Manvers Lake Layout!

The idea for today's layout came from this month's Scrapbook Inspirations Shimelle Laine. She used a cut down page protector on her layout so she could add more photos. Now I like to do double page spreads with lots of photos but my albums are bulging. So I thought I would give this idea a try. I made my book up and kept my embellishments flat so I could laminate each page. I then stitched around the front cover so this would match the layout, I stitched the pages together and stuck the mini book to my layout. I have cut a hole in my page protector so the mini book can be viewed. I am really pleased how this layout has turned out and I am glad I took the plunge to try stitching on my layout.

Products Used;

Bazzill cs pale green
12x12 paper from Craft Creations SRO57P Green Meadow Stripes and SRO55P Green Meadow Butterflies.
A Selection of sticker and printed ribbon was also used.

The colours look better in real life!

Have a great day!

  2. Hi Julie,
    I see you're getting spammed just like I have; I always just permanently delete those as soon as I see them so hopefully they'll move on to some other poor soul!
