She Loves Daffodils

Comfort zones... wonderful things!  But this time the challenge was to go outside of your comfort zone.  I soon realised my 'non-comfort zone' was patterned paper.  I am so happy to create without any patterned paper, just using all the other pretties available, that I didn't realise it was a big deal.  I challenged myself to make a layout only using patterned papers...

I kept my snuggly blanky though... white cardstock background!

I also went with like for ever subscriber Heather Bee's challenge of scrapping a photo of yourself with lyrics from a song as the title.

I picked a song by JC Chasez (my favourite one from N Sync!) and hand cut the letters in the Pink Paislee/Paige Evans collection.

I tacked the letters lightly with a dot of glue and then ran them through my sewing machine to make sure none could escape!  I like that they are not thoroughly glued down as they leave little shadows and add a little texture.

And do you know what?  I like patterned paper a lot more now!

  1. Wow Laura; you really did all this by hand???
    Looks great!!

  2. Hi Laura, WOW!!! That's fab.

    Hope you've had a lovely weekend. Sue

  3. I loved seeing this on instagram - it looks even more amazing on the big screen. I just love the quote. It must have taken AGES to hand cut.

    Going to go google the song now :P
