Ice Cream

Hi again,

I hope everyone's been enjoying some sunshine this week. It's so good for the soul!

Here's my latest page for Scrap Everything! Like last week, I'm using the new Pickled Pear collection from KaiserCraft. I adore this range - it can be used for so many themes and I find the layouts come together quickly when the paper designs and embellishments co-ordinate in such a gorgeous way.

My layout this week is very different from last week's one. Here it is:

This layout came together really easily. I used Dylusions Ink Spray to make the chocolate ice cream dribbles and the first six words of the title are from the Pickled Pear sticker sheet. It was these words that gave me the idea for the layout. I wanted the words to be "mounted" on something so I cut a couple of strips of the background paper from behind the photos, flipped them over to show the other side and placed them under some of the title. The only tricky bit on the whole page was convincing the baker's twine to stay put! A little bit of Glossy Accents works wonders.

Here's a detail:

My son was only two when these pics were taken. Awww, he was so cute!

This is one of my favourite layouts that I've done lately. I really like the simplicity of the page but it's still interesting and tells a great story. I guess there's a heavy touch of nostalgia too as these photos were taken 13 years ago!

Wishing you all many more ice-creams this summer!



  1. I have to agree - LOVE how you've used Dylusions. It's my all-time fave inks...I just bought more on the weekend!!! And that twine is a-mazing...looks perfect. Must remember Glossy Accents. I usually use gel medium which gets EVERYWHERE! Love the little umbrella poking out on the edge of the paper too....& WEIRD....only 1/2 from Labuan Square, eh? I used to shop at Corio Village & go to Aerobics at the aquatic centre out there all the time in the 80's...were you there???!!!!!!

  2. Thanks for the hint with the twine, it can be so difficult to make stay in place, I normally use Helmar 450 Quick Drying but its a bit stringy so may have to try Glossy Accents. A really beautiful job on this page.

  3. Look, pretty much here!
    great trabalhos.Love:)

  4. Love the "melting ice cream". Fun and creative elements!

  5. What a gloriously fun page!!! Love the ice-cream drips! Totally fantastic!!!!!!!!!

  6. HI Heather, this is another lovely layout using these papers, I love the twine effect, and the drips really do look like the drips a child gets down their arms when they eat ice cream!! and precious memories too!

  7. Now that is what I call one drippy ice cream, straight on to the Lovely page and I like how you worked the twine.

  8. Lol! This is so precious Heather! Beautiful layout. :)

  9. awww such sweet memories for you :). Love how effective the twine looks! Fabulous page!!
