@ Chococo

So it would seem I'm leaning towards layouts that are heavy on one side with lots of white space on the opposite side at the moment.  Without realising it, I have made my last three layouts to this general rule - photos, words, embellishments on one third of the page and nothing in the other two thirds.

I've also been following the No Scrapbooking Police blog series about and I can tell you it is brilliant - if you scrap, read these posts and be freed!

So I'm completely OK with the amount of white space I'm leaving - I know it isn't 'in' or 'on trend' but I'm just doing my thing.

On to the layout; I've used supplies from my counterfeit kit, and taken inspiration from Ashley Calder and Scrap Your Scraps' challenge.  They challenge you to make a project based on something you've pinned on Pinterest.  I pinned this image...


 of cute altered paper clips.  I have approximately 6000 paper clips but apparently only one is gold coloured.  If I'd had a choice I might have gone for the more conventional rounded shape rather than the square end...

I figured that as I had put so many alphas in my kit I'd be fine to do a super long title.  As it is mixed font I didn't think it needed any other embellishment besides the paper clip.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love this layout, Laura! White space is definitely trendy-I think it's a trend that is here to stay! Beautiful color scheme and embellished paper clip. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  2. I am loving the paperclips. I guess I am going to be busy making some of those:)

    1. Let's face it, between the two of us and our washi collections we could make paper clips for half the population!! :)
