Week 15

DSC_0266I hope you’re keen on seeing week fifteen!

Week fifteen is a little different to my usual weeks. Most noticeably because it is back to basics. For this months Creative Team post we were set a challenge. “Just use a kit, photos and a pen” for your layout. This really was a challenge for me as I do rely quite heavily on my digital elements but I was up for it.

Straight up you get to see my scrawl on this title card. I thought and thought about it but in the end decided it had to be simple. I picked out this gorgeous colour form the becky Higgins Seafoam kit and went with it.


Left side of the week right here. The centre photo of the series at the bottom of this page is actually stuck on top of the page protector.  I just wanted to capture the succession of her faces and since I don’t have digital at hand had to try and think outside the box a little. PetraCorcoranMay_Week15_Right

Now the right hand side. Sticking with the same colour pictures went in, journalling went in and that’s it. Done. Ok, I did cheat a little but there was no mention of not bring able to use basics like scissors 🙂 so, I took the liberty of cutting out some of the journal card circles and sticking them on top of pictures. Please do excuse my handwriting but enough of that.

DSC_0261Anther view just for interest. Week 15Finally the full layout. So was it quicker this week? Yes. Was it easier? Yes… but did I enjoy it as much…. hmmm…. well, I did try stay true to my “style” which I do think I achieved but I must say I really enjoy making my little week cards and mixing the digi and physical elements together.  I love sticking bits and pieces on my layouts.

Will I go back and redo this layout and add more? No. I never redo, I never go back. It’s done and I’m moving on. It was a great challenge and I know I can go back to basics if I ever decide I need to  🙂 Hope you found at least a little inspiration here this week.

  1. Wow Petra you really should use your hand writing more. It gives your page a real something. Yes it isn’t an “Ali hand” but really whose is? There is MUCH worse out there. It is yours and I love it! Great pages again

    • Hi Michelle,
      Aaaw you are so lovely. Thank you so much. xx

  2. I absolutely love this Petra and I love that you challenged yourself to try something new or old again, haha. I think we always walk away with something that we learnt that we then take on in our next weeks layout. Might have to give this challenge a go, maybe one day haha! Are you growing herbs? Awesome week!

    • Hi Kellie,
      Yes it was a challenge and I must say I was rather nervous about it. Mainly about keeping it true to my kind of style I think.
      Kellie we are growing all sorts of things but the real focus is hubby’s on growing chillies. I think he has at least a dozen varieties going!

    You have inspired me (and many others around here) to give this a go. I love the simplicity of it and look forward to ‘getting back to basics’. Simply awesome! xxx

    • I have now seen your version and you have hit the nail on the head. Fantastic effort and well done for trying the challenge. Next time you are short on time you know it can be done.
