Don’t be deceived by the name of this collection.  Whilst it is perfect for photos of baby girls and all things feminine, there is a masculine set of papers hidden within it!  The photos above show two of the ways you can group the papers for different looks.

Today I am sharing photos that have nothing to do with babies or little girls.  My photos were taken at King’s College in Cambridge.  The soft pinks and weathered greys of the sandstone work perfectly with a few prints in the Sweet Girl collection. The lighter side of New England Ivy Cardstock for the base creates contrast to the softer tones of photos and papers without overpowering them.



Adding Embellishments

First up, create the frame by trimming the woodgrain paper. Mitre the corner for a realistic look. See how the prints match nicely at the join?

Trim your background papers using a 12" trimmer. Cut the peach photo mounts to fit your images. The foam ABC stickers make a bold heading for your page. If you would like a different colour you can colour with Shin Han markers over them whilst still on the carrier sheet. A narrow strip of woodgrain paper anchors the title and links it to the border.

Use complement stickers and die cuts along with the Stitched Quilt Shape Thin Cuts to embellish your layout. The 2 shapes I used from the thin cut set are designed to emboss another shape but I chose to fussy cut them as stand alone embellishments.
