Our Sweet Girl Layout

Hello and Happy (if a little too rainy!) Bank Holiday Monday to you! 

I recently got my hands on some of the lovely Highline collection by Basic Grey, the colours and embellishments are just perfect for scrapping photos of my daughter!

Sometimes I find it tricky to find collections suitable for older children (past the cute/princess/disney stage but not yet a teenager!) but the bright, funky pinks and oranges mixed with the black were spot on!

I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and mist to create the "Love This" in the right hand corner.

A few Heidi Swapp Puffy stickers, Basic Grey Highline chipboard pieces and black gems were all I needed to embellish my page

The chevrons are made with the Stampin Up Chevron punch.

A few ink droplets to finish off!

The finished layout!

 Thanks so much for popping in today!! 

Which collections do you use for scrapping photos of older children?!!

Creating with our Monthly Kit

Earlier this year, we launched our kits. These are released on a bi monthly basis, usually around the cusp of the month. The current kit for May/June was released at the start of June and is called "Hipster"!! It's packed with the very funky Basic Grey Hipster papers and embellishments. I sat myself down to create with a "Hipster" kit and this is the page I made.

The kit has a variety of patterned papers, some are floral, some quite generic and a few which called out to me "Teenage Boy"!!! Perfect for scrapping a photo of my nephew!
The only things I added that weren't in the kit are the black/white thickers letters, the grey striped MME washi tape and a few staples.
I used staples, wood veneers and enamel dots to hold the acetate pieces in place as glue or tape would show through the acetate.
The little Cosmo Cricket letters are ideal for adding details to titles or for journaling. I love how they look almost handwritten on the paper!
I often find it tricky to find papers and embellishments suitable for boy layouts, especially teens but these are spot on!!
I still have loads of papers to make another layout.
There's some lovely floral papers like this one:
and this one:
 Perfect for a more girlie layout so I'll pop back and show you that soon!
Here's a picture of everything that's in the kit:
Please note: Each kit may have slight variations, such as different wood veneers, different coloured enamel dots, metal tab designs.
Plans for the next kit (July/August) are well underway and it's due for release around the end of July/early August, so keep an eye out for that too!
Thanks for stopping by and if you do buy a kit, be sure to link us up in your comment so we can pop over and see!
