Hi everyone, it’s Melissa here and today I’m sharing a layout that I created with the stunning ‘These Days’ collection. My assignment brief was to focus on puffy hearts and puffy stickers.  As we’re currently in lockdown again here in New Zealand I decided to scrapbook some photos from our lockdown in 2020 showing three of the kids doing their online remote learning.

I knew that I wanted to use some of the frames from ‘Wall of Fame’ and I fussy cut three of them.  I cut out the centres of them and put my photos inside.

I was very keen to use the beautiful woodgrain of ‘Pretty Posies’ and tore pieces of ‘Home Grown’ and ‘Take Flight’.  Normally I would use Take Flight for fussy cutting, but I love having a large piece of it on my page.   I hand stitched in matching embroidery thread from my stash.


I used the ‘Mini Puffy Alphas’ for my title and the ‘Puffy Stickers’ for embellishing the frames, either side of my title and on the strings holding the frames.  The puffy stickers are so adorable!!

I used the ‘Puffy Hearts’ as feature embellishments on the strings holding frames, and I love how they add a touch of bling.

I added tails onto each frame with beautiful black and white leaves from the ‘Foral Ephemera’.  They were the perfect finishing touch.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my layout.  I don’t have a video this time as things have been very hectic in lockdown trying to balance work and parenting.


Take care

Melissa xx
