Creative Pay it Forward 2013

In the beginning of the year a message was posted on facebook. If you commented on the post the person who posted it had to send you a hand made gift (anything hand made, even a song, poem, written letter or mix tape) during the course of the year. You then had to post the same message to your timeline and send gifts to the first 5 friends who commented.

I ended up with 3 friends who commented and decided to make these super cute mini albums using Silhouette shapes that I discovered in a tutorial found here.

Here are some examples of the gifts I sent:









Thanks for looking! Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it.

Scrap Around the World: My favourite colour is YOU

Yet another inspiring mood board at Scrap Around the World this month. I couldn't wait to play along.


I used watercolour paint to create the paint drips, then hand cut the banner pieces from co-ordinating coloured patterned paper, added some twine, flowers, rhinestones and washi tape. The pretty rose paper clip is from Typo.

Here is the mood board.

My favourite part of this layout is definitely this little cluster:


And my title:
