I completed this layout earlier in the month, and due to many factors just haven’t had a chance to sit down and type this post. So here I am today, with three BAS’s and a tonne of other deadlines looming typing this post about a layout that has definately been a labour of love.
I spent five days on this layout – creating the strawberries, leaves, stems, flowers and other fiddly elements.
I have used the October Sketch from the Scrapbooking Top 50 Blog, which I initially thought I would use for a clean and simple design – but the strawberries had other ideas.
I have used many different dies to create the strawberries, vines, leaves and flowers – from brands including Kaisercraft, Couture Creations and Sizzix. I have included a list of products I have used at the end of this post, and my sincere apologies for how long it is.
Now that I have shared my layout it is your turn to use the October Sketch from Scrapbooking Top 50 to make your own layout for the challenge:
