Part Two of Chantilly Kit!

So the second part of Chantilly was really fun and VERY easy! You are to access the CTMH Reflections book item #9037 $14.95 to get exact directions.

The left side is Main Frame-Portrait page 61. Seriously easy page. You use White Daisy as a base, Twillight 8 1/2 x 12 and the patterned paper 1 1/2 x 12! Then you mat your photo! My photo was 6 x 10 so my mat was 6 1/2 x 10 1/2 on Buttercup.  I like that 1/4 inch on all four sides. I used some chocolate colored ribbon by another company to trim off the paper breaks. You will learn I love ribbon and have a TON of it! That was probably an understatement!
The peacock feathers are stamped with the exclusive stamp that comes with the kit. I stamped it in the matching ink color Twilight. Stamping the image in the same color as the paper gives it a watercolor look. I really enjoy that effect. The fabric covered buttons comes with the kit as well. I did add Bitty Sparkles Z2163 $2.95 and comes with 100. I like putting them on with a piercing tool which is part of the piercing tool kit Z114 $5.95. It helps with exact placement. Any piercing pointed tool should work. The stamp "Sweet Moments" was also done in Twilight with stamp C1467 Sweet Moments Flair. It is a beautiful stamp set and have used it a few times now. 
Here is the view of that.
The second page is also from Reflections Page 23 Title Topper-Cover with the same paper cuts. The sun was stamped with Buttercup with the exclusive stamp that came with the kit. I am going to use this stamp set a lot. I can already tell that! I inked the edges with the buttercup as well. The circles were 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 inches in Buttercup cardstock. I inked the larger circle with Buttercup around the edge. The smaller one was stamped with the circle stamp that came with the kit too! I tell you I love this stamp set! The inside was stamped with "every day is a play day" in Pear and also the same stamp set.
I decided to stamp onto the photos in Twilight also from the stamp set. The circle to the right of Alexis (my daughter's best friend) is stamped on White Daisy in Pear. I wrote the year inside. Again the fabric buttons came from the kit and the feather was stamped in Twilight.
I decided to do some hand journaling which I normally do not do. I am not a fan of my handwriting but like to do it every now and then. I just adore my daughter and her best friend Alexis. I hope their friendship continues for many many years!
