Scrapabilly shares #2

If you dropped by yesterday, you'll know that I'm sharing creations with the Scrapabilly October kit full to the brim with Kaisercraft products.

Today, I'm back to show you the next two layouts I made.

I described how I didn't only make autumnal layouts although the kit gives you that feeling when you first look at it. But I discovered that there was so much more to be found in the kit items and made two autumn pages and two completely off-theme.

This first page was for the first day of LOAD1013 which is dedicated to one of our Scrap Happy sisters who sadly died earlier this summer. A hard loss for us all, and day 1 was to be inspired by her. I decided to go with the idea of a message to my niece. Doilies made a pretty contrast to the more graphic designs of the papers and a few pink letters added another dimension.

I "painted" the tag with gold mist. You can't see it so well here but there is a lovely shimmer to it IRL. Gold ribbon just added to the shimmer. (even though the use if this small piece of ribbon isn't going to make much of a dent in my HUGE ribbon collection, even if I've thrown half of it out recently)

My sister's pet name for my niece is Little Bird so I thought this veneer was the perfect addition.

And here is the 2nd autumn layout I made. These photos are a few years old and is one of the most amazing trees I've ever seen. I used to "visit" it every week when I was teaching in Oberhausen and would marvel at its beauty while my students hardly ever even noticed it. These photos really are just one week apart. I would wait excitedly until the leaves started to turn until the whole tree with all those thousands and thousands of leaves changed colour to the most incredible red. And then, whoosh, they all fell to the floor. It was one of the last trees to lose its leaves in November and then the same would happen in reverse in spring. Incredibly beautiful and some photos I've wanted to scrap for some time. Happy to see them showcased here.

There is a whole lot of papers and elements in the kit and if I get to make up another layout, I'll be sure to share again.

In the meantime, if you are in Europe and shop online, do make sure you check out the Scrapabilly shop. Every week there is a fabulous offer on one of the manufacturers stocked - right now, 20% off DCWV. Worth a visit and the ever delightful Sylvia has so much gorgeous stock - I'm so happy to have found her and my stash has exploded with beautiful papers and embellies over the last couple of months!


  1. Love the first LO

  2. Oh both are just fabulous ... I just love them. And that layering, awesome :)

  3. So nice to see how you have honoured this very beautiful tree, both as it was turning red in all its glory and then in this lovely page.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
