Pumpkin Patch

I don't often make double layouts, but I had a few photos of Scarlett at Tulley's Farm Picking a pumpkin and some lovely papers from the Pink Paislee - Paige Evans - Truly Grateful collection. The papers complimented the autumn colours as well as Scarlett's pink jacket. 


For the first page I used some Lace Bazzill as a base, and inked the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. I cut a 9" x 9" square from paper #23, I rounded the corners, inked it with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and mounted it onto a piece of Mardi Gras Bazzill. I Cut a strip of the same paper #23, 3" x 12", and mounted this onto more of the Mardi Gras Bazzill, rounding the corners and inking the edges, I placed it across the middle of the layout. I added the 9" square over the top of this.


With another 3" x 4.5" piece of #23 paper, I punched down one side with a Binding Edge punch from EK Success. I used the corner punch on the opposite two sides, Inked the edges and mounted onto more Mardi Gras Bazzill. This was added to the top right of the 9" square. I used a Martha Stewart border punch to make some 'lace' with Petunia Bazzill. This was used to border the side panels. 

The photo was mounted onto a piece of Beeswax Bazzill and added to the bottom left of the 9" square.


Then with scraps of the Bazzill used already, I die cut a lot of leaf fronds with two sets of Sizzix Thinlits from Tim Holtz - Funky Floral #1 and Funky Floral #2. These were arranged around the edges of the layout onto the Lace Bazzill.

I cut letters for the title with the Mardi Gras Bazzill and the Sizzix Bigz Die - Handmade. These letters were coated with Glossy Accents. Tulleys Farm was written with with Pinkfresh Studio Just A Little Lovely - Mini Puffy Alpha Stickers.


 
For the second page I used another sheet of Lace Bazzill. With a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil,  Distress Inks and a blending tool I inked small hexagons randomly onto the Bazzill. 

I cut some of the hexagons from paper #21 of the Truly Grateful collection, inked them and arranged them onto the layout. Then from paper #06 I cut the top and bottom rows of zig-zags cutting along the scalloped lines. I inked them and added them to the layout.

I decorated the points of the zig-zags with some tiny purple flat-backed pearls. Then I added some pink, mustard, purple and white pearls randomly over the layout.

Finally I die cut more leaf fronds as for the first page, and added then in pairs around the layout.


Thanks for looking.

Norfolk Lavender - October Papermaze Crop

Here is the layout I designed for the October Papermaze Crop last weekend. For details of the crops please see the shop site.


The photo was taken at Norfolk Lavender back in 1995 when the children were three years old, and we spent several holidays on the North Norfolk coast.

For this layout I selected papers from Simple Stories - Simple Vintage Botanicals collection.
I used Distress Oxide Ink pads, an old gardening book from a secondhand book shop,

Stamper’s Anonymous stamp sets - Flower Garden & Nature Walk and jute twine. 

I had fun making this layout, and seeing others make their version of the design. It was another successful crop day at Otley Village Hall.
