Home Sweet Home | Fancy Friday Aug 2015

This month's fancy friday blog hop has a theme of "what inspires you?"

Does it surprise you that I am often inspired by product?
That seems to be more true lately.
But it truly can be anything.
It can be a photo.
It can be a story of a moment.
Often, I will journal ahead of time before I gather any product.
Other times its colors.
The truth is that fashion and clothing runs through my brain as well.

But for today's post, it continues to be the new Stampin' Up! Project Life kits!

I started to play around with the 2x2 cards in the Happy Times Project Life kit on a traditional scrapbook page.  I played around and then added photos.

After adding some 2x2 photos that I printed in black and white on my Canon Selphy, I realized that the large wood veneer would would wonderfully in the centre of my layout.

However, I still wasn't happy until I added grid lines by machine stitching with white thread around the squares.

You'll notice I also left some empty spaces where I planned to add the accessories.

Finally, I framed the whole layout with one of the Bohemian Designer Series 12x12 papers.

I truly had fun just moving the squares around.
Whats inspiring you lately?
Make sure to hop to Cindy to see what she was inspired by this month!


  1. What a gorgeous all the 2x2's! That wood veneer is wonderful.

    1. Thanks Amy!! I love the wood veneer and wanted to hoard it... Maybe I bought another one...

  2. Lovely layout! The stitching really adds to it. I don't sew, but I may have to learn. ;-)
