Retreat Paper Reveal - My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing

This is another paper line to be introduced at the retreat tomorrow. We already put out two of this line's collections: Tangerine and Bluebell.  This time, we will put out Lavender and Honey. I chose the Lavender line to work with, while my friend Angela worked with the Honey line. I hope I can get some pictures of her layouts to post here later.

The lavender line has a lot of soft pastels, especially pinks and yellows. I also either desaturated or whitewashed my photos to suit the colour palette.

It's In Her Smile
This layout will also be my submission for a sketch challenge with My Creative Scrapbook, so it may turn up again in a separate post as part of the competition requirements.
This pretty pink canvas flower adds the 3D element to the page.
I added machine stitching to most of the paper. I really adds an extra visual effect to the layout. 

Extra elements: flower by Prima, large SMILE letters by Thickers

There Is No One in the World Just Like You
I based this on a layout I saw in a magazine but cannot remember which one now. I kept it simple with small elements dotted around the page.
Little elements keep the page whimsical and floaty.
Balance out the page with a smaller accent corner.
The title is a mixture of die cut letters, stickers and chipboard.

Extra Elements: pink/orange butterfly by Kaisercraft, Wood effect chipboard letters by Thickers

Beautiful Family
 I made this layout for an eClips introduction class that I did last Tuesday evening.
 The lace and title frames are all cut by the eClips.
A little pop of yellow stops this layout from being to monotone.

Extra Elements: Lily, butterfly and black flourish by Kaisercraft, cardstock by Bazzill
