Hi everyone, I hope you had a good Easter and have recovered from eating too much chocolate, I also hope that you have found time to have some scrapping time too. I have now banished (eaten) all the chocolate eggs and and have a scrap desk full of beautiful spring themed stash.
This month I have been playing with the Jen Hadfield Patio Party collection, for those of you that have followed my posts on here, you will know that I really enjoy Jen Hadfield’s collections and they normally make their way in to my stash. I am currently working on my 8×8 album of the day I spent at the Eden project last year, an this collection works perfectly with all floral and foliage photos I took.
My first layout uses white cardstock for my background, with some water colour on the background. In this album I am trying to embrace the use of white cardstock which is out of my comfort zone.
I used a piece of foiled hexagon paper which echos the shapes of the domes at the Eden project, I then added 3 3×4 photos in a stack along the bottom. The embellishments are all beautifully bright and work great on these pages. The dimension stickers include a acetate layer which adds some interest to the page.
I have included a bug from the Maggie Holmes Charming paper from the Flourish collection, I am using this across the pages in my album, so you will see them cropping up on a number of my pages.
My second page is using another piece of this hexagon paper as my background. The benefit of working 8×8 means I can spread my stash easier across my pages.
This page is just focused on some of the different photos I took in one of the domes. I have layered the stickers and dimensional stickers to create some bright clusters among my photos. I also added some puffy hearts from my stash.
My third page I am sharing with you, used another piece of foiled paper from the paper pack, I have added some water colour to the background to add interest.
I have included one of the journalling cards from the cut apart paper for me to add my journalling on later about the day. This collection also includes some recipe cards printed as part of the design, so would be great for capturing your favourite summer recipes.
My finial page I am sharing with you today, has a different colour tone to it, Jen Hadfield always includes a good mixture of colour in her paper design, and I really like mixing the brown and pink with the turquoise for something different.
I added water colour to the background and the created my layers on top. I did fussy cut a lot of little flowers from that background paper, its a great way to spread the embellishment in a collection pack.
I have really enjoyed making these pages for my album and the bright and cheerful spring papers have really helped my mojo for getting this album completed.
