The patterned paper mystery....


CNY2013

I pride myself on being very "controlled" when it comes to scrapbooking supplies. I don't buy paper packs. Because I have a tendency to get bored with the same pattern. I buy individual pieces that I really love from each collection and prefer to make my own embellishments from found objects.. And I haven't bought any patterned paper since September 2012. So why is it I'm still drowning in patterned papers? A real mystery eh? *LOL*


I had a lot of fun creating this little "scene" - my nephews and niece with their great-grandma and grand-aunt.  It's a composite of 2 photos actually. *winks*



How to create a supply list tutorial.

Inspired by the sketch at Skissedilla.

that is a gorgeous scene you have created yvonne... especially the one inside the bottle ring... it is totally out of d box... and what an amazing memory to record... the picture in itself speaks a thousand words... beautiful...!!and mix-match PP... looks like they belong to the same collection... Am a sucker for PPs and love buying and hoarding them... Cannot have enough of them...!!

Awesome layout Yam..and scene that you have created shows how well you plan your LOs with PPs. The pic s no neatly cut. Everything is perfect here..I am crazy about PPs and buy them frquently but find less heart to cut beautiful designs.

Ali said...

This is soooo clever!! Brilliant idea to use two photos to create one perfect one ;0)

Helen Tilbury said...

I love how you made a scene - it's so cute! I buy a lot less patterned paper than I used to. Paper packs are a big mistake - you get stuck with all that stuff forever, and whereas I used to buy 2 sheets of each paper per collection I'll buy about 6 individual sheets per collection now & only one or two collections per manufacturer rather than all of them!

Jessi Fogan said...

I think it's true, it breeds when we're not looking!
I LOVE the genius way you put the photos together - you know we never could have guessed if you didn't tell! They fit together SO perfectly! And as always, you do the most incredible upcycling :)
