Hi ladies, Tracie here! Hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas and are settling back into normality again now?
When I came to do this month’s blog post I couldn’t shake off the Christmas crafting I’d been doing and it made it’s way into my layouts!
After making several of those ribbon trees that are dotted all over the net, I was folding ribbon in my sleep! so it didn’t come as a great surprise that when I put them aside to do some scrapbooking, my ribbon turned into paper and I was busy making loops to fit my page!
For my first layout I wanted to create a border between the journalling and the photo to fit in with my theme of being ‘next door’ – the gorgeous Basic grey range Serenade worked beautifully with the old photo of my lovely nan
I had lots of little strips of paper left after finishing this one so I just folded them to the reverse side (the joys of double-sided papers!) and used them up on my second layout as ‘ribbons’ for my kite.
I thought you might all be fed up of Christmas and winter layouts now, so decided to bring a little sunshine back by scrapping a summer photo! Which reminds me, I really must apologise for the dismal qaulity of the photos, but someone appears to have stolen the daylight in these parts!!
Well, that’s it from me for now, apart from to wish you all a very happy new year!
