Photostrip fun with wedding pics...

So you may have noticed from my cheeseburger pie baking (which has gone viral on pinterest!), creating a new restaurant reviewing blog 'Yummy Yorkshire' (which needs some more followers please!) and tales of Jubilee celebrations that I have been in a creative funk.
How do you get out of this funk? I find a sketch I like and I scraplift it - just to remind myself I can still scrap. So i used Shimelle's photostrip layout idea - she even gives step-by-step instructions so it could not have been easier. Really.
I remembered about some mini wedding pics from the wedding last summer in California that I needed to scrap and so I arranged them into a photostrip. I also went fro more muted colours and this gorgeous bird cardstock, which I had been saving for a special occassion, for once the misting didn't go wrong and ruin my layout. I felt that using doilies and punching delicate white borders added to the wedding feel of the layout. I had the usual struggle with thickers of not having an 'e' and so used another scrappers advice and went for the 3 backwards - thanks Louise! I am not entirely convinced and may change it when I invest in some more thickers.

So now I am back in the zone I may not leave it so long before sharing some more pages with you all!


  1. Yeah I'm not sold on the dodgy e/3 either! Just buy some new thickers you pikey! Loving this layout - the photo strip is a great idea and I like the different layering up of different colours/patterns of paper. I especially like the polka dot type one, and the Martha border edge ties in great with the doilies!


I appreciate all of the comments - they fuel my blog. Thanks for visiting!
