Life’s Short | Kirei Baldwin

Hi everyone, Kirei here with a new layout featuring one of the fab CUT to YOU March releases! I’ve gone a little fruity and am using two of the new fruit cut files for my shares this month, the first one is the ‘Lemons’ cut file…

Now I have to confess that this didn’t end up how I planned it… as it was initially going to have a giant shaker for the centre lemon slice! So… what happened? Well I backed the two outer lemons with patterned paper raised on foam pads and when it came to doing the middle one I realised that I had forgotten to back it first with some vellum! Oops…. so then looked to see if I could recover it but decided I was likely to end up ripping some of the cut file so onto plan B!

I wanted to back the centre with the same patterned paper as I had used for the layout frame but it was a little too bold so backed it with vellum first and then the paper and it was perfect! Remember there are no mistakes in scrapbooking, only opportunities!

I added my photo to the top left of the layout mounted with lots of layers of matching papers and some tags. Then added some of the ephemera to either side of the photo.

I added a few fussy cut lemons and some of the ephemera down to the bottom right just to balance the photo cluster in the top left.

I searched online for an appropriate lemony title and thought this one was perfect to go with my photo of us out and about at an event near to us…. ‘Life’s short, live it with zest!’
