However I do have oodles of photos from a trip to Madeira that my husband and I took in early November and the Firework kit is just perfect. In the shop blurb Leo described it as "full of bright zingy colours with a sherbet twist" which is just what I need to showcase a holiday full of warm summer sun.
So here we go....
This first layout makes me smile so much. We were very lucky to leave the Uk that morning as most airports were fogbound. By lunchtime we were on the hotel balcony - and look at me with no cardi on (extremely rare in the UK).
I thought the fabulous colours of the kit would help me to celebrate this great memory.
To start with I laid down a wash of turquoise glimmer glaze. When that was dry I added gesso with a mask. When that was dry, I sprinkled yellow and blue mists
I added layers of the Fancy Pants Happy Place, Maggie Holmes Shine - Twinkle and Cheer together and then snipped a few of the KaiserCraft sticker phrases. You may note that one of the papers was also given the gesso/mask treatment.
I used one of the Kaisercraft blocks for my title and added to it a Fancy Pants Happy Place Words & Shapes Puffy Sticker. The photos were mounted on foam pads
My second layout is more graphic in style
Maggie Holmes Shine - Memento paper would be perfect. It was mostly that along with a photo mat made from the Twinkle paper.
I knew I would be using the fantastic Crate Paper Hello Love gold/white Thickers and wanting to inject another spot of gold into the layout so took my Tim Holtz ruler to make nice neat holes and some gold thread to create a gold line. I sewed the paper before sticking it to the cardstock which made it easier going.
As well as puffy stickers and asterisks from the kit I did add in a few sequins just for a tad more gold.
