4PP&1SS | Episode 2

I don't know about you but I get overwhelmed when ALL of the new collections come out at once.  It's especially bad after Creativation when American Crafts releases what feels like 100 collections at once.  There also seems to be a supply thing and if you don't buy straight away you miss out forever.  I wonder cynically if that is all part of the plan.  Then there is Cocoa Vanilla and Pink Fresh too... mustn't miss out on them either.  This time I decided I would place one order for all things under the AC umbrella.  Lottie Loves Paper is my shop of choice and I had a good browse and made a list.  Then I crossed off most of the things on the list when I realised how many sheets of paper that would be!  I settled on 5th & Monaco (paper pad, ephemera and stickers), Paige Evans (one sheet of the pastel diamonds) and Maggie Holmes (four sheets of paper and the sticker sheet).  I was so excited by 5th & Monaco and yet it has sat there untouched so far.  When I got the papers 'in the flesh' as it were I loved the Maggie Holmes ones the most.  The colour palette is different from the same old with a rich yet dusky purple.  This is the start of a mini series of creations made with those 4 Patterned Papers & 1 Sticker Sheet.

If a dress was ever made to fit a scrappy collection this is it!  This photo of me as a bridesmaid in 1988 is the perfect match for the Heritage collection.

Plenty of mixed media goodness in the background using mainly Shimmerz sprays. 

Loads of stickers too... I don't usually use this many big feature stickers on one layout!  I guess that is what comes from having only 4PP&1SS and no ephemera.

I added in puffy hearts from an old Pinkfresh release and some teeny tiny heart buttons.

Here's the video:
