Fireside Bliss

The For the Love of Pretty Paper Facebook group have started a series of challenges to use up some of our stash. For me this is great as I'm on my spending freeze at the moment! One challenge was to use our wood grain stash, patterned paper, wood veneer etc. I went through my stash and pulled out anything wood related I could find and. When I think of wood I think of the great outdoors and campin, so I pulled a photo from our camping trip in April and scrapped this layout. 
The orange paper framing the page is the B-side of a Websters Pages paper which was a wood grain pattern with a lovely orange and blue lace pattern on it. As lovely as it was I found it to over powering to use as a background so I flipped it over and used the reverse! The wood background is Amy Tangerine, the turquoise paper Simple Stories. I used a wood veneer wordl, wood grain washi & wood grain stars. 

I finished off by using die cut shapes from Fancy Pants, a Flair badge, some word stickers from Crate Paper (my fave at the moment) and some sprinkles of Heidi Swapp Gold colour shine. 


  1. A fab layout. I must admit I have a few wood grain papers left, I really love them

  2. Really lovely and your papers complement the photo beautifully

  3. I love the gold colour shine - it reminds me of sparks flying out from the camp fire! Lovely page Jess x
