More Perfect Collection Page Starters...

Remember last year I posted about the Shimelle Perfect Collection class I took? I have been working on making another batch of page starters using her method.

Those of you who have been to the retreats might remember that we had some lovely MME Lost & Found 12x12 pads which included three each of 18 different papers from the individual collections within the Lost and Found range. I have always loved Lost & Found Union Square and so I removed one of each paper from the Union Square pad and worked with that at a collection pack. So far I have made 6 or 7 page starters and I still have lots of paper left!

I like having a stack of these as a go to when I know I have only a short amount of time to spare as it is a case of adding the photo (I have already selected a few possibles which will work with this collection) adding embellishments, journaling and a title.

Watch out for the completed layouts coming soon!

Tomorrow we are off to Stitches (Craft Hobby & Stitch International trade show) the UKs trade show for crafts. We placed the vast majority of our orders direct for CHA product and some of it is already coming through but it is nice to go and see what else is on offer and to see product in real life - there are sometimes surprises when things which were just "meh!" on the previews turn out to be much nicer than you thought!

MY version of Debbies LO from last weeks Eclectic Keepsakes is coming soon!
