Hello there!

Hello there! How are you? It is so lovely you have come by to see what is happening here today!

This is my first post as a Designer for SHOP AND CROP SCRAPBOOKING and I hope I can inspire you with some of the lovely papers I received to create with..

I received papers from Photoplay Papers - Falling Leaves pack which are perfect for all your Autumn memories..

Photo PlayFalling Leaves  Collection Pack 12 Rich oranges, browns, reds and creams.  I found some photos of my Daughter enjoying the leaves in the local park and have used them on my page.

I wanted to use some of the images from the 3 x 4 cards FL2327, on my layout so I chose the ones that best suited and went with a Project Life type of design.
Photo Play Paper - Falling Leaves Collection - 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper - 3 x 4 Cards   I cut my photos the same size as the cards and mat my photos and cards on a light brown cardstock. I also lightly distressed the edges, something I regularly do on my layouts.  I built up the base with the Falling Leaves paper FL2326 and mat my photos and cards on the paper Give Thanks FL2325. I also like using my punches and dies so I added punched edges and my dies to cut out some leaves for embellishment..

Some closer views..
  I also put some cardboard under my photos just to add some dimension.

I love how the papers are so co-ordinated and look great layered together.

Some household string and a chipboard piece and a leaf make a great embellishment to the 3x4 cards.

and my layout..

Autumn Beauty.

Other products from my own supplies include brown cardstock, green cardstock, string, flowers, die cut leaves and alphas. You can find these lovely Autumn papers at the SHOP AND CROP SCRAPBOOKING SHOP HERE!!

The second layout I would like to share with you today has been created using some wonderful papers from the
My Minds Eye Range - Hooray

Image result for My Minds Eye papers range HoorayThese papers are perfect for using for your little girls birthday celebration photos! I found a red and a yellow cardstock from my stash and used them for the base of my layout. I used an edge punch to add a fun edge and then I used a Kaisercraft Stencil with some water colors to add some texture to the background.

I found a photo of my youngest when she had her 4th birthday and I have used this on my layout..

Some closer views..
 Fabulously fun papers which I have layered up under my photo.

I fussy cut the letters H-O-O-R-A-Y from paper Say Hooray #HRY105 and added some cardboard for dimension with some hand drawn stitching and created a fun banner at the top of my layout..

I received some cute little chipboard pieces which I inked with a red ink pad and placed around my page. I also used some stickers from the Sticker Sheet too..

My layout... HOORAY!!

I have also used some gold cord, ribbon, black zig writer, modeling paste, water colors, Martha Stewart edge punches, and red ink pad from my stash. You can find these fabulous party papers at the SHOP AND CROP SCRAPBOOKING SHOP HERE!!
