Apologies for being so late writing this post. I’ve had a very busy week!
I had a nice time at the Scrap Cafe Crop in Reading last weekend. I sat next to a really lovely lady called Lynne and we got on quite well. I wasn’t as productive as I could have been (only three layouts!) but I am very happy with the result of all three of them.
Savo(u)r the small things
For this layout I used a very large card with the title. The card was from a “project-life-style” collection, although I can’t remember which. I bought it at the crop shop and threw the packaging straight away, so can’t remember the name. I decided to delineate the outside of the words to give it a bit more interest and I really like how it turned out.
The rest of the backing papers are from Simple Stories “Sunshine and Happiness”, and the embellishments are from one of Lottie Loves Papers kits, but I forget which one.
(I’m just realising that it is going to be very difficult for me to come up with a list of products used in my layouts as more often than not I just throw everything into my stash and forget about collections or manufacturers)
For this layout I used a sheet of paper from the Fancy Pants Millie & June. I fussy cut the hearts that I like the most and used them to border my photo. I used other papers from the same collection for matting the photo.
Rain Rain go away
This layout has been praised quite a lot on Facebook on the last few days. I really like it, the embellishments really work well, however it is not my most favourite layout so far.
The embellishments are mainly from the Echo Park collection “Sunny days ahead”, although there are a couple of Shimelle’s stickers and also a few Sn@p ones.
My next crop is on the 8th of next month, Hursley again. And the week after that is the retreat in Bracknell! I am so excited about the retreat, I can tell you!
