Take a Hike

Hi everyone!  It’s me, Gabrielle here with you today to share a layout I made using the Maja Design ‘Antligen’ collection papers with a little bit of Crea Diem mixed in.  My oldest daughter Chloe loves to go on these little hikes with her friends and uses her phone camera to take pics along the way.  I have to say I was surprised to see the beautiful scenic photos she takes (waterfalls, rock cliffs, beautiful woodland), I had no idea we had these beautiful places to hike right here close to home!

For this page I wanted to use very natural looking papers and embellishments so I went with the soft cool pinks and browns in the Antligen collection….here are the papers I used…



Vårdagjämning  ~  (I used this paper pretty much as is, I just did a little stamping with some white paint and bubble wrap) and did a little edge distressing with the Tim Holtz edger.


Kaffe på trappan  ~  (used as matting for background paper as well as using it with the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die cut…see close up below).

I just love using clock images in my scrapping so I cut out another clock design from the Crea Diem collection paper (below) and used it to tuck beside my photo…

I wanted a very naturalistic look to the page so I used a whole bunch of embellishments from My Little Yellow Bicycles ‘Naturals’ collection (Cork alphas, Etched Wood Buttons, Canvas Tags, Canvas Tape, Cork Stickpins)….as well as some lace from Tresors De Luxe, lightly tinted with tea stain.

The blooms I added were a modge podge of Prima blooms I had left over from old kits as well as some small roses from Dusty Attic.  The chicken wire design I added is again from Dusty Attic, I left the chipboard ‘natural’ in keeping with my design.

I hope you enjoyed my project today and hope that you will try mixing and matching collections, it’s a great way to make your papers stretch!
