Layout - Explore

Another fun Tic Tac Toe challenge is up at Scrap Our Stash this month, which I couldn't wait to have a go at.  The challenge board is:


I chose to use MAP PAPER - THE COLOUR BLUE - EMOJI.   Note that I used the map paper to show where we were when we took this photo! (Alotau, PNG).

Layout recipe:
Paper: Atlas (Pink Paislee)
Embellishments: stickers (Simple Stories), cork arrows and chevron (Studio Calico), palm charm (unknown, from stash), paper clip (Stampin' Up!), emoji (printed from internet), rhinestones (Bo Bunny).

I hope you find time to join in the challenge before the end of the month!

Until next time!

Layout - happiness [is] you and me: wild, barefoot and free

I'm kinda in love with coordinating papers and embellishments, just like you I'm sure!  And when I saw this stunning collection from Kaisercraft called Island escape I just had to have it - papers, collectables, stamps and all! 
Aren't those hibiscuses just beautiful!?  So tropical!  And perfect for more of our PNG cruise photos.  If you love it too be sure to check out Pinterest for some really awesome layouts for inspiration - just search "Kaisercraft island escape".  The bottom strip is that little bit we often cut off with the branding on one side - I just trimmed the paper a bit from the top instead this time!  Perfect!

Layout recipe:
Paper: Island Escape (Kaisercraft)
Collectibles: Island Escape (Kaisercraft)
Stickers: Island Escape (Kaisercraft)

Stick It Down: August single page sketch

Happy scrapping!
