'Cake Please' Layout by Linda

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Linda has created a beautiful layout to share today.
I hope it gets those crafty juices flowing for you too!


1.    Cut a strip of Prairie Chic Laundry PP 15.5cm wide and mark the mid-point on it.
2.    Mark the mid-point on the Prima Lattice Stencil and line up this point with that on the PP and completely cover stencil with a thick layer of Texture Paste.
3.    Gently lift up the stencil and realign it on the bottom of the paper and again completely cover with a thick layer of Texture Paste.
4.    Put this piece aside to dry for a good few hours – speed it up a little with a heat gun if you wish.
5.    Prepare the other parts of the layout – cut two 30cm x .5cm strips of Prairie Chic Garden paper (from the dark brown sections) and add a scalloped pink border punched from the Prairie Chic Wanderlust PP to each of these.
6.    Cut two 2cm x 30cm pieces of Prairie Chic Rambling Rose paper and punch with the MS Doily Lace punch. Adhere the brown/pink scalloped pieces to these two strips.
7.    Fussy cut the title shape from the Prairie Chic Stonewashed Denim paper and arrange your title on it using the alphabet stickers that come with this collection.
8.    Fussy cut the 3 stitched banners from the Prairie Chic Flea Market Finds paper and adhere them beneath the title piece.
9.    Cut the journaling card from the Prairie Chic Flea Market Finds paper and computer generate your journaling and print onto this piece.
10.    When Texture Paste piece is dry adhere it down the centre of Prairie Chic Wanderlust PP.
11.    Adhere the Doily Lace punched strips down each side of the textured piece.
12.    Mat your photo on the pink section on the reverse side of Wanderlust and distress the edges of the mat.
13.    Mount photo piece on chipboard and adhere 5cm down from the top of the layout with a piece of white lace beneath it.
14.    Mount your journaling card on chipboard and slip it under the left side of the photo.
15.    Mount title piece to chipboard and adhere in the top right of the photo.
16.    Accent the title piece with Prima Flowers and pearls from your stash.
17.    Add a cluster of flowers, including the two Bella Blvd Crochet flowers to the top of the journaling card therefore covering the bird if it’s sideways as it was for my orientation.
18.    Add a Prima Resin Photo Corner and small pearl clusters to complete your layout.
