Scrappy Weekend Layouts Part 1

Since I came home from my scrappy weekend I have managed no crafting at all. Even though I had the week off work I used the time to catch up with friends and chill rather than craft. I have realised though I've neglected to show you the layouts I did make while away, so here are a few and I'll show the rest in another post. 

Hello my name is Skip
I thought it was time the newest edition to our family, my inlaws puppy Skip, got his first layout. This photo was taken the day they brought him home. I used papers from Studio Calico, words from Maggie Holmes, Freckled Fawn arrows, Amy Tann Thickers & I finally used the Hello My Name is... Die cut from MME I've had in my stash for ages! I finished with splashes of Seafoam & Shell Mister Huey's 

Yule Ball
Another one for my Harry Potter album, this time photos of the Yule Ball centre piece. I love the Studio Calico star paper, I feel it makes the photos pop. I matted this onto a sheet of Kesi Art paper to make a border, and used a scrap of Studio Calico paper I had next to me. I cut into some Maggie Holmes Styleboard project life cards to embellish and used some glitter thickers. 

Just add Bond
I had this photo in a box with some scraps of paper to make a layout for a couple of months but hadn't had chance to scrap it. I used papers from Crate Paper the Pier & Close Knit, and Amy Tangerine. I then just clustered random embellishments and used two different fonts for my title 

Stay tuned for part two later this week xx
