Once a year I get together with a group of crafty friends for a weekend away. We spend the time creating, chatting, laughing (lots of laughing!) and enjoying each others company. I always look forward to our weekends away and thought that the Horizon collection would be perfect for scrapbooking photos taken during one such weekend. My layout is very busy and has 10 photos (+ one hidden photo) but I'm really pleased with it.
I chose three papers to use - #11, #14 and #15 and a sheet of Navy Bazzill cardstock. I also used a cut file called 'Eat Sleep Scrap Repeat' from Paige Evans.
The cut file was cut from smooth white cardstock and backed with the #14 paper. The different patterned squares in this paper makes it perfect for backing cut files.
I made the heart in the cut file into a shaker packet using some acetate and some multi coloured sequins from my stash.
When I fixed the #15 paper to the layout I made sure to leave a gap in the adhesive at the top so that I could tuck three tags underneath. The tags were cut from white cardstock and I attached reinforcing rings cut from scraps of the patterned paper and added pink ribbon to the holes. On the tags I added a photo of my friends and some journalling about our weekends away.
I embelished the layout with a scattering of sequins and some gorgeous pink layered Traveler's Journal Flowers from Prima. I had not seen these in the shop before but I just had to pop along and buy myself some more! They are also available as layered hearts and butterflies in pink or blue.
Do take a look at this collection in the shop and all the other gorgeous new goodies which are regularly being added.
