everything comes back to family…


i hope you’re all well – i’m in shock as we have actually seen sunshine and blue skies this week!

now you know i love hand stitching on layouts and this one is no exception.

here is the finished layout…


i have been eyeing up this cut file for some time and this was it:

i used the gorgeous new collection by Paige Taylor Evans called fancy free. it’s not quite available yet but you can pre order it from scrobby (i have quite a bit more coming my way HA!)

this is quite a simple layout, i used my silhouette cameo machine to do the background, take a peek at this previous blog post for the ‘how to’.

using matching embroidery floss i stitched in all the arrows, yes this takes quite some time but i love doing it and pop on a great tv show for company.


i created a cluster of papers and ephemera from the collection as a mat for my photograph…


i love the title of this page as for me it’s so true. no matter what else is going on in my life i can always celebrate with family or go to them for advice and support.

that really is as simple as that, i had a ton of fun making this and just adore this collection.

you can find me on instagram

and facebook

and pinterest

’til next time
