'Life @ 27' – Scrapbook Layout

See larger image

Hey everyone. August seems to be flying by fast, and it will soon be my birthday again! So, I thought I would share with you a layout which i made a couple of months ago but haven’t had a chance to show you yet.

i’ve been cooped up this week, hiding beneath a duvet surrounded by a tissue graveyard. This is the worst cold have had in ages, and thus, i’ve not been in my craft room – so all the more reason to dig out an already made but not yet seen layout to share.

The large flower is actually the head of a bunch of artificial flowers which I believe originally came from the PoundShop. I loved the large size, and the many petals, and wore it in my hair a few times before it found a home on this page. Who says embellishments have to be expensive!? For the main part of the page, I drew around a JBS journaling scrapbook page to get the cute label shape, and I wanted a colourful yet sharp contrasted look, so chose a palate of blacks, pinks and greens.

Glitz designs – papers and rub ons (aren’t those birdies cute?)
Bisous chipboard
Flowers – poundshop, docrafts
brad – trimcraft
chipboard letters – American Crafts & Heidi Swapp
DCWV adhesive cardstock
paper punch
Glossy accents
Scalloped edge border strips

thanks for stopping by and hopefully i’ll be feeling better soon so i can get crafty.
