Everyday Poetry

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE Websters Pages and I was so thrilled when Pam told us that this months Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook was going to feature their gorgeous Everyday Poetry range! Pam teamed the papers up with lots of fab embellishments including Prima flowers, Prima vintage trinkets and a custom designed chipboard birdcage.
For my first page I used my favourite photo of my Grandma which was taken around 1912 when she was just  3 years old. I am totally in love with my Martha Stewart cherished punch at the moment so it got well used on this page along with lots of fussy cutting.


I cut out lots of the little hearts, that are on the back on the paper that the embellisments are stuck onto, and added them around the top of the arch.



My cherished punch got well used on my second page too! To edge my photo I unpicked the Websters Bloomer and machine stitched it in place. I stuck some pieces of scrap cardstock onto the back of the photo to make it sit proud on the layout giving the bloomer room to lay properly on the page.





To pleat the ribbon I simply stitched each pleat into place and tied it off leaving the knot exposed on top.


I took the vintage trinket apart as I just wanted to use the word "Family" on this page, the letters were very easy to separate from the branch and then I simply stitched each letter in place.


I am sure it isn't just me but there are some pages that I create that I just don't feel overly happy with and this is one of them. Never mind, can't like them all I guess.


Here is a photo of the gorgeous kit....


If you want to see what the rest of the design team created then pop on over to the DT gallery at My Creative Scrapbook, they created some stunning pages!!

oh Rachael. I can only echo what Lesley said. I'm sure you could make a black bin bag look fantastic. Is there such a thing as layout envy?

gwyneth said...

Layout envy here too Rachael and yes you could make a black bin bag look stunning !
These pages are absolutely beautiful. Oh I'm really really crossing my fingers again this month. Problem is there might be a lot of scraplifting going on if I get a delivery from across the pond!!!!
