2 Years Layout

Wednesday, 23 November 2016

Hello! Today I'm sharing this layout I made recently to celebrate my little Pip's 2nd birthday. I knew I wanted to use that '2' card which came in an old Messy Box, and so I worked my layout around that 3x3 card. I tried to experiment with lots of colour and texture and I quite like how it turned out. It did take me longer than usual to put together though, but I think this is because I used many different items from my supplies and tried to tie them all together through coordinating colours. I definitely think I will experiment with the 3x3 size more often!

Yum Layout Feat. Sahin Designs

Today I'm sharing a recent layout I made using the new set, Gather, released by Sahin Designs. I had so much fun putting this together and I've completely fallen in love with circles and my Fiskar's hole punch. I decided to use the enamel dots that came in the Gossamer Blue September kit and some pink tissue paper circles from a very old Messy Box. And, of course, it wouldn't be complete without some gold glittery alphabet stickers! I think I may have to use tissue paper for layouts more often...

If you'd like to check out the Gather collection, you can find it on Elif's store here.

Happy Halloween!

I hope you all have a spooky day with lots and lots of sweets.

Four Years

Sunday, 30 October 2016


Today I'm sharing a layout I made using my new Fiskar's hole punch. I have to say, I absolutely love this punch and cannot recommend it enough - how I made layouts before, without circles, is beyond me! I'm planning on doing a review of it soon so keep an eye out for that.
In this month's Quirky Kit, we received a lot of papers from the Indigo Hills collection by Pinkfresh Studio which has a lot of light pinks, indigo and mustard hues. I particularly loved the pink paper with the flowers on and knew I wanted to use that as a base for my layout. I didn't start this with an intention of being an anniversary layout, it just kinda happened, and I do really like it. I particularly love the pop of yellow in the corner from a Maggie Holmes paper I had - I just wish I had some more yellow embellishments to balance it out a little. Of course, I used my white alphabets and my gold embellishments - my absolute go-tos but I also experimented with that wood pattern paper from a paper pad I had too that I'd never used before.
