A LO using Fabric?

Hey ho everyone. I have been a busy girl, working away on some classes and some DT layouts, but still found time to sneak a LO in just for me. I have had a bee in my bonnet about doing a LO using fabric ever since I picked up a beautiful fabric flower embellie from my local scrap store Scrapbooks From The Heart. Ta dah! Here is what I created!

These are the out-takes of the photos I tried to get my naughty girls to pose for on Mother's Day this year...trying for a wistful feel and all they gave me was giggles.

The little dragonfly is one of  my polymer clay creations...You like?

The key charm and circle pendant charm are both from Tracy's My 2 Angels web based store...( linky linky).

The background is green satin and coffee coloured organza, with a little rope of tiny weeny faux pearl wrapped around it. The fuzzy stuff is the leftover threads from the green satin where I have frayed the edges.

The flower that sparked the idea of the page, from Scrapbooks from the Heart.. (clicky here)...isn't it sooo yummy? 

Hope you all liked this LO as much as I do...and I have some sneaky peeks at my card and kids classes for this month coming up soooooon. x


  1. Just magnificent the flow & floating of your LO I adore that does it stay put though???

    Glorious piccies as well. Love it.You have inspired me. xxx

  2. HI Debi! This LO is deceptive. The material is actually strips approx 3 inches wide, draped around the outside of the cardstock, with the centre of the LO fabric free. I ran a quick machine tack stitch just through the centre of the fabric to keep it in place. The photos are layered so you can't see the edge of the fabric underneath and they are stuck onto the cardstock not fabric so they won't budge. The green floating threads are stuck onto tacky glue.

  3. Wow Corrina...thank you for the tutorial...fabric shop, here I come!! I really think this LO is so very beautiful. It will be fun to have a whirl, even if I dont succeed. Wonderful!

  4. Wow I am impressed!! Not just with this GORGEOUS LO but with how you did it!! I too was wondering how the photos were stuck down!?! I'm looking forward to checking this out on Friday!! Just LOVE your little dragonfly and that flower looks so familiar LOL!!! Wonder if she has any left? Definitely a beautiful LO!! W xx

  5. OMG this is stunning, like Deb love the floating of it and the frayed edges are so pretty
    Staples are another good thing for sticking down fabric and tuelle - that's what I use cause I am too lazy to get the machine out LOL

  6. Oh Corinna this is just amazing, I am so glad I got to see it before one of the magazines snap it up for publication, this is just so romantic and with the pics of your gorgeous girls is just perfect. Wow Wow clever lady. Melxx

  7. Gosh it is totally dreamy, Corrina. Love everything about it, especially the colour. Beautiful!
