Crop In The Country – #sweet

I’m back today with the second layout that I created for the Crop In The Country retreat, using the Photoplay Free Bird collection.

I like to create an easy to use cut file for the guests that enables them to use up their scraps. This one was 6 inches wide so it was attached to a scrap piece of 12×12 in the middle and flipped back to expose the apertures in the cut file. Once the scraps are adhered behind the exposed holes, the backing can be flipped back and adhered over the pieces. This gives you a plain backing sheet which reinforces and strengthens the layout and creates a smooth finish on the back so it doesn’t get caught up when you slide it in the page protector.

This collection has a few different colours and patterns in it but we couldn’t get all the papers that I initially wanted to use. This meant that some of the colours in the sticker sheet didn’t match the colours in the papers so I had to make sure that I used all of the blue stickers on one layout to make them look intentional.

The colours are so generic that they work well with a range of different subjects but with lots of greens and browns they work really well with outdoor photos in particular. It was serendipitous that my children were wearing orange and yellow in this photos of us walking my nieces wonderful staffy on the beach.

In addition to the folded flower cut file, I popped a few of the elements up onto foam for more dimension. I’m using a LOT of foam stickers from the children’s old craft supplies at the moment!

Stop by again soon for my third and final accidental layout for this west country retreat.

Happy scrapping!

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
