Love you ~The Scrap Cake~

Hi there!
It`s been some time since my last post.... I didn`t have time to scrap lately but I`m back to "business" ;-) and today I have a shaped layout to share with you.

We have a Patchwork Week at The Scrap Cake blog and we (the girls from the current DT) create layouts inspired by patchwork. I`ll be simply honest :-) and share with you that this is my first time I`m creating something like this.
I mixed two gorgeous collections from The Scrap Cake - "Cozy Xmas" and "The Bright Side of Life".
  • I used as a background a sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock (in the color matching my pattern papers).
  • I punched 25 squares using a 3" punch.
  • I adhered them with glue.
  • I used a big plate to draw a circle and then I cut it out.

  • I did lots of hand-stitching - I know it`s time consuming but I love it and this is one of my signatures on my work :-)

Did you hear The Scrap Cake has New Release Giveaway?
You still have time till the end of this month.

I hope you enjoyed my post today and if you want to check what the other girls created please check the The Scrap Cake Blog.

Have an awesome day!
