New Multi Pocket Layout Kits

Hello Everyone,
I'm pleased to say that I now have my first 2 double "multi pocket layout" kits available online.
I love the idea of doing my scrapbooking quickly and being able to fit more photos on a layout. It’s always tricky for me to get the right balance. So when project life came along I was intrigued, I had a bit of a look at the whole concept but decided that it was not for me. But once Graphic 45 started including pieces on their papers the right size for multi pocked pages, I decided to have a go. I tried keeping it simple but it didn’t work for me. I need to do my multi pocket pieces with lots of layers and fussy cutting along with lots of little bits and pieces.  I am really enjoying it...
As soon as I saw Graphic 45’s Gilded Lily collection, I fell in love with it. It’s so pretty and dainty and I have used it for so many projects. It is so perfect for my daughters weddings. I decided to use it for Leah’s wedding and do it as a multi pocket styled layout.
I love doing fussy cutting and layering so this collection is perfect for me.
I cut out lots of the images, some I used as frames and others I just added to my cards with foam tape. I matted my photos, added some of my favourite quotes and some beautiful  letter stickers. Some chipboard corners from Imaginarium Designs, ribbons, metal charms and brads all add to the prettiness of this layout. I am sure Leah and Stewart will love this keepsake of their very special day.


When Graphic 45 sends me a Halloween themed collection, I always get excited. Not because of the Halloween theme, (we don’t really do Halloween in our family so I don’t have any Halloween theme photos), but because of all the wonderful images and colours Graphic 45 always uses.
Once I saw the Rare Oddities Collection, I knew exactly which set of photos I wanted to use. Josh visited “Ripley’s believe it or not”  in San Francisco a few years ago and I took a stack of photos. I just started my cards by cutting out lots of the images and words from all the wonderful papers in this collection. I sorted out my photos and matted them. Then I just layered papers on top of papers, added photos, ribbons, cork chevrons and brads. I still need to add my personal journaling to finish my cards which I will do when I put my layouts into my album.
To purchase these kits or for more information please visit the website of Seriously Scrapbooking. We will be adding more kits as soon as they are ready.
Thank you for reading...
