Tree Love

blogged by me domestic goddess On 8/09/2010 06:08:00 PM
Today is my turn to blog over at Nikki Sivils. I played with her new collection Tree Love, which I am totally in love with!. The colours are just perfect for the photos I took of the girls in the fields, just before the farmer started Harvesting.
When Autumn/Fall arrives I will be scrapping with these papers all over again!

In the UK its a very busy time of the year for farmers, and living surrounded by farms we watch Harvest season with joy! I am a born and bred townie, living in the country for the past 5 years has been a life changing experience, and I am loving it! Love the slower pace, love the scenery, love that my girls wake up to fresh country air every morning, love that we have great walks on our doorstep for our new addition to our family, Suki our English Springer Spaniel.

With all this new scenary surrounding me, it makes for great photograph opportunities, which in turn make for great scrapbook layouts! When my box of product arrived from Nikki, and I eyespied "Tree Love" I was in heaven,a photoshoot was in order
This photo is of my eldest daughter, and I just knew the colours from Nikki Sivils new line would just be perfect. A simple layout of layers and carefully placed embellishments are all this layout needed. I am so happy that Nikki has introduced alphabet stickers to her new lines, I am an alphabet hoarder.
Nikki's fab diecut sheets are so versatile and I used my trusty scalloped punch to punch out the heart tree diecut on my layout.

Supplies : Nikki Sivils Tree Love papers, Nikki Sivils alphabet, Bazzill cardstock, Dear Lizzy ribbon, Tattered Angels shimmerz

I have used the same simple design for my layout, but have added a 1/4 sheet of the shaped paper and a felt strip. I love to add dimension to my pages, so most of the diecut shapes I have added will have some 3d love!

Have I told you how much I love the diecut sheets! I cut out this cute Beaver and the tree from the "Tree Love" diecut sheet.

Supplies : Nikki Sivils Tree Love papers, Nikki Sivils diecut sheet, Nikki Sivils stickers, Queen and Co felt border, Such Sweet Tierney button, twine

Check out this sketch I did for last months sketch challenge, to achieve a similar design. I have just chosen to make my paper strips much wider; the beauty of sketches!
I can see me using this product line over and over again, so much fun. Roll on Fall, or Autumn for my friends over the pond.

Time to head to my scraproom and pull out some Blueberry Hill for my Lavender Field photos!
Do pop on over Nikki Sivils blog and say Hi and check out all teh other isnpiring projects by the design team!
