me, my man and my first ever 12 x 12 layout!!

Here is my first attempt of a 12 x 12 layout. I was originally going to scrap a cute picture of the kids when I spotted this rare picture of me and Matt together. I'm usually the one behind the camera so we just don't get many of us together. I'm also feeling quite loved up at the moment, what with all this wedding planning, so I decided to go with this one. I drew and cut out the vine from core-dinations card and just gradually built up layers of papers and flowers (did you notice my pinwheel flowers inspired by the lovely Deb at Sparkling Scrapbooks?). I wanted it to have lots of points of interest, so I hope I haven't gone too mad with decor!! I need to buy stamps and ink as that is something I do not own as yet and I know that this is something that everybody else can't live without so I need to go shopping...again!!! On a different note, I am going to knebworth to see Metallica perform (and many other bands) in less than 2 weeks. I've just recieved the tickets and I've applied online to try to win a meet and greet, fingers crossed for me everyone please!! Jane xx


  1. Hi Jane. Wow, what a brilliant first 12x12 layout. Well done. I love the way you've done your title and the colours are lovely. It's true we get so few photos with our other halves, or even with us in the photo. I know I too am the one always behind the camera.
    Can't wait to see what else you come up with. Happy shopping.


  2. Wow, your first 12x12 and you did a wonderful job!

    Hope you do more 12x12's---you are a pro!

  3. Good Evening Little Miss Crafty, you are a natural, this LO is amazing, I cant wait to see it [you'd better bring it to our craft evening this week]:D
    Everytime i look at it i notice something different - and the picture of you and Matt is so cute.
    I cant wait to see somemore Layouts.
    nite nite - Ju xx

  4. Hi Jane! omg, this lo is so pretty, I can't believe it's your first 12 X 12! very awesome! How fun planning your wedding too! I wish you ALL the best! And Metallica, lucky girl, wish I was going with you!!!!! Crossing my fingers for you to win that meet & greet, I need to live vicariously through you! lol xxo

  5. Oh Jane its so pretty! I cant believe you have just started scrapooking! I remember doing my first page, i sat all night watching create and craft on tv while making this one page - it was no where near as good as yours!! :)


  6. Wow! Is this seriously your first ever 12x12? It totally rocks! That pic is so sweet and your LO is amazing - I love the decor you've added! Wish I had more pics of me and my significant other - I'm usually the one behind the camera(mainly due to his poor photography skills but don't tell him I said that LOL!)

  7. Hi Jane, just wanted to say thank you for your kind comments on my blog. Wow, considering your a newbie, your layouts are lovely. I do not do scrapbooking myself but I certainly appreciate a really nice layout. You are obviously a very busy lady with your two little ones but you also have a really good eye. Well done.

  8. Gosh Jane, I'm lovin' your blog design - the owls are such cuties!

    I'm always very envious of those who can pull a great scrapbook page together (r u sure it's your first time?) - it's far too daunting for me to even attempt!

    Great work with the new blog & can't wait to see what you come up with next,

    Hugs, Steph xxx

    p.s. I have my fingers crossed for you :)

  9. Oooh Jane - I missed this one sorry - It's beautiful. I love all the layers and the flowers - amazing page and it's your first one!
