Life’s Never Crabby!

Hello lovely ones! I’m jumping onto my blog today to share with you a layout I completed recently using the October Cocoa Daisy Memory Keeping Kit. The photo I took recently on our holiday of my daughter and I wanted to capture something fun when creating my layout.

 The Crab cut file is by Paige Evans . I totally fell in love with it and knew it would be a perfect companion for my photo.

I backed the Crab with two different exclusive papers from the kits, carefully tracing each shape and gluing into place.

The cute clouds were a cut file by Cocoa Daisy. To give them extra texture and dimension I added a simple back stitch by hand using embroidery cotton.

I always love using a title on my layouts so I combined two of the different Alpha stickers to do so.

I was really pleased with the finished result.There was so much joy captured in my photo and I think the layout also reflects that.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you would like to check out Cocoa Daisy you can do so HERE.

Hello Fall in Spring!

Hello my sweet crafting friends! Spring has certainly sprung here in Australia and I’m loving the warmer weather.However I’ve been creating with the new Celebrate Autumn collection by Echo Park Paper. Oh my goodness it is so cute!! You can see for yourself HERE the whole collection.

With so many beautiful colours and patterns to the papers, I just wanted to use all of them! Here is a little look at my completed layout-

The leaves and lettering cut files were designed by the lovely Ashley from The Cut Shoppe via Etsy.I loved the leaves as I could add lots of the patterned paper as a background.

I added the leaves to my page with foam tape so they had a ‘risen’ appearance to them.I placed my photos flat beneath them so it looked like the leaves were falling down my page.

I added balance to the bottom of my page by using one of the sweet border stickers from the sticker sheet . Can I also take a minute to say, how cute is that Hedgehog?? Love him! He was part of the chipboard stickers.

I also added another small cluster of chipboard stickers to the base of my main photo.I love the dimension chipboard stickers can add to your layout.
