Polly Scraps Scrapbooking Kit: We just knew we were having fun.



Hi friends!

Recently I discovered an Australian Scrapbook Kit company based here in Australia.

I wish I'd found it sooner! Polly Scrap Kits has wonderful kits, both for Scrapbooking and Project Life/"Pocket life" projects.

I immediately treated myself to a couple (happy birthday to me!) and when they arrived, well, I just about fainted. Gorgeous. JUST GORGEOUS.

So I've been making scrapbooking layouts for the past week or two, every night. I'm not that fast, but these came together so very easily! I thought I'd share them over the next few days!

Here is my first one.



My goodness it's difficult to photograph white layouts lol.

I took this paper from the kit: (it's Fascinating Friends from Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party)


I cut apart several of the frames, and coloured them with my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Pencils. Had so much fun with this part.


I made sure to shade in the corners to give a nice aged effect.

I took the "sentiment" card (designed for Project Life), and ran it through a diecut machine, with the Mama Elephant Femme Frames die. It gave a gorgeous 'stitched' border edge.  I then cut it in half, before adhering it on either end of the photo, and distressing the edges.


On either end, I added little tags and faux-tags, using the B-sides.


Here's the final version again.


Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another layout!
