Tell a story

Hi! Lately I’ve been thinking about my layouts and why I’m doing them. I love photos and I love scrapbooking products. But I also want my layouts to be about stories! So how do I tell my stories? All the layouts in this blog post are a mix between Maggie Holmes – Chasing Dreams, Shimelle – […]

On A Whim by Amy Tangerine

Hi Jackie here with my layouts for this month.  And like the title of the collection says, I decided to pick this ‘On A Whim’ – ha! ha!.  It was definitely one that I overlooked and again another one that I’m glad I picked it. The collection is very random and bright, it as cameras, […]

Lovely Day by Dear Lizzy

It doesn’t disappoint. Although I do feel I need a trip to France to do some of the embellishments justice! I have three layouts […]

Oasis…

Of all the latest collections launched at CHA 2017, a firm favourite of mine has to be Oasis by Crate Paper! Whether I’m drawn to it by the stunning green tones of aqua and teal, complemented by the rich raspberry pink and subtle coral colours, or whether its simply a case of “You had me at […]

Saturday, Bloom and Gather revisited

Hurrah, lots of new collections have arrived in store yesterday! This of course meant they weren’t in when I was making my monthly projects, so I revisited three of my favourite collections; Maggie Holmes’ Bloom and Gather and Dear Lizzy’s Saturday. Yes, there are still products from these stunning collections in the store and they […]

Round & round with Illustrated Faith!

Hey Magpies, welcome to February! This month I am using Illustrated Faith again, mainly the You Are Loved collection. I decided to focus on circles this month, to try and snap me out of my grid obsession and it worked! I felt my grid LO’s were getting very samey and boring but a grid is my go-to […]
