Good Times.

At last I have chance to share a layout with you that I created at last weekends crop!
This is actually the first page I started that weekend and it seems fitting that it's the first one that I get to share with you!
It was based on a Make It Monday sketch over at The Memory Nest.

Here is the Make It Monday sketch #33.

Here is my take on the sketch using the very last of a Pink Paisley line that I was determined to use up and if you could see the back you would see that I gutted the middle of the background paper so that I could turn it over and use the other side!! 
The photo is of my eldest daughter with her college pal gals down the pub!

These flowers and leaves were an assortment of punched, fussy cut and die-cut scraps! 

I do love the gold lettering that is so trendy at the moment, but as I am a frugal scrapper I die-cut mine from two different Sizzix die's!

These little circles are just punched from that gutted background paper and a splodge of gold 3D paint added to the middle.

Well there we are at last a layout that was made a week ago posted!
I hope I get chance tomorrow to post another. 
Thanks for stopping by, you know I love to see you!!!


  1. Lovely page Kerry. Great fussy cutting as always. I often gut my papers too, it's the perfect way to get a coordinating pattern for free.

  2. Such a beautiful page. I love the colour combination and how you've embellished the page. Those two corner clusters are just perfect. Thanks for playing at The Memory Nest.

  3. Ahhh... another master piece by Kerry! I appreciate how you share your techniques - Thank you! I think your title should be Fussy Cutting Queen! This is fabulous Kerry!

  4. Kerry - LOVE your take on the sketch! Such pretty papers! I love that line and you used it beautifully!!! I always gut my paper to get the most use out of it. Thanks for your kind comments on your blog. I would love to see you use a sketch for three different layouts - one for each of your daughters!!!

  5. "Paper gutting!!" I do it all the time - and never knew there was a term for it!!!! I LOVE it!! and I also LOVE your layout and take on the sketch!! The gold letters work perfectly and the colors and patterns are making me drool! LOVE it all! Thanks for playing along at tMN!!

    1. P.S. - I LOVE the name of your blog! I named my blog "For the Love of Paper" - :-) Can NEVER have too much paper :-)

  6. Glad you showed the close ups of the corners, so nice! And nice colors here too...thanks for joining in and sharing it at the MEMORY NEST!
