Laura Rumble – Bobby Knows All The Names

I’m so excited that Pretty My Page has some COAPA Cut Files for sale!  I’m a big fan of Virginia’s designs – especially those that are more masculine as they work great with photos of my nephews.  This train is AWESOME!

My nephew knew all of the Thomas engines names and was so familiar with the books that you couldn’t say a single word wrong when reading to him as he’d stop you and start again!  If we weren’t playing with trains we were reading about them.  I put so much effort in to learning their names but there were so many.  The look of disappointment on a two year olds face when you call Edward Gordon is a look that stays with you for a long time.

Right less waffle and on to the layout.  I’ve backed the train with various papers from a Doodlebug 6×6 pad.  I choose yellows and oranges for the engine as blue and yellow were the two colours that stood out the most from the photos.  Orange is blue’s complimentary colour.

I added a little blue ink to the white background using the packaging technique.  I choose three bold alphas for my title and subtitle.  Despite what the photo tells you, that middle line of alphas is straight.  I triple checked after looking at the photos!

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
