15 loves {June 2015}

Welcome to the next in the series {15 loves} for 2015 based on the original concept by my beloved friend, Pam, back in January 2013. I shared my loves (mostly late) all through 2013 & 2014 and now it's time to see if I can continue the series through 2015. I hope you will come back each month to see if there is anything in my list to inspire you. You can see all my {13 loves} {here}, my {14 loves} {here} and now all my {15 loves} {here}

I hope there's something in here to inspire you or maybe just make you smile.


I've been sorting layouts. Hundreds and hundreds of layouts. There's a lot of progress and several hundred are now sitting in albums in roughly chronological order awaiting the next step of the process. There's a lot of work still to be done and some years are way over-scrapped but it's good to see boxed layouts seeing the light of day and a beginning to my system.


Talking of sorting layouts into albums and beginning on a system, I had already purchased the Shimelle course, Cover to Cover in anticipation. So when the Deep Dive Paperclipping audio course was released featuring Shimelle and Noell talking about Story Centred Albums, it was a no-brainer for me. It's fantastic and I can only recommend it as a spring-board to get those thoughts whirring about how you want to organise your layouts and ultimately, your stories. I've listened to it about five times all the way through now and each time I do, I come up with more ideas and more stories that I want to tell. Fabulous.

I love moons. I love full moons. Not sure I'm cool enough to carry this ring off, but I love the idea.

It's summer round here and luckily for me (or unluckily for the diet), there's an ice-cream parlour right opposite where we live now. Yes, we are frequent visitors and yes, Erdbeerbeche (strawberry sundae) is a winner every time.


Who doesn't love happy mail? This delightful package arrived from Lynnette and made me smile all day long. She is a sweetie! 


There's a lot of sorting, decluttering and reorganising going on round here and I love this shelf wall. I'd love to set up something similar - just not sure where right now. Floating shelves have been a favourite of mine for some time. Dust traps they may be, but I love the look of them.

Resort Fling by Essie. A great summer shade for those rare occasions when my nails can stand some attention!


I first saw these on Pinterest and saved them right away. Love the idea of map buttons. I wonder if I could convince Sylvia at Scrapabilly to allow me to make some map flairs? I see more maps in my future. I especially love how my of these buttons below feature towns in my area of Germany!

A Pinterest find but originally from the Veridiana Fromm blog. There are loads and loads of gorgeous buttons to be found over there


Just a silly that made me smile. So true, so true.


I pinned this from the members only area of Simple Scrapper and I just knew right away that I need to do this - that paper and the pile of photos combined with the long journalling. Love it.

This is my life.


Such a great, simple look. The pops of red and union jack blue are perfect with the neutrals. Another look for me to ponder for our new home. We have a lot of neutral round here.

I love the look of the new Simple Stories collection Summer Vibes. We don't really do a lot of real summer stuff that needs this type of collection but you can be sure that several items will make it into my shopping basket on Thursday when I get to Scrapabilly again after a 4 week hiatus! This layout by Ashley Horton is a perfect example of the fun style that comes from mixing these gorgeous products.


My mum sent me this the other week. I thought it was hilarious. Maybe it's just me? What do you think?


Last but not least, who can resist these little ballet feet?!? My two year old niece and her first performance. Adorable!

Ilove you to share your own {15 loves} lists with me. Why not link up in the comments below?


  1. This is fabulous Lisa. I've copied the dance like no one quote. Love it!!
    I don't even know if I have 15 loves. Good luck with the layout sorting.

  2. I'm starting to feel like when I look around I'm the adultiest adult and I don't think I signed up for that..

    Great selections, as always

  3. What a fun collection of items! Great to see that you're making progress with organizing your layouts - I keep putting that off because the thought of the mess I'm going to make is quite overwhelming! The strawberry sundae looks yummy, and the dancing quote and the card gave me a laugh. Thanks for sharing all this!

  4. Great picks - I smiled and chuckled several times. I've been lucky enough to come across some Essie colors on sale - nothing as bright as that yummy shade - but at least my tootsie will have a varied, but subtle, wardrobe.

  5. You've made me smile - I giggled at the dance/phone one! Those map buttons are lovely - I adore anything to do with maps. An ice-cream parlour opposite? Well, I'd never be making another dessert, that's for sure :).

  6. keep us posted on the progress you make with your pages. I know it is overwhelming job but you will be so proud when it is completed:)

  7. I've seen that adultiest adult a couple of times and smiled/sighed each time. I like that page with the pile of photos - always a sucker for lots of journalling.

  8. Always a treat to peek inside your noodle :-)
    Those baby ballet feet are the absolute most precious thing I think I've ever seen... sigh
    Question: when you say you've sorted your pages chronologically, do you mean by the subject or date scrapped? (Assuming the first?)


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