Scrap Our Stash - August 'Re-Do a layout'!

Hello, hello. How are you?

Over at Scrap Our Stash we have a new theme for August - Re-do a layout!

With all the new techniques, stash, styles coming out over the past few years, we all probably have a layout we would like to do differently. I actually do re-use photos sometimes and use them in another layout, not necessarily a re-do, but sometimes I just fancy using those piccies again in a different way.

I know some people don't like to re-do, so the challenge can also be to share an early layout and also a more recently completed layout, so we can see how your style (and stash!) has changed.

I loved going back to my very first scrapbook layout and re-creating in my current style. Well 4 years have certainly changed my style! My first layout was very basic, I only had one pad of cardstock and I used some free papers from a magazine, a few heart stickers and a piece of ribbon from a Christmas present, which I think is stuck down with a glue stick! But... it was my very first LO and all in all I still love it! My re-do I have done using Echo Park and American Crafts papers. I just love these kinds of colours together, they are so much fun. I have added some foiled, woven sheets underneath to mat the photo. The flower was a plain white flower, which I have painted with The Stamp Man Moonglow Starburst Stains. They are so lovely, they have built in mica and create a lovely sheen. Prima bling and assorted ribbon finish it off. I have kept the title the same. Spudling is a nickname we gave to Emma when she was little!

Come and join in, use up some stash and have fun with the challenge this month
See you later! K x
