Totally thankful | Michelle Whorwood November 26, 2016 07:00

Hi everyone,

Michelle here, today I am sharing a layout in the theme of 'Thankful'.  I have so many things to be thankful for in life I sometimes forget to celebrate the little things like heading to the beach after school to hang out with my kids in the glorious sunshine.  I am lucky here in New Zealand to live only 5 mins drive from a stunning beach so my layout is of my youngest playing in the sand the other day. 

I have used one of the new background cut files in store called Feather background and cut this out on some white cardstock.  I then added a piece of patterned paper behind the feather design to create a wall paper like effect on my page. 

Some close ups:

What have you got to be thankful for?  Will you play along with us this week and create a layout about something you are thankful?

Michelle 


She's A Hoot! October 29, 2016 07:00

Hey everybody, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout!  This time I'm focusing on Halloween, and I don't know about any of you, but sometimes traditional Halloween icons and colours don't really match what I'm doing.  For my daughter's second Halloween she was a cute pink owl.  When it came time to scrap the picture I knew I wanted to go in a different direction, but that doesn't mean I can't use an awesome cut file to emphasize my theme!  I picked the lovely feather background and cut it from white cardstock.  I backed my cutfile with some Pink Paislee Fancy Free paper and then backed the entire thing on some polka dot paper.  Since I had such a busy background I decided to keep my layering and embellishing to a minimum.  I used a white doily behind the pictures to add a little bit of visual interest and I splatters some bright pink colour shine to top it off!  I love the simple sweetness of this layout, the femininity and softness of it compliments the photos perfectly, and the feather background creates such an interesting look.  So remember, when you're scrapping your Halloween photos don't just stop at the Halloween cutfiles, there are lots that you can easily work into whatever theme you are going with!
