The Memory Nest - Make It Monday Challenge #74

I'm back today with a scrapbook page for the second October Make It Monday Challenge over at The Memory Nest.

This is the last of a series of pages that I've created for my 2017 album featuring each of my sons. Today it's the turn of my youngest who has recently got engaged and is now busily planning the big day.

I started by adding a variety of papers using the triangles from the sketch. I then partially covered some of them by adding a cluster of cards and embellishments.

I received the most wonderful pocket letter from my PL Pal, Helen, in Australia and knew I would use one of the beautiful cards she created on this layout as the colours were perfect. I just covered the bit of washi tape at the top that said Bonjour with a more apt phrase and sat back and admired her gorgeous detailed crafting.

Paper: Bazzill Basics red cardstock; scraps from my stash
Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Alphas: Lawn Fawn, puffy stickers
Stickers: MME, now & then; AC, Shimelle; Cosmo Cricket, tiny text; Basic Grey, urban luxe; Jillibean soup, saffron yellow pepper soup
Embellishments: Simple Stories enamel dots So Rad

Here's a photo of the whole PL. See if you can pick out the card I used. I also stole an embellishment  from another card! Here's a link to Pocket Letter Pals in case you're interested in discovering more about this amazing way to craft and connect with other crafters all over the world.

Do go check out the pages from the rest of The Memory Nest's DT, they're all totally fabulous!

Huge thanks for looking at my blog today, hope I may have inspired you a little.  And keep crafting!

  1. Great job w/ the sketch! The papers you choose for the triangles all work so well together and that pocket card is a perfect addition!!

  2. What a beautiful layout! Such wonderful papers and elements. I especially like the couple with the balloons. A super take on this sketch. That pocked card is fantastic! I love how you incorporated a bit of it onto your layout!

  3. Congrats! beautifully done! Very cool that you used one of the cards in the Pocket Letter! I just do single ATCs-and am totally addicted-haven't done the whole page though!

  4. So beautiful to see this Jane. I love how you've incorporated the insert from the PL. It's a fabulous LO. Thank you so much for letting me know. Much love my friend.
