Summer Memories

Hey there!  Over the summer I loved the Kelly’s Ice Cream adverts where the boy at the end shouts “it’s absolutely banging!”.

I tried all holiday to get a picture of Kelly’s ice cream, but with no luck.  This picture was taken at St Ives.


I used the blue of Elise’s top to determine the main colour, and used Embellishments to add in the other colours.



I also covered the back of a summer Perspextive with patterned paper. It was abit fiddly, but definitely worth it!

Stick it Down Design Team Layout

Hey there, good to see you again!  Today I'm showcasing my last Design Team layout of the year for Stick it Down.

The good news is that I'm staying as a Design Team member for Stick it Down as we go into 2019!

Here is the December sketch:
























And this is my sketch:


2018 has been a busy year for us as a family, with lots of change, so it was nice to complete a layout with lots of journalling!  It also gave me the opportunity to use 2 of my favourite things, Silhouette Cut Files and Sequins!

I hope all my readers have a great Christmas and New Year!

Last Day of Primary School


Hey there, thanks for stopping by. As you can see from the time of my layouts, I’m a few months behind posting!

This layout is of Emily on her last day of primary school. Her friends were at the dining table eating, so this was the best photo I could get.



I’m happy to say that Emily loves secondary school and is doing well.  How quickly they grow up!

Summer Vibes

Hey there, good to see you again!  This layout is one of James and his girlfriend, Elise, on our holiday in Cornwall.

We were at Lizard point and Craig asked them both to go down the cliff path a little. Elise doesn’t like heights, but bravely followed James.



I wanted my page to be light and summery, and my Lottie Loves Paper kit was perfect.

I’m pleased to say that Elise was ok after her cliff walk, but probably won’t do it again.

Grow Together

Hey there, thanks for stopping by!

This layout is another one featuring Emily and Harriett ready for their prom.  This layout is a bit different for me, as I have quite abit of white space.



I love the simplicity of this layout and the fact that your eye is drawn to the photo.

6 O’Clock, time for tea!

Hey there, good to see you again.

When we went to the Minack Theatre in the summer, we went to see an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland, which was brilliant.

Craig took a few good photos, and Echo Park Paper Co Alice in Wonderland Collection was purchased.



The title on this layout is what the Mad Hatter kept saying and looking at his watch, so I had to include a pocket watch and a top hat!
