I'm in love with My Mind's Eye generally but the 'Cut & Paste' range which has four collections within in it is absolutely awesome. This week I have some papers from the 'Adorbs' collection. The colours are sort of pastel but also nice and bright so a slightly strange mix there but I love it, the pastels coupled with the bright pink and navy blue just works so beautifully. In this month's kit we have four of the 'Adorbs' papers together with a roll of coordinating washi tape and a 6x4 journaling card.
I love the subject matter of my first layout - Sophie is obsessed with dollies and pushchairs and whilst on a recent holiday in Lanzarote there happened to be a little pink pushchair in the villa we were staying in - perfect. However she didn't take her dollies for a walk in it, instead she found some brightly coloured plastic cutlery in one of the kitchen drawers which she kept playing with, and took that for a walk instead! I used the floral paper as my background and stretched the journaling card across the layout by cutting it in half and tucking the two halves behind each side of the photos. I had navy washi tape in my kit and have used that in various places across the layout.
My second layout uses the brighter papers. I've made a journaling card but layering two patterned papers (and cutting the first into a flag shape). I've added strips down the join in the two papers that form the background as well as my washi tape.
and here is Kirei's layout using these supplies, check out her blog for more details on how she made it.
