More from the Glitz Scarlett kit.....

I made this layout a couple of weeks ago now....
it was actually made with some scrapping buddies on the island of Aegina
I have used the Glitz Scarlett kit from

The red frill around the layout was made with the Martha Stewart Doilie punch,
I punched out doilie strips from the vanilla cardstock in the kit 
then I sprayed the strips with  Candy Apple red Glimmer Mist (again from the kit)
once the strips dried I pleated them and placed them around the layout!

This picture has such bitter sweet memories
apart from the fact DH and I are very young (I was 28) LOL
we were also celebrating the marriage of a dear friend of ours 
and a year later to the day she died from breast cancer
she was only 28!


  1. Oh Irini that is so sad ! So young. Fab layout and the photo could have been taken yesterday. Must have taken ages to do that border it's fab ! love the green and the red and all those lovely flowers simply beautiful. I hope you are feeling a bit ( well a lot better )


  2. Tragic loss!:(

    You never stop to amaze me with your creative LOs!
    Another fantastic one!!!

  3. Irini, this is so tragic... I can't imagine how her husband coped with this loss...

    Anyway, your layout is beautiful, wonderful, exquisite!!

  4. so very sad indeed .. when someone "young" dies it always makes a huge impact on the people around them ... such a difficult journey for those left.

    the LO is gorgeous Irini.... I feel it is always good to scrap the tough times as well as the good times .. scrapping is about ALL of life and as hard as it is it can be healing for you ..big hugz and take care .. sweetness x

  5. Ειρήνη μου τραγική απώλεια.... το να χάνετε έτσι ένας τόσο νέος άνθρωπος... :(

    όσο για τη σύνθεση...και οι δύο σας είστε νεότατοι και γλυκίτατοι!!!! τα χρώματα είναι απίστευτα ταιριαστά....

  6. Πραγματικά είναι απο τις περιπτώσεις που κανείς χάνει τα λόγια του. Τι να πω για μια τόσο αιφνίδια απώλεια; Θαυμάζω τον τρόπο που οι συνθέσεις σου δείχνουν τα συναισθήματά σου... Πραγματικά έχει μια απροσδιόριστη γλύκα και πίκρα αυτή η σύνθεση. Την έφτιαξες υπέροχα Ειρήνη μου. Μου αρέσει πολύ το κεντρικό κόψιμο σαν label και ο τρόπος που τοποθέτησες την μπορντούρα. Σ' ευχαριστούμε. Πολλά φιλιά και να προσέχεις!

  7. Καλημέρα και καλή εβδομάδα Ειρήνη μου! Περάσαμε τέλεια στην Αίγινα κι εγώ που σε έβλεπα να δημιουργείς αυτήν την σύνθεση, σε θαύμαζα πραγματικά! Πρόσθεσες κι άλλες λεπτομέρειες, που μου αρέσουν πάρα πολύ! Φιλάκια, να προσέχεις τον εαυτό σου και καλό καλοκαιράκι!

  8. Irini I have mixed emotions about your the beginning I was so thrilled by the awesome technique you did and the great use of glimmer mist...and then I was so sad to hear the story...a real tragedy...
    Hugs your way!

  9. Irini loved the way your L.O turned out..I too watched it develop in Aegina....your story is tragic and so sad....that is why we should always try and live each moment in life to the fullest of our ability....keep well,miss you!

  10. Είναι τόσο θλιβερό αυτό που συνέβη.....
    Η σύνθεση σου όμως είναι καταπληκτική,πολύ αριστοκρατική!!!!

  11. Wowwwwwwwwwww! This is GORGEOUS! I loveeeeeeeeee that masking and loveeeeeee the paper folded around the die cut shape!! you are AMAZING! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

  12. Irini, by scrapping this page you keep the memory of your friend alive in you heart and thru this post ... it may be bittersweet but that is in fact the truest benefit of scrapbooking ... preserving the memories!!!

    The layout is fab, and I loved watching you create it!!!

  13. Wow! Irini this is gorgeous! Love how you made the red trim. It looks like it was bought. I'm going to have to remember this. Spraying it red is perfect for this lo. The rest of the misting looks fab as well and that pic is awesome of the two of you!

  14. WOW gorgeous page Irini, the colours are so eye-catching.. just love Glitz papers and adore the pleated border and masking!! How sad about your dear friend.. 28 is so young. Big hugs :)))

  15. Τι τραγωδια..... Ειναι πολύ άδικη η ζωη μερικες φορες...
    Μου αρεσει πολύ η συνθεση σου και ιδιαιτερα η αντιθεση των χρωματων...! Φοβερη!

  16. Ειρήνη, η σύνθεσή σου, που την είδα να την φτιάχνεις απ' την αρχή στην Αίγινα .... είναι πανέμορφη! Μονο που η ιστορία που την συνοδεύει ειναι τοσο θλιβερή....
