3 x Trouble!

I made this layout at our monthly crop at Jill's (Cardinal Colours) on Saturday. Another great day with good company food and time to craft in peace - what more could I ask for!! The photo shows my niece, Heather's triplets taken last year at home. A rare photograph of them all together, taken by my SIL Marion.

I created this layout after being inspired by the work of my talented friend Alison.

Alison in turn, had scrap lifted craftystash whose stunning layout can be seen on the UKS website.

I used DMC stranded cotton thread, Fancy Pants papers from the 'Rusted Sun' collection. They papers are double sided so only two sheets were needed to provide four different patterns. I used Umbrella (stripe and yellow flower) and Sunny Day (blue flower and red). These were purchased from Paper Maze. The black beetle Bazzill and the white eyelet Bazzill were both purchased from Cardinal Colours, along with the 6mm double sided tape for creating the pleated circle. 

I also used some dies I borrowed from Linda for the flowers (must ask her what make they were). The centres of the flowers are Card Candy from Craftwork Cards. The stitching along the bottom of the photo and the zig-zag were created with the help of the Bazzill basics stitching templates from Paper Maze. And finally the title was made with Sizzlets Party Block alphabet dies.


  1. Absolutely stunning Hun and even better in real life, love those papers, so vibrant. That is such a wonderful photo too, gorgeous.
    Love Anita..xxx
