November at Scrapabilly #3
Back again for my last shares with the November Scrapabilly Kit des Monats featuring Jen Hadfield for Pebbles, Warm & Cozy collection. I loved the neutrality of all the papers with the rose gold elements. It really did make me feel all warm and cosy and ready to bunk down for the winter. Love this time of year!
For my last two pages, I decided to head back to 2007 and touch on two more snippets of my Yukon adventure story. The papers had that rough and ready feel to them and seemed perfect.
I scrap lifted myself for this sunburst effect page because I wanted to showcase as many of the papers as possible on one page. It's quite a lot of work to do and the stitching is fiddly but I adore the results and will no doubt make more versions of this design.
I really wanted to find a way to use this pocket page card with the photo realistic design. Not always easy but this seemed an ideal page. And again, there's that long title made possible by the added in mini alpha.
An off the page cluster with a hint of dimension was all this page needed to feel finished. The stitching along the sunbursts is the main embellishment and with all that detail, I wanted to be careful not to over decorate.
Finally, here's a page about our daily breakfasts while we were on the road.
Imperfect photos make for a perfect story and I'm so happy to have captured this little - even the hand grabbing the last blueberry pancake with a plastic fork makes me remember these days with longing! (yes, when it was our turn for breakfast or food, we went with the disposable options to limit the tidy up work - lazy but true)
I really went to town with the sprays for this one and ended up ironing the paper to get it relatively flat again. I don't do this sort of wet technique very often but I like the effect here.
The layout uses up a lot of scraps and last bits of washi tape with which I cut out some stars to scatter - subtle but there.
Another of the photo realistic pocket cards seemed to find just the right place on this page. It was a great relaxed start to our day - every second morning!
I picked out several elements out of the die cut pack which supported my theme but didn't overpower the overall design.
It was lovely to see you here today. If you'd like your own kit to work with, you can find the kit here on the Scrapabilly site. Don't forget to check out the Design Team gallery here while you're there. I love looking at the gallery to see all the different ideas we've come up with. You can also find the Schnick Schnack Sack (embellishments) and the Pretty Planner Pack kits and galleries there too. So much to discover and so much inspiration to be had.
I'm hoping to get back soon to share my Simple Scrapper November makes so come back soon.
