Claire Murphy – Magical 2018

Hi friends, it’s Claire here with you today.

I have never scrapped a year in review sort of layout but this 12 section cut file inspired me to do just that. I had many ideas as to what I could do with this cut file and initially I was going to back each section with my photo.
Then I changed my mind and was going to back fill with some pretty patterned paper. And I finally settled on the idea of repeat stamping the month into each section. This helped identify the month of each photo.

Naturally I kept it chronological and had little 2×2 inch photos in a clockwise direction around the cut file. I used some foam adhesive under the cut file to give some shadow and dimension underneath. I then backed each photo with the same patterned paper and used some foam underneath half of each photo so it was at the same height as the cut file.

Next I set about adding in chipboard, ephemera and enamel dots and I just couldn’t stop myself! I love how crazy busy this one is and just kept adding more and more until the page was almost full.

Finally, the centre spot was perfect for the title placement.  You can see the layout come together here.

With love and colour

COVID 19 UPDATE – Unfortunately I am currently unable to process any further physical cut file orders for at least the next 2 weeks.  The logistics of dealing with the new and necessary restrictions, while also homeschooling my children and caring for my Dad, mean that it is becoming more and more difficult and the restrictions may even become tighter as we seek to control this awful situation.  Obviously I’m keeping a close watch on the news so that I can start processing and posting again as soon as possible.  You can still browse and order but they will not go out in the post until there is a further update.

Digital orders can still be purchased and instantly downloaded as normal and remain unaffected by the restrictions.  However, there is a slight glitch on the website that means some devices are duplicating items as they are added to the basket.  You can remove them in the final screen and I can obviously organise speedy refunds for any that slip through the net.

Thank you so much for your continued support for Pretty My Page.  Every order and message is so important to me but even more so now.  Wishing you all health and happiness x
