Jan Week 2 layout for Being Scrappy...

Hi Everyone!

Does anyone else feel like Christmas is a distant memory already! It was only 2 weeks ago but feels like ages...

This week's Kit from Being Scrappy included papers from the 'Indie Chic' range by My Mind's Eye and some fab Thickers Alphas! I used some pics of Lee from our trip downunder last May, we stopped off for lunch at Paul's Hamburgers in Sylvania. I used to go there when I lived in Oz and wanted a good burger, and they sure didn't disappoint! Just as good as I remember them...

I used the burgundy Bazzill as my base, but gutted a large piece from the middle as I wanted to use some of it to mount the photos on (just leave a 1" border on all sides).

Cut a 9.5" x 11.5" piece of the multi-coloured 'Batik' paper and stick to the left side of the burgundy Bazzill base. Then cut a 1.5" x 12" piece of the cream 'Posy' paper and stick to the right side of the burgundy Bazzill base. Cut a 1" x 12" strip of the burgundy Bazzill and border punch one of the long edges (you won't have one complete 12" strip so will have to cut two shorter pieces and join them together). Next cut a 1.75" x 12" strip of the pink 'Batik' paper and attach the burgundy Bazzill border punched strip just under one of the long edges and then stick to the right side of the layout.

I used 3 x photos and croppped them down - 4.5" x 3.25", 5.25" x 3.75" and 4" x 5.25". Mount two of these onto the burgundy Bazzill and then stick them all down onto the layout. You could of course use any number and sizes of photos for your layout, just play around with the best placement.

Then I added some journaling onto strips of the cream 'Posy' paper.

Add a title using the Thickers Alpha that comes with the Kit. Finish off by using some of the Thickers pieces to add a few extra embellishments to the layout.

This fab Kit is available from here, do have a look at the monthly subscription offer as this does save you money! Then pop on over to Niki's blog to see what she has created with the Kit.

Thanks for looking!
