March at Gotta Craft

Today I have my March Gotta Craft pages to show you. Sandra has put together a truly lovely kit based around the new For The Record papers by Echo Park and they are gorgeous. Richly printed, double sided and ready for Spring. This is what I made:

For this one I cut the roses from one sheet of paper and put them back together again to embellish a page about a trip I made to a rose garden with my Auntie Rose. I used a sticker from the add-on sticker sheet as my title because it matched the colour and font of the sign in the photo.


This one shows a photo of some back copies of a family magazine I created when I was about nine. As soon as I saw the typewriter sticker and the yellow and black papers, this is the story I wanted to tell


And this one is about a little girl who didn't get to the beach very often, but made the most of it when she did.


And I've still got some bits and pieces left. There may be more to come..

I think Sandra has a couple of kits here and the individual papers are here. I can recommend the sticker sheet -it's packed!

Have a nice Sunday, whatever you are up to! I'm off to a birthday party. With ice cream.

Love the little bit of whimsy in all these pages! And as always the stories to accompany them.

Wonderful work, Sian. All three are eye-catching.

Beautiful pages Sian - I always admire your layering technique.

I love all three layouts. The stitching and title on the first one are just wonderful. The design of the second is my favorite of the three--I love everything about it. The black and yellow are great together. I just ordered (& received) a pack of this paper and was annoyed with myself for ordering two of the sticker sheets by mistake. Now I think I'm glad I did!

Beautiful! I love them all but the top one is my favorite.
I'm actually off to do some scrapbooking today with friends.

Mmmm, ice-cream! I'm hoping there wasn't snow with that ... That sticker is perfect for your top LO, isn't it, and what careful cutting out of those roses ... I love the design of your second page - what a resourceful dad to find a family crest! I can remember trips to the seaside with jumpers, cold wet feet and egg-filled bridge rolls tasting of sea, salt and sand. It wasn't until my 20s that I ever got to a beach warm enough to sunbathe on!

Jennifer said...

Oooh, you have been busy!!! Loving the fancy cutting of the roses and perfect use of that typewriter embellishment. I can't wait to get my hands on this line!!!! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Melissa said...

Great layouts. I really like that you cut the roses out and used them to accent the photos. That typewriter stickers reminds me of the typewriter I learned to on!

Lizzie said...

I love the roses, all framing the two photos on your page; also how you lined up the photos to give the whole view of the garden - with you in two places at once!

The Gazetteer page is cool! I used to make "books" and "magazines" at home also - my mum, grandma and sister would read them, though I don't suppose they would have appealed to anyone else!

You were certainly busy today - three scrap pages in one day. And those papers are gorgeous - especially the yellow paper you have used on the final layout. I like the folded paper flower you made for that page too.

Micayla said...

h my gosh Sian, you really worked that kit. Love, love, love the last page, so darling. I want to scrap now!

Becky said...

They are all lovely layouts, but the last one is my favourite :)

Sandra said...

It would be too hard a choice to pick my favourite of yours, I so enjoy seeing those hand cut roses, amazing!

Ginger said...

I love the cut out roses, they jump off the page. I wonder what flavour of ice cream the little girl would want (or rather, big girl) :)

Sue, a.k.a. midwestgirl said...

Lovely layouts, all three. I've got some of that Echo Park paper and it's calling to me. Love the page about your magazine. Our son put out a sports magazine when he was younger, so that brought back fun memories.

Lisa said...

great layouts - I treated myself to the collection and it's great to see what you have done with it - they look fab!

Scrappi Sandi said...

I love this new line & you've certainly done them proud!! Love 'em all but the top one is my favourite!!

Curlywiggles said...

Loving this more simple style!

Louise said...

these are lovely Sian. The colour combo on each of them is fab. I like the subtle stitching details in the first one too.

Sandie said...

I love the way you have used the papers, specially cutting out the roses and adding them as a border.
I bought For the Record set recently. Just gorgous papers & stickers! Look forward to seeing more pages you do.

Clair said...

Love the variety here - someone's been busy cutting out very patiently. It's paid off though - they're all lovely!

humel said...

My kit arrived today - complete with add-on stickers! Can't wait to get playing, your layouts are all very lovely and inspiring xx

Maya said...
