A Layout with Betsy's Couture

Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you a layout Ive completed using Betsy's Couture :)  I loved this range, its right up my alley with its heritage theme and my favourite colour, BLUE!  My DT kit also made me think outside the square, wondering how I could incorporate my 6x6 pad into a layout instead of taking the easy way out and doing some more cards ;)

This photo is my Great Grandma's sister, Grace.  That would make her my Great Aunt :)  Isn't she beautiful?!

Ive taken four matching pieces from the paper pad and placed them in grid formation.  To create the rest of the base of the layout, Ive matted the grid piece onto cardstock and layered that onto my punched border strips, and then onto my base piece of 12 x 12 paper.

On the left side Ive arranged a selection of strips from die cuts and a few of the collectables.  On the opposite corner Ive arranged my cluster using a selection of blooms from my stash and my kit.  The chipboard is Dusty Attic that I have gessoed and then randomly stamped with a script stamp and black ink, and then inked the edges with pinecone.

Thanks for popping by, I hope Ive made you take another look at those paper pads ;) See you next time!


  1. A lovely layout. The colours in this collection so suit your beautiful heritage photo.

  2. This is a beautiful layout, and Judy's comment above says it all. Your Greatgrandmother's sister is actually your g.g.aunt. Hope you don't mind me telling you this.
