Finally some layouts!

I must admit that I did these a week or so ago, but have only just got around to photographing and uploading them.
The first three are made using Pink Paislee patterned paper, al from the Fetching range which I absolutely love, the cardstock is Bazzill and DCWV. I've made use of my Fiskars circle punch and X Cut heart punch to make embellshments for two of the pages, and my Fiskars Threading Water border punch which I've been wanting for ages. I really must get some more border punches! I even used some Banana Frog alpha stamps that I've had and not used. You are also likely to see more eyelets on my pages now as I also invested in a Cropodile.

Mostly Different
3 Wishes

This layout is about the things I love about my husband Paul, I've used the heart punch again on this one and my lovely Cropodile. The patterened paper is one i've had for years, possibly since I started scrapbooking, you know how everyone goes through the phase of buying any paper they see, well this was one of those. It says "Attitude" on it which I've hidden behind the photos which was not appropriate for what I wanted but the beige was a perfect match for the curtains behind Paul. I think the blue and orange really gives the page some punch. I wasn't sure what to do with these photos for quite a while and I hate having photos languishing in the drawer if I can find a use for them, same with the patterened paper.

Paul U R....

I collect paper that I like (and I have a lot of it believe me) because I believe that eventually I will find the photos for it. I've also started putting my supplies together as kits, mostly just one range of papers together at the moment, but I love the way it showcases my favourite papers. I'm tempted to buy some more to frame and hang them in rows, that would be lush (sadly I can't because we live with Paul's mum) and then I would probably design the rooms colour scheme around it. I think I'd run out of rooms though : D

PS: I forgot to post on wednesday but I lost another pound in weight last week.

  1. Well done with the weight... keep it up and you'll be a supermodel in no time (well actually, I'm not sure that's very encouraging - I would hate to be a supermodel...but you know what I mean!)

    I have quite a lot of nice papers too. Since Shimelle's "Something from Almost Nothing" course, I haven't bought many supplies at all and I'm doing my best to use what I have. Not that I've done much scrapping lately, but I did use a few sheets to make some fab notebooks - which got me a big order in my shop - yay! That was about 10 or 12 sheets accounted for, and I still have the spare pieces for scrapping!!
