Week 11

DSC_0020It’s quarter to seven and here’s week eleven! (well it’s not really its close to midnight but I am sure it’s quarter to seven somewhere in the world.

Aaah week eleven, it’s been done for a while and I am so glad to be able to share it with you now that it’s also up on Becky’s blog. I’ll admit it’s still surreal that I am part of the Becky Higgins CT and I get nervous with each monthly inspiration post but, so far so good. I love looking at everyone else’s post on there and then snooping round on their blogs so many different styles to adore.



The left side of the week looks like this.

I must say I am really happy with how this week turned out. It just feels right. Love the natural colours contrasting so nicely with whites. The filler card is a Studio AE (Ali Edwards) stamp on a Becky Higgins Seafoam filler card. A perfect marriage right?  I get the stamps from Technique Tuesday and I will say that Ali just keeps rocking those and I look forward to receiving my monthly package from the US. I was so thrilled when I realised the Studio Calico square brackets from their February subscription kit were the perfect size for this stamp.  What else… hmmm the words “captured” in the top right are in fact a vellum cut that was in the March Mini kit from my Polkadot Creative. Again the silhouette cut made by the wonderful Sarah from Documenting Chaos.  I am still deciding whether or not I like or LOVE vellum. My biggest issue is how to attach it without it not looking as good as it does here. (I cheated and just inserted it into the pocket for the photo until I find the right vellum attachment solution)

DSC_0024I thought I’d do a close up of this “Happy Sad” card. Love popping on those little paperclips to make it look more “real”. This little moment is so close to my heart and takes me back to my childhood when I used to climb on benches to get up to things. (ehm…. all good of course)

PetraCorcoranAprilRHSHere is the right side. looking at this page just makes me smile. April talking on the phone, Calvin and his “dry” hair & the stop watch. Love that old stop watch. Love that you have to wind it up for it to work. No buttons no beeps. Simple and gorgeous.DSC_0028

A close up of a sweet little note from April to me in her school diary. I keep flipping back to this one when signing her diary. She knows just how to melt my heart. Its small but definitely there.

DSC_0025Thought I’d add a bit of a different view of the left side again. Just for fun.

Finally here you will see the full layout.

PetraCorcoranAprilThat’s it I’m done for another week.

    I’m loving the use of more neutral colours on PL laps lately. Looks like you might too. I just find it helps those photos pop. Using lighter colours is also less distracting than dark. Maybe that’s why the vellum is so effective?
    Love it 🙂

    • Hi Sandra,
      Yeah I find isolating any colour tones it all down and takes away some of the noise however, I am a huge fan of neutrals/naturals.
      Aaah Vellum…. if I can use it successfully then yes it is great.
      Thanks For Dropping In

  5. Great pages! How do you get those perfect white borders on all of your photos??

    • Hi Sara,
      It’s all done digitally. I add the borders before I print the photos. Glad you like my pages.
      Thanks For Dropping In

      • If you ever do tutorials, I would love to see how you do this. I think I could figure out how to add a border, but not how to get the corners rounded perfectly.

  6. Great seeing your pages Petra. Like the daily little events that are part of this age too.

    • Hi,
      Yeah I for one can’t get enough of them. No matter how simple or mundane.
      Thanks For Dropping In

    Love the colours of your week. That photo of the lemons and limes makes my mouth water 😉 Great job honey. xxx

    • Hi Jodie,
      Thanks. Yes I love those colours too. I’m thinking Mojitos? 😛
