Just check out those big, beautiful baby eyes!! The deep red and creamy colour combo was the perfect match for my My Mind Eye Antique Floral papers.


Designer Papers

I’m a big fan of the Antique Floral paper stack form My Mind’s Eye. It contains an incredible 180 sheets of designer paper. The patterns are mostly quite small scale which I personably really like. Mostly I prefer the smaller scale designs are I feel like they let the focal images take centre stage.

Embellishments

I wanted to keep the focus on the lovely MME papers so I kept embellishments to a minimum. I did add some texture to the paper strip with some old yarn, I honestly have no idea at all where it came from! I often save little scraps of fibres from packaging and knitting projects.

The scrapbook layout needed a little something else and this Papermania Butterfly embellishment jumped out at me. I think it compliments the papers quite well.

I still felt that the layout needed a little more texture. I pinched these leaves from the craft stash of the now six year old in the photos.

Scrapbook Page Title

For the page title I’ve used my XCut Mid West Alphabet die and a scrap of My Minds Eye Antique Floral paper.

I used a glue pen to stick each letter in place – sooo tedious!!! But totally worth it.
