper:  Kaisercraft
      Oh So Lovely:  Base and green scraps -Woman,
      cutaparts – Lass, pink lacey strips – Miss, pink photo mat – Ladylike
      Chipboard: Creative Embellishments miniframes
      Flowers: Prima Valentina Gemma, handmade,;
      Other:AmericanCrafts Zazz glitter glue

      Tools and supplies from my stash:

      Embossing powder:  Stampendous aged green
      Diecuts and punches: McGill Floriano and Retro Flower to make flowers
      Shimmerz Spritz Olive Branch
      TCW mini tiles, Prima Doily 3
      Masking paste: Shimmerz Texturez Sandy Stone, 13 Arts Ayeeda paste

      Step 1:

      Tear strips about 3/4″ wide from both sides of the paper, Woman, as shown.  Keep the strips that you tear off for use later.
        
      <br />
      Step 2:
      Do you remember how we used water and a paintbrush to outline our shape and then tear it out?  Use this technique to tear out the lace on the pink strip below. You can see how to do that technique here in step 1 in this tutorial.  Save the other pink side to use.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 3:  Cut a piece of the white corrugated paper slightly larger than the two torn strips.  Adhere the torn strips to the white corrugated strips. 

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 4:
      Using a piece of scrap 12 x 12 paper, adhere the two strips to the outside of the paper as shown in the photo below.  Doesn’t matter how ugly the paper is, LOL, it’s not going to show!

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 5:
      Cut a piece of cardboard (you kit shipping box works perfectly for this) to fit between the two strips.  This will keep everything nice and level.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 6:
      Now adhere the Woman paper from step 1 in the center slightly overlapping the two strips.  Ink and distress as desired.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 7:
      I did some masking with two different masks and white masking paste under where the photo will go.  Oops most of this gets covered up so you can leave this out or adjust the placement of the masking.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 8:
      Mat your photo with pink cardstock or with the paper Ladylike.  Then cut out the two cut-aparts shown below, ink and distress.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 9:
      Take the green strips that you tore off in step one and glue to the layout as shown below.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 10:
      Spray on a little green mist around the bottom as shown.  Then add the two cut-aparts as shown.

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 11:  
      Take two of the Creative Embellishments frames and cut apart as shown.  Heat emboss or paint.  I used Stampendous aged green embossing enamel.

      <br />

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 12:
      I wasn’t happy with my masking (since I covered most of it) so I used TCW’s mini tiles and added more masking.
      <br />

      <br />

      <br />
      Step 13:
      Next, pop up the photo with foam or cardboard and glue to the layout.  
      <br />
      <br />
      <br />
      Step 14:
      Now it’s time to add embellishments.  I made the two large pink flowers using Floriano and Retro Flower punches.  I also made a few rolled roses that you see on the layout.  Add the green Prima flowers from the main kit and tuck in the Creative Embellishments pieces around the flowers.  I dabbled some of the Zazz glitter glue on the flowers for extra sparkle.  That’s it, all done!

        Gorgeous my dear! And the tutorial is perfect! (Love what you did with the frames – I never would have thought of that.)

        A clean house is the sign of a lazy scrapper.
