Two June Projects from Niki

Hello everyone, Niki here today to share two layouts made with the June embellishment kit.

This layout was completely inspired by the sticky half-pearls. I loved how they appeared on the backing sheet, in blocks of turquoise-green, white and silver so set about making my layout reflect this.

I cut a dotty cut file from a sheet of white card. I then took a second piece of white card and painted it in blocks using metallic paint. I used turquoise-green, white and silver paints to match the pearls. Once dry I stuck the dotty cut file over the top of the painted background so the blocks of colour shone through the holes. I used foam pads to raise the top layer so there was some depth to my layout. I then added all the sticky pearls from the sheet through the holes onto their corresponding colour. There wasn’t enough pearls to add one to every hole but the effect looks great.

Once my background was ready I could then add my photo and my embellishments. I picked out all green, blue and white tones from the embellishment kit and began adding them to my page. I kept the photo and most of the embellishments in a block to mimic the rest of the layout. I love that big blue bow and the acrylic title went brilliantly with my photo. I used the washi strips, arrows and circles, as well as the enamel hearts and chipboard words.

I finished off my layout by adding a few tone on tone embellishments to the rest of the layout with some stitching detail and added a journaling border around the edge of the layout. I loved how this one turned out as it’s a bit different from my usual style and the block colours look great!


For this layout I cut a circle cut file out of pink patterned paper. I stuck this onto a white cardstock background and then mounted that on a busy colourful chevron print. The circle cut file has been raised on foam pads to give the layout dimension and also to provide places to tuck things under.

The circle cut file had some clouds on it and I built on that by fussy-cutting some more clouds out of another patterned paper. I layered these on the three areas together with a large ampersand sign from the acetate numbers set, and also added my photo.

With the base of my layout complete I could then start embellishing. I loved the three colours of the enamel hearts in this month’s embellishment kit so choose to highlight those on this layout.

I added a few chipboard circles from last month’s embellishment kit that were the right colours and then began adding the enamel hearts. I also added some washi arrows and a circle. I finished off by doodling some hearts and cutting some tiny hearts out of one of the washi strips and finally I added a few splatters of yellow water colour paint.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my layouts, happy scrapping!
