Happy times playing with paper

It's been a long time since I was really able to just play around with paper even though I've managed an odd project or two. But yesterday I decided to leave the TV off and just see how it went.

Back in December, I posted my Counterfeit Kit Challenge December page kit, Anticipate and my good blog friend S kindly pointed out that I had, in fact, forgotten to post the page I talked about in the post. There was a good reason for that. I hadn't made it! I had fully intended to make a page from my kit but the time just ran away and it didn't happen and I forgot that I had written about it.

So that was on my list of layouts I wanted to make and my kit was looking a bit neglected. It also happened to coincide with Whimsical Musings prompt #72 - to use bling, confetti or glitter on our layouts.

A Christmas layout needs a bit of bling as far as I'm concerned so I decided to go overboard and include glitter splats, sequins, glimmer mist splodges and glimmer fabric too. Enough I think?!?

Anticipate page kit layout #1

I did cheat and add in a sheet of white cardstock but that just means that the cream cardstock in the original kit is still waiting to be used and I already have another photo printed out to use for the rest of the kit - I am feeling re-energised :-)

And if that wasn't enough, I had another idea for the Whimsical Musings prompt all about sequins themselves and so I went for it and just got going with a second layout for the same prompt. I used my Counterfeit Kit Challenge January kit, Renew and went with gems, glimmer mist, sequins and the story itself. Another piece in the puzzle of my story.  I love that side of this wonderful hobby of ours.

It's still early in the evening so you never know, I might even just get on with yet another one!


  1. Your layouts always have so much interest ... Lovely

  2. As usual, more beautiful layouts! I think you have mastered the art of splatters. I have that on my list to experiment with more this year. Mine always come out either too fine or, well, just a mess. Wonderful inspiration!

  3. So pretty! I love that your supplies match the story :).

    BTW, I tried to come here by the link on the Mr Linky page, and it didn't work. You might want to try reposting the link.

  4. Both layouts are sensational!! I love splatters mixed with sequins and bling!!

  5. Wowza! What great pages!!!! I love all the pretty misting and ADORE that great big bow!!

  6. Pretty, pretty page. I very nearly threw away a few sequins that I came across in the bottom of a drawer - now I'll have to try and use them - you've done so in such an inspiring way. But I'll never be able to make a twine bow dazzle the way you do. Pretty!

  7. fantastic!

    If you think my digi skills are a little intimidating, you have know how in awe I am of that bow on your page! wow!

  8. Gorgeous pages Lisa. I especially love the double with all that journalling. You have inspired me to get some of my stories down on paper this year.

  9. I like all the little bits scattered across the page like this ... and that bow is just lovely - so ethereal ...

  10. Beautiful beuatiful work Lisa! :) I adore the bow on the ADVENT Lo. You have great skill at this hobby! So much to inspire me! WTG, it's awesome, loved reading your blog!

  11. Love, love, love that purple bow on the 1st lo! Boths your layouts are beuatiful, and I love your clean design (being so differnt from my own... LOL).


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