LIFE CAPTURED | BERNII GROF

Hello there, Bernii here with you today!!

I am here to share my with you all my latest layout that I have created again inspired by the new beginnings that Spring seems to symbolise. Now the photo that I scrapped isn’t a photo that was taken in the Spring months, however it is a photo of my daughter turning double digits and it made me think of the new beginnings she will face. To symbolise this a little more I chose a butterfly cut file to represent her change into the next stage of her life. So let me show you what I have created.

Now this particular background cut file is the Butterfly Cluster Cut n Stitch , although I only used the butterflies cut file and also decided to cut two of the  clusters so that I could have them cover most of the background from left to right.

I love how the butterflies just seem to sit on the page delicately when backed with patterned paper and vellum. I didn’t want to embellish the layout too much as I wanted the butterflies to stand out , and to help the butterflies seem like the wings are fluttering I only added glue to the body .

I then added the ” Life Captured” title and only a smattering of embellishments from the latest CVS collection . Lastly, I just jotted down some thoughts on the moment that I captured.

Happy B’Day | Bernii Grof

Hi there,

Bernii here with you today to share with you a new Travellers Notebook spread in my beloved TN that I picked up from IKEA. I love using this size and and format to memory keep in as the pages come together faster for me and more memories get recorded. So let me show my latest spread in my TN using the TN Speech Bubble cut file.

I love this cut file and originally had the idea that I would use each speech bubble with some journaling of random tidbits from the day. Instead I decided to use it as a layering piece on the left hand side of the spread and teamed it with the new Pink Fresh collection ” Just a little lovely”.

I love the extra layering piece that it gives to the spread and I still managed to get some journaling completed in a few of the bubbles. I decided to decorate over the the two pages and help balance out with the acetate gold foiled ephemera .

CTYTNSpeechBubble

Is this not one of the sweetest TN cut files you have seen?  I decided  not to back the cut file as I normally would as it was just a beautiful and subtle touch.

Beautiful | Bernii Grof

Hi there , Bernii here with you today.

Today I have a new layout share for you for the CUT to YOU design team using the gorgeous ” Lotus Bud Floral cut file” . I challenged myself to use a patterned paper background, and I have to say I love the way it turned out with the soft Lotus Bud floral cut file that just compliments the paper perfectly. 

Let me show you what I have created .

I used the latest Kitaholics Kit which featured Pink Paislee papers with these gorgeous soft water colour effects. To add to the softness of the layout I decided to back the Lotus Bud floral cut file with the soft pink paper.

 Overall, the Lotus Bud cut file did most of the embellishing on the page for me and I love how it turned out. Then the “Beautiful” title was the perfect sentiment to finish the layout.

I just love anything floral and this cut file seemed the perfect fit for this layout featuring my daughter and her friend at an art class together. It reminded me of the flowers that the girls painted in their pictures . I cut two of these cut files out to create the layout as I wanted it to spread out towards the two corners of the layout.

XAllAroundFloral

I used an older collection from Illustrated Faith as it added the right pops of colour that I needed to help make these pictures pop.
