Fairy Belle Layouts

I have two layouts to show you today, made with Prima Fairy Belle. The collection was sent to me by the lovely Sarah at SJ Crafts, and it's in stock HERE if you'd like to get hold of some!

The first layout is one of my favourites lately, and it was partly scraplifted from this layout by Stacey Cohen, which I talked about wanting to scraplift in this post. I had to create something cute and lovely to match the sweet photo of my two kids touching noses:

Supplies= Bazzill Basics Cardstock; Prima Fairy Belle 6x6 Papers, Alphas, and Flowers; Sassafrass and American Crafts Alphas; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type 'Typewriter' Stickers; Papermania Brads; My Mind's Eye Twine; Slice Design Cutter with Basic Elements and Noteworthy Design Cards; White Acrylic Paint; Brown Thread; Black Gel Pen; Brown Ink Pad; 3D Foam Dots and Tape.

I scraped some white paint (using an old credit card) over the light blue background to create a dreamy feel, which I really like for this page.

The Cosmo Cricket Typewriter words add nice sentiment details:

I had fun cutting the tags using my Slice, and I mounted them on the layout with 3D foam tape to give a bit of dimension:

I was pleased that the page doesn't look too girly - despite the collection being called 'Fairy Belle', it has worked quite well to make a layout that suits my little boy and my little girl.

But then, of course, I wanted to make a super girly page with the collection for my daughter:

Supplies= Bazzill Basics Cardstock; Prima Fairy Belle 6x6 Papers, Alphas, Chipboards, and Flowers; White Acrylic Paint; White and Black Gel Pens; Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Typewriter Stickers; Slice Design Cutter and Noteworthy Design Card; a Pearl, and a Gem; 3D Foam Tape. 

My friend bought this ballet outfit for my daughter, and she loves dancing around in it. As soon as I saw the pretty chipboards in the Fairy Belle collection, I knew I wanted to showcase lots of them together on one page. I've seen some brilliant picture gallery style projects online lately, like this layout or this wall art, so I tried to replicate that feel.

I used an old credit card again to apply the paint, this time just using the longer edge of the card to keep the line thin, but I also let it get a bit 'messy' looking, to stop the page looking too sharp. 

I also added a small photo of the ballet slippers to a circular detail on one of the chipboard pieces:

And again I used the Cosmo Cricket Typewriter stickers to add a little sentiment:

I made a card with the collection too, which you can see, along with a couple of different detail shots of these layouts, on the SJ Crafts blog here

I love how the collection works well on both blue or pink (and probably many other colours too!). What colour background would you use it on? x
