Something From Almost Nothing..This Week

A couple more pages from my Something From Almost Nothing album for today. They started life as one sheet of Jillibean-soup paper printed with trees in the bottom left hand corner. I cut it in half for my 6x12 and that gave me one page of Kraft and one page with trees on (which was good news and bad. Good because I had two different looks; bad because I had actually only used up one sheet of paper). Moving on, I kept the plain side for using up a sheet of stickers on this page:




and I used the tree side for this page:


which allowed me to turn some of my flower collection into the top of the tree. I added some stitching for more texture and a felt owl because I've been putting a bird on each page in this album. It's just a bit of fun, this one. And, yes, I did give in and buy a 6x12 album and page protectors. (If you are in the UK I got mine from Sarah's Cards.). But now I'm going to spend the rest of the afternoon experimenting with dividing the protectors into interesting shapes. Happy Sunday, everyone!

i LOVE them both! The tree is inspired.. might have to lift that idea if you don't mind! ;o)

I'll be very interested to see what you do with your page protectors.. and I'm loving your 6x12 format, it's a great size to work with.

I really like this size LO Sian, they both look fab. But I really must resist any more stash. Where did you get the little felt owl from....love him!

Sandra said...

I'm just loving your layouts - that tree is just amazing.

Lizzie said...

WOW! That is such a cool idea for the tree. I love it to bits (well, not literally, but you know what I mean...).
The photo of the Small One under the Lampost is pretty cool too!
I am getting very tempted by 6" x 12" format for layouts - seems to inspire a different type of layout.
Really lovely pages Sian!
