I have a new layout to share with you today, thanks to nap time and the lovely Natalie Elphinstone who dared me to make a purple layout. If your not a scrapbooker this probably seems like a really simple task, but in truth purple so challenging to work with. Don’t believe me? Search “Purple Scrapbooking Layout” on Pinterest. For starters you have to combat the retro factor and then there is the issue of ‘what do you pair it with?’. Well in my case – Blue, Orange and Kraft.
Ohhh look at that face. Even in 7 weeks Eva has changed so much. Thanks to the forceps little miss had a swollen face for the first few weeks. Eva’s much leaner in the face now. *Sigh* time…
All the papers in the layout come from Studio Calico’s Lemon Lush line and Basic Grey’s Aurora.
As far as embellishments go it was a really simple layout. I used a cut apart sheet from Lemon Lush and Pink Fresh Studio arrows I had left over from an old kit. To be honest I never thought I’d use them – Yay for a good dare.
The flair is Basic Grey’s RSVP collection. As for the hard labour? Well, I used the silhouette to cut the stars. Stamped a few more with Studio Calico’s lavender Soda ink. The most arduous task was stitching down the stars and that took all of 15 minutes.
Finally I finished the layout off with my favourite Crate thickers and a single line of journaling. Not bad considering my scrap time has been greatly reduced, don’t you think?
