...which are appearing a little bit later than usual, due to a flying stop in Canada by the box carrying my kits. As soon as it arrived, safely, right here in my hands, I did what I always do, which is carry it to the top room of the house (the one with the most expansive floor space) and then spread it all out from one wall to the other.
That way I get a quick idea of what looks nice with what, which colours are jumping out at me and the rest.
It's a bit like mopping a floor, though: I have to be careful not to paper myself into a corner. Imagine standing on any of it! Even if it's while wearing a specially soft handknitted sock. On the plus side, if anyone is looking for me, I can shout "Sorry! Can't come out now! I'm marooned in paper and I have to cut my way out."
The cutting this month has so far resulted in
a page called Inside Without a Cloud in the Sky about our dire summer weather
and this one
about filling an album with football stickers.
The alpha is by Fancy Pants Designs, the little birds are from Simple Stories, the chipboard pieces, Life Pages cards used as patterned paper and stamps are from the new, all exclusive Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit; and all of it can be found in the July selections at Gossamer Blue
