Swim Layout by Niki

Hi, lovelies! Niki back again with another layout using the August Embellishment kit and the All About Love Journal Cards. This is the fourth layout I have made with this kit and I didn’t have much leftover!  I arranged the remaining acetate doilies onto my layout into a circle shape. The colours I had left were the pink and orange tones and white ones, so this immediately gave the layout a summery feel.

I added a large die-cut doily on top of my acetate doilies and stuck everything in place. My plan was to then add some machine stitching to some areas of the large die-cut doily but as I had overlapped my acetate doilies, together with two cardstock layers and the die cut, the layout was a bit thick and I broke two needles on my sewing machine! So my sewing machine is now out of action until replacement needles arrive and therefore there isn’t quite as much machine stitching as I had originally intended!

I added my photo on a stack together with some of the journaling cards. One of the cards I had cut the design from the middle but kept the edge so I covered this one in the Rose Gold Foiled Woodgrain Washi Tape and used it as one of the layers within my photo stack. Once my photo was in place, I added the pretty yellow doily flair badge, a Rose Gold To Do paper clip and some of the clear wanderlust quote stickers. I finished off by adding the remaining epoxy shapes and a fussy cut arrow and ‘love’ from one of the journaling cards.

Finally I handwrote in the word ‘swim’ in every loop of the doily and added some splatters of gold Color Shine spray.

I have made a process video of this layout which you can watch below:

I have definitely used the August Kit and Journal Cards to their full potential as I have nothing left other than one paperclip and the washi tape! I hope you’ve enjoyed my layouts and videos this month and I can’t wait for the next kit to arrive on my door mat!

Happy scrapping!
