Scrapabilly February kit shares (part 2)

Back again today with the rest of the Scrapabilly February kit makes. I posted some layouts on Monday but just to remind you, here's the stunning kit we were given to work with:

It's available in the Scrapabilly shop here and the DT gallery can be found here. I recommend you dropping in and grabbing one before they are all gone! A simply gorgeous kit that was heaven to use. 

I nearly bought a second kit for myself but in the end, went the whole way and bought lots of the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection items for my NYC kit. You see, I had decided on the Amy Tangerine Stitched collection to scrap my NYC photos - something about the colours and designs reminded me of the city and it felt a bit "urban". But then I picked up this kit and was inspired - at last - to print out one or two of my photos from my trip there last year. They just seemed to fit the papers in this collection too. So rather than giving up on the original idea, I decided to simply combine the two collection and items I've brought together already into one mega-kit. I will be doing enough pages after all!

So, to cut a long story short, these four layouts are the first four for my NYC album. More to follow no doubt! There's not really a lot to say about each of them as I think they speak for themselves. I continued to add in a little mist, some gold dots (can be found in the shop here and they are really nicely domed, bright gold little dots!), some twine, and a sprinkle of SC veneers.

I probably need to go back to this one and add a little journalling. But to be honest, the layout might say all I want to say at this point!

This came from a LOAD prompt to do a now and then style layout. I especially like the splash of yellow here and the fun journalling along the banner. I kept realising that I had run out of journalling space and still had more to say so I carried on tucking it about the layout! All in all, that is a bit of a Pam thing so I guess it fits!

I wanted to highlight the constellation paper as much as possible but make the layout as pretty as possible at the same time. The veneer stars reinforce the star theme and the little cluster at the bottom is a nod to our neighbouring star signs!

This last layout is a tribute to the wonderfully thoughtful gift that Lynnette gave me when we met in February. Such a thrill and such a beautiful cushion that now has pride of place in my room. Every time I look at it, I think of her and it makes me smile. So I knew that I wanted to make a very pretty, pink layout using up the last elements from the kit. I love it and both the gift and the layout made me happy which means that it was perfect for the Whimsical Musings prompt #159 - inspired by what's making you happy right now. Love it when a plan comes together!

So, there you have it. At last, four layouts to kick off my NYC album covering both trips. I love that I got the inspiration from this kit to start something that felt too big to handle. Now I just need to reduce those 2000+ photos down to a manageable amount to scrap and I'll be sorted.

Thanks for getting this far! I appreciate every single reader and commenter here on this - sometimes - neglected blog. Let me know which layout from which 2015 Scrapabilly kit is your favourite and I might just pick a commenter to receive a little something in the post from me!

Who doesn't love a good Thursday incentive?!?


  1. Such a lovely collection of layouts Lisa! I especially like the Grand Central layout - I'm always drawn to grids. And I really like that you show close-ups of the details of your pages - you are giving me a lot of ideas to scraplift so thank you!

  2. Such pretty happy pages. I don't think I have seen you do many grid designs - great page, that!


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