Hi Magpies! It’s Wendy here back on the blog and this month I have chosen Paige Evans’ Bungalow Lane Collection. There was so much variety to chose from in this gorgeous collection and could be used with many different photos.For my first layout I chose paper no 7 as I loved the  flowers on it. My first thought was to fussy cut a selection of the  flowers and see what happened next! The Life Captured on the cut apart paper 24 was also perfect for my photos. I made my photos square as the frame space on the Life Captured was square and then matted them on patterned paper from the collection.

Having played around with a few ideas of placement of everything, I removed everything and made a mixed media background.

Then I started fixing the fussy cut flowers to the layout, followed by the photos.

Once the photos were attached I added another floral cluster above the two  photos to the right of the layout. I added the epoxy camera over the Life Captured camera and fussy cut the Pure Happiness from paper 23.

At the bottom of the two photos I added some embellishments from the sticker book and epoxy stickers.

The layout felt a little bare to the top right so I created a cluster using fussy cut elements from paper 23 and an epoxy sticker. I also hand punched a heart from the reverse side of this paper.

To finish the layout off I added some mini heart stickers and some white splatters.

LAYOUT 2 Home Sweet Home

My nephew and his girlfriend  had just bought a plot of land to build their own home in Australia this collection was perfect for the photos they sent me.

To showcase all the different papers I decided to use 2″ squares of the different designs in the 6×8 paper pad. This pad has the most gorgeous designs with a lot of gold embossing on the papers. I made double layers to give dimension and paired the colours of the papers. I machine stitched around a selection of the squares. Some were mounted on sticky fixers and then I arranged them in a grid down the page.

I used the chipboard Home Sweet Home banner as the title across the middle of the layout. Then I added a selection of embellishments across the squares using the epoxy stickers, chipboard elements and stickers from the sticker book.

I fussy cut the scallops from paper 15, and then used the strip as a template to create another layer of them. I then distressed the edges and added them either side of the layout and added some epoxy stickers.


Finally I added some gold splatters over the layout to compliment the gold on the papers.

I hope these layouts have given some inspiration from this lovely collection. I will be back at the end of the month with another two.

Please do post your layouts over on the Hey Little Magpie Chat and Inspiration Facebook page , we love to see your creativity.

Till next month…. Happy Scrapping!
