Ten Pin Patches

I do like colour blocking as a background and as a page design so my 2nd page was based on that. Some of the papers are retired but the stripe and spot are from the Pretty Petals DSP stack. I love these stacks as the 6X6 stacks as you can use them easily on scrapbook pages, they are all colour coordinated and there are lots of basic patterns as well as the fancy patterns.


I printed off a silhouette of the children bowling and then cut it out on Basic Black card. I also added a zig zag stitch detail to “join” the paper panels. This is a great way to use up scraps of paper too.

Cottage Scraps

I had to prep for a class lately and greatly OVER prepared as lots of people cancelled at the last minute so had lots of leftover squares of DSP ( patterned paper). So I had a play to figure out how to use them up. I love to use up my scraps!


Quick and easy in design and so open to adaption. I added the stamped, matted Sentiment panel and faux stitching to the outer edge of each square. The stamp set is again Cottage Greetings, its so cute!


Last one is Notecard size and uses Tree from Sprinkles of Life.
