Scrapabilly Shares July kit part 2

On Thursday (see post here), I shared what I've been creating with the July Scrapabilly kit which is full of October Afternoon Public Library goodness. Such a great kit and I found it went a long way and filled me with plenty of inspiration along the route.

Just as a reminder for you, here's the kit...

And here are my last two pages and a couple of cards.

I knew right away that I had a book story just waiting to be told and this was the perfect time to grab a photo and record the detail that my very wonderful scrappy friend, Leslie, sent me these books as a gift some time ago after hearing me say how they were faves from childhood! Leslie is in the US and through the wonder of the internet, she found someone selling a vintage (1970s) set in the UK who was willing to send them to me, here in Germany! Such a wonderful, thoughtful present and one that I treasure. So, now was the time to capture the story on paper.

I used the collage style paper for this layout because it reminds me so much of the style of product Leslie likes to use :-)

And this final layout was just a little fun capture to talk about a new friend I've made at Sylvia's crop - she's often a Guest Designer for Scrapabilly too. I decided that it was my job to gently tease her during our crops and to nudge her into action - a bit like a big sister! Now, I know that I'm WAY too old for that but we have some fun and got this selfie at a recent Scrapabilly workshop. And yes, we were at the naughty end of the table!

I was inspired by this gorgeous layout over at Pinterest (here) - originally from Write.Click.Scrapbook (here)

Last bit not least, I was inspired by this gorgeously simple card from Split Coast Stampers (here) ...

To make two cards...

I especially love the tone on tone woodgrain effect on this stunning cardstock. I used every last scrap of it!

Once again, don't forget to check out the Scrapabilly site to see all the team's creations in the gallery (here). You can also find links to Ilonka, Nadine, Maria and Silke's blogs in the right hand side bar. You don't want to miss out on their amazing projects. Make sure you say hi to them!


  1. That's the set of Pooh books I've had since childhood! Mine aren't in such good condition, mind you. It's a lovely bonus to see them as well as your pages with Public Library today

  2. Love these layouts about sweet gifts - books and a new friend. And those cards are simply stellar! ;-)

  3. Oh you just do it so right. You always bring such texture to your projects.

  4. I recognise those books :). What a lovely thing to do, and your page is a great tribute - I always admire what you do with string! And your take on the Pinterest one is just lovely - I do like the rolled edge of the paper. Just lovely ...

  5. I'm so jealous of your kit and this library page in particular.

  6. Another great share Lisa with layouts to die for :)
    In answer to your question (and thank you for all the lovely comments on my blog) I use glossy accents to stick my little bits down - some people use the end of a pin to apply it but that's just to faffy for me!
    You must be able to get it over there, if not I can send you some :)


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