Hello again Magpies,

I hope you’re all well and getting back to normal, whatever that is nowadays!

This month I’m working with a fun collection aimed mainly at younger children, so I had to search my files for some baby and toddler photos! My first layout uses a large cut file title and some background stencilling.



I started by stencilling a sun burst in yellow paint onto a blue background card, positioned slightly to the left to allow space for the title. I added some ink splatters in yellow and orange over the starburst.  I backfilled the title using the chequered patterned paper and glued it into place below the sun burst. I drew around part of the cut file to make it stand out more.


I matted the three photos over some dark blue paper and for the top one I left the stripy border at the top. I couldn’t resist the pink flamingo so he got placed alongside the photo!


Then I added my journalling which I had typed, cut into strips and I placed some thin washi tape between the lines of type. I used stickers below the title and alongside the photos, they’re really colourful and made the layout look quite jolly!


I used the washi tape to make a frame around the layout and glued a few enamel dots and stars to finish it off.




I’ve also used paint on my second layout this month with lots of splashes in yellow, orange and blue. The blue and green horizontal stripes were made by dipping the edge of an old credit card into paint and dabbing it onto the background cardstock. I concentrated the painted area towards the lower part of the layout.

I tore two strips of patterned paper and glued them in place below the main area of paint.


I backed my photo with some green paper and a layer of the rainbow design paper. Then I fussy cut a few of the little rainbows and placed them at the top of the photo with a cute bird.


I chose an alphabet from my stash as I didn’t have the one included in this collection and placed the title over the painted area. I added more fun stickers, a few enamel dots and a secondary title.


I let some of the stickers overlap the torn border.


I placed a couple more die cut stickers with a phrase sticker and some more rainbow shapes at the top left of the page.

This collection is so bright and happy, with lots of primary colours that are perfect for layouts featuring small children! I hope you share any layouts you create on our Facebook page, I look forward to seeing them.

Until later this month, happy scrapping everyone.
