A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Clear the desk #2


I had a short break from scrapping as I was really enjoying crocheting Arizona but I did do some layouts for the second prompt for Clear your desk, the online class by Shimelle.

I struggled a bit more to find a batch of papers to use for this one as the bold floral that I wanted to use was tricky to match up with anything else that I had. With that in mind, I’m quite happy with how the layouts turned out.

I picked photos from our 2008 trip to Disney World as I still have loads to use from there and as we went for the Flower festival, the photos seemed a good match for the papers. Love that doily by Basic Grey. I’ve wanted to use that on something for years!

The first one is a Photopass magic shot. That patterned paper is old Junkitz.This one is one of my favourite photos from that year. We were walking along and the little cart came up behind us. As I swung my camera up to take a quick snap, they stopped and posed for me. There were lots of lovely sculptures at the festival and I particularly liked this one. I finally got to use that really bold floral on this layout along with some old stitchy rub ons. Finally for this batch is my favourite with these papers. More of that pretty doily and I even got to use some really old chipboard letters.

I’ve been scrapping more Disney 2017 photos lately, using the Magical Scrapbook prompts by Shimelle. I must get back to clear the desk at some point but I’m on a mission to finish 2017 first.

  1. I love seeing your wonderful pages from your Disney trip. All are so beautiful. I have actually been in my craft room scrapbooking the last couple of days, too. Feels good to get some of my millions of photos on pages. I am running out of room for albums though. Eek!


    • Thank you 🙂
      I’m running out of space too. I’ll need another unit for them soon. It feels good to get those memories in the albums though, doesn’t it.


  2. You’re going to catch up! Almost makes me want to try, but I won’t give up my fabric drawers!!
