Made with LoveIt all started after a fabulous day spent together crafting.
Deb, Carrie, Alison, Deb K, Denise and I were in a pub and the talk turned to Cate and her impending baby. At the time I didn't know Cate and had never followed her blog but was instantly sucked in at the prospect of a blog hop (especially if everyone else was going to be doing it)!
We chatted through several ideas and settled on making pages for a scrapbook for her to use after the birth of her expected daughter.
So here are the pages I made. They have lots of purple, as that is Cate's favourite colour and as we agreed, are on a white 8 x 8 base with space for six by four photos. I made print and cut titles on my Silhouette (yes I know I say it every time but I just love that machine) and delved into my stash for suitable bits and bobs. As luck would have it, I had made a wedding album for my neice a couple of years ago and that was all purples so had lots to choose from.
I don't often make double pages and when I do make them by sticking the two pieces of cardstock down to my cutting mat and then running pieces of paper, ribbon and in this case a heart shaped doily across the two. I then add embellishments and anything else I want until I am happy that they sit together nicely and then finally slice through the middle to get my two pages.
Reasons to be cheerful:
1. Baby Girls.
2. Online friendships that transfer into real ones.
3. Purple scrapping (it happens to be my favourite colour too).
