Novembeeeeeeeeeeeer?! What the?! It's like I blinked and the last 2 weeks of October went by without me noticing it. Ugh. That means Christmas is just around the corner! YAY and UGH! So much to organise still and yet...CANNOT WAIT TO DECORATE!
But I am totally off-track because I'm here to share my pages using the November kits!! WOHOO! Unlike the last few months I'll share a layout first because I've not quite finished the PL spreads yet..... (4 weeks are almost done, got all the photo's/cards in place just need to journal....on the list to finish this weekend I promise!).
This month's "Stories" kits are amazing; the Main kit is jam packed with so many goodies and the some of the prettiest exclusive die-cuts ever! And you know what that means...yep, I totally put a bunch of them onto my page!
Look at those die-cuts! Are they not the cutest? YES!
This page design is one I've done a few times before and I'll never tire of it (sorry to those of you that like to be unique every time, lol, I cant and I'm all for scrap-lifting myself over and over and over again!). I started with the "leaf" die-cuts because of they way they angle (just seemed natural to have them form the basis of my circle) and then I Just kept picking pieces that I loved.
Once I was happy with all the pieces on the page I used a little glue (glue pen) to hold them in place and finally machine stitched them in place.
The glitter foam thickers are gorgeous - I LOVE the colour - so I popped the "hello" in the centre and added a few stars randomly around the circle.
My photo and journaling are tucked at the bottom and to give the page more structure I added a couple patterned paper strips at the top and bottom (helps draw your eyes in and also fills in all that white space left over!).
And isn't it so annoying to finish a page; photograph it and then find a spelling mistake?! GAH. I've lost count how many times I've done it so I just scribbled the missing "s" and I'm rolling with it. ;)
And that my friends, if my first page using the November Main kit! WOHOO! Can't wait to share the other pages with you but they are for another day ;)
Thank you so much for stopping by! Take care, Em xo
