Let's go!

Another couple of favourite layouts from my travel album. Street photography and editing with actions courtesy of A Beautiful Mess.  These are some more papers and embellishments from Studio Calico's Park Ave and Lisse Street kits. Love how all the colours worked together.

Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #215

There's another MIM challenge over on Nichole's blog - letting some of the inside decoration on a card to show through to the outside. What a fun idea!

I had to make a card for one of my cousins so decided to play along. Using Mini Blooms and some dies from the Shakers& Sprinkles kit.  Here's what I came up with:


And the card open:

Streets of London

Time for another layout from my travel album.

Lots of favourite moments and places in London. Here are just a couple. I had some London themed paper but thought the colour wasn't quite right for the layout. The solution - to use some vellum on top - love the soft look. Other papers from Studio Calico's Lisse Street add-on kits and some old Stampin Up paper from my stash.

Dinner for five

Here's another of my favourite layouts from my travel album. This was a lovely dinner with friends. More of the Park Ave kit from Studio Calico in action.

Say yes.. to adventures

Another layout from a weekend away.  Paper from Studio Calico\s Piccadilly add-on (The Underground).

I've been trying most of my journaling because I'm really not that keen on my handwriting. Would love to improve it!

Weekend away

Here's another layout from my UK travel album. Fantastic weekend in a luxurious B & B - lovely for a treat.

I've been enjoying using some of my Studio Calico kits. I've got a lot of use from the Park Ave Scrapbook kit - the colours have worked very well for this album.

Have a purrfect day

I have a few cat-loving friends, so thought a few cards like this wouldn't come amiss. The cat stamp is from Papertrey Ink, the wreath from a Studio Calico set I picked up in a sale.  Colouring with copics.

More cards

Needed a few more cards for my stash so used a few Project Life kits supplies for these. Quick and easy! These are mostly Gossamer Blue kits, with a few extras from my stash.

Pretty pleased with how these turned out.

London calling

A Boden catalogue from last year turned out to be a very useful addition to my UK travel album. Combined with washi from my stash, and some embellishments from Studio Calico. I've been saving up some items that I thought would be useful for this album.

Here's another layout from my UK travel album. This was a weekend I spent near Chichester - fabulous villages and one of those clear crisp English days:
