Hi Everyone! And welcome to a new week of blogging featuring “Velvet Ensemble” and “Pink Gelato”.
This week Vicki, Lady Grace and Leanne are working together to bring you fun and fresh ideas. Today is all about our little crush on Velvet Ensemble…
Leanne says “This collection is perfect for all of those photos (and we know you have them!) of your miniature stars on stage. Think of all those school plays and pageants you can now scrap!!!
My daughter has been studying ballet for quite some time now, and every now and then, I get the opportunity to sneak into her lesson and take photos. I love these open days and I am so glad I have scrapped about my daughter’s passion.
“Ballerina in Training” by Leanne Allinson: The Velvet Ensemble – performance (p675), 6.5″ paper pad (pp844); journal tags (jt620); sticker sheet (ss103); grosgrain ribbon – lovely (ri605); paper flowers – burgundy (f611); ink – sepia (ip709), black (ip707); rhinestones – black (sb777); mini alphas – black and white (ma501). Other – tulle, black pen, machine stitching, star punch, foam tape.
The paper flower has been created from the 6.5″ paper pad and reminds me of a ballerina’s tutu. I have even managed to sneak some tulle onto my layout as well!”
Vicki says the “Velvet Ensemble” range is truly timeless and so elegant it can fit so many occasions.
It is just perfect for those treasured moments like this one I found in my stash. I am always behind the camera so to find this photo in my collection was like striking gold!
I have used the “costume” paper as the base for this layout of my little girl and I.
The colours of the range were just perfect for the black and white photo and complemented well with a lace doily, paper flowers and pearls.”

LG says “the color combination, texture and patterns of this collection is amazing. You can use black and white photos, colored or sepia. Here I scrapped a photo of my niece while she was playing.
The scallop circle illusion was created by doing a masking technique with a chalk.
