WOYWW 116 – layout in progress


This is the layout I hadn’t quite finished at the crop, well on the way to being put in the album.  I will def. finish it today!  Thought I might manage it yesterday but got sidetracked by DD, as is usual. And the earthquake in Virginia, where my parents live.  Their house wasn’t close to the epicenter, and they were actually (wait for it…) on the Jersey Shore, where the family holiday house is.  Yes, yes, I know….we are of Italian descent but I assure you, no “situations” in our family.

Oh, and What’s the deal with non-stick sticky letters??  I thought it was just the HS ones, but these darn felt ones will not stay in place.  It’s doing my head in.

I have made the printable set for Nikki, still awaiting word from her.  Here’s a preview – I hope they fit her kid-friendly/bright/with lines requirements!

And now, do pop over the Julia’s Stamping Ground for a look at workdesks this Wednesday.  Perhaps you’ll find the germ of you next project on one of them!

  1. Here I am!!!!!

    sorry was sunning myself in Rhodes on a family vacation. Just back today! Catching up on all my blogs I missed while I was away!

    At first glance these look fab – will have a proper look when I am all caught up in blog land!

  2. Your lovely LO’s make me wish I had the patience to scrapbook my piles of photos! TFS! #83

  3. I experienced two strong earth tremors when I was in LA several years ago Mary Anne and it was quite frightening, so I feel for your family but I’m glad to hear that everyone was safe.
    Loving your bright cheery LO and the set for journaling are fab, I’m sure she’s going to be pleased with them.
    Have a good week and ……….
    Happy Crafting!

  4. Hi Mary Anne!

    Yes, it was a bit random, me Cross-stitching at the crop, but everything was packed up for the move, and I just couldn’t get my head round trying to kit my pages. Next time hopefully will be a bit different!

    Love the layouts you did – I only saw the one for Belgo Centraal…

  5. Hey, fab lay out and glad your family is safe,

    felt is highly absorbent of water, so any water based glue will not allow you to easily stick –
    to get felt to stick: on the back of the felt shape apply a good layer of PVA ( I know this is still a water based) glue – Let it dry,
    When dry you can notice a fine sealed surface over the felt…
    reapply the pva and stick to your paper/card/substrate – the first layer should ‘seal’ the felt so the glue can stick when you apply the second layer,
    sewing felt onto paper is a beautiful alternative, either by hand or machine…


  6. MAry Anne I watched you on Saturday playing with that LO and I love it the colours draw me in I think. I had fun on Saturday I hope you did too.

    Thise printabes are fab thanks for sharing.

  7. That a fun LO …love the colours …so suit the photos. I have given up with sticky letters …I use glue on all of them nowadays.

  8. Glad your parents are safe and sound. Love the LO, but more importantly is that paper by it all little cameras? If so I NEED some who makes it?

  9. Love this layout – the colours in the photos are picked out very well in the paper and the letters. And talking of non-stick letters, my pet bugbear is non-stick rub-ons – I’ve given up on them and won’t be tempted to buy any more. Glad your parents didn’t come to any harm from the earthquake. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #60

  23. I always love your layouts. They are truly full of fun, have great composition, and lots of inspiration. I don’t scrapbook, so I had NO idea those stickers/letters don’t stick. That’s pretty sad when you pay for something and it doesn’t meet your expectations. Happy WOYWW from #3 this week.
