Hello Darling | Scrappy Canary

Hello Everyone, 
Theres a new sketch up on the Scrappy Canary blog, so today I thought I would share my layout
What an awesome sketch to interpret in any way you see fit!

I had the honour of watching Manda create the layout she shared HERE while we were at Scrap Camp recently. I loved it, wanted to scrap lift it completely, but thought I should probably design something a little different. 

Heres a reminder of the sketch

What an awesome sketch to interpret in any way you see fit!

This is what I came up with 

I loved the idea of a pieced grid of papers for the base. 
But rather than using the squares in the sketch, I changed them up for rectangles. 
I even turned the centre square into a rectangle by joining the photo and title card together

After working out the best placement of colours and patterns I sewed all the pieces down using mums trusty sewing machine. 

Ive then added minimal embellishing with stickers from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection and last months embellishment kit. 

I had to dip into my stash for this layout while waiting on the newest Canary kits to arrive. 
If you haven't already noticed, Manda has started to stock new collections in the store. YAHOO
This means If you run out of Scrappy Canary kits to use theres plenty of other options to play with if you can't wait for the next :) Don't forget to use the code MICHELLE10 to get 10% off any purchases

Thanks for stopping by, make sure you share your layouts with us this month over on the Canary blog
Happy Scrapping
