FRIDAY FAVOURITES: Anna Allan; On Your Bike...

Hello APOCD friends.
It's been a little while since I've been on here so am very pleased to be back to share a layout with you all that I have created using the April Main Cake Kit.

I love anything Crate Paper, so this kit was right up my alley.
I love how the cut-apart paper gives you a nice little pile of ephemera when you cut it up because I love those extra little bits that just complete the page. I've used two of the pieces on this layout - one 3x4 quote card and another 1x4" strip that says Let's Go!

I have used two of the patterned papers to create the background panels.
I just love the colourings in this kit - the blacks, teals, aqua, pink, gold...all my faves.

When choosing the photo/s, I came across these different shots of my little girl riding her bike.
I don't usually use multiple photos on a layout - well, I have before...but it's a rarity.
On this page, I have different sizing and orientations of my photos and I love how it turned out. I enjoy the fact that I have all three of the photos on the page that depict the moments cuteness and achievement in one go!

Have you been creating with your APOCD kit?
We'd love to see you share your creations over on the APOCD Cafe Facebook Group so be sure to join up and get involved with all things A Piece of Cake Designs!

Thanks for dropping by!
Anna :-)

Messy Monday with Natalie - CRAZY

 It was time to get a little inky & stampy for this page.

Using this one sheet of paper from the Feb Main kit - I cut out all the individual elements and layered them over my background.

This paper is divine and the perfect combination of color and pattern for this page!

I then used the Craft Market Thickers to create my title!

Super easy & Super fun!

Friday Favourites with Natalie - HAPPY

Some time ago there was a girls weekend away ..... a scrappy, laughter filled, fun weekend with some amazing people...... I long to do it again ....  I think we need to find the time ...... make some calls and book it in ... looking at these fun, silly photos from that weekend just makes me crave their company more and more ... This makes me Happy ....

For this page I used a couple of papers from the Feb Main kit..... The Vellum is FABULOUS!  It makes a great background.

I then cut up all the elements from the Craft Market' - Project Glittered Double Sided Specialty Paper and ties on the multi coloured twine to each of the tags.
From my stash, I used some metallic gold card to mat the photos roughly and to add more shimmer and shine!

 Are you missing some of the favourite people in your life?
Do you scrap them to help preserve the memories?

Thoughtful Thursday with Natalie - HELLO LOVE


Good morning

I'm feeling sentimental today & sharing a soppy lovey page I created of Jessica and Trevor.
Every now and again I like to create an A4 page - just to mix it up a bit and try something a little different.

I used papers from the Feb main kit as well as a few bits from the ephemera pack and focused the whole page around the Hello Love digi cut from the Feb release!

Some messy sewing and cotton, adds in some more white elements to the page as well as acting as a border to frame the layout!

Thanks for stopping by
Have a great day

Digi Store Saturday with Natalie - AWESOME

Hi there

Today I'm sharing a page that I created using the digi cut that was left over after I created this layout!

Waste not ... want not!

This collage of photos of Jessica and her BFF Lillian is nothing short of awesome and this title was right on the money!

I love this set created by Polka Dot Creative!

I used the papers from the Feb Main kit and added a little ink and lead pencil to grunge it up a little!

 I hope you are all having a great day!
