Twinkle in my eye - layout for 49 and Market

Hi there once more 49 and Market friends and welcome to another blog post. Today I would like to share another layout using the stunning “Bold and Beautiful” collection, I am seriously in love with the matching Laser Cuts as well as the beautifully designed papers, can’t get enough.

"Twinkle In My Eye" by Hetty Hall
I started my layout by picking my background piece which is the reverse of the front page. I then added a lot of postage stamps from the Laser Cut sheet in a random fashion and adhered them with some hot glue. Again from the Laser Cut sheet I added some postcards by layering them behind my photo creating a photo mat. Next I embossed some Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces in white embossing powder and placed them on my layout. On top of that I added my photo and attached it with some cardboard for added dimension.

The Laser Cut flowers and leaves were then arranged around the photo and attached with some foam dots as again I like the height and dimension. Next I added a mixture of gorgeous new flowers with some hot glue. Last but not least I used a whole pack of the Wishing Bubbles to arrange around my photo and in between the flower layers, they are my new favourite 49 and Market embellishment for sure.

Treasure layout designed for 49 and Market

Hi there 49 and Market fans, welcome back to the blog where I would like to share with you this layout titled ‘Treasure’ using some of the gorgeous brand new 49 and Market flowers.

"Treasure" by Hetty Hall

As well as the new flowers, I have used the “Vintage Remnants” Laser Cuts. I layered some of these elements behind my photo to add height and dimension, separating each layer using some dimensional tape. This also creates ‘pockets’ so I was able to add a variety of my flowers in different heights to create more visual interest.

I didn’t add any mixed media to my background paper as the print is gorgeous as is and I didn’t want to cover any of it up. However I added the ‘mesh’ from the Laser Cuts to create some texture. The laser cuts make it so easy to put together a great looking layout and this design took no time at all.

Treasure - layout for 49 and Market

Hi there friends and thank you for letting me share another layout with you today.
I titled my layout ‘Treasure’ as I thought it suited the photo well and embossed it in gold. I generally don’t add anything to my background paper as I am a pretty ‘clean’ scrapper to start with but also because Janene’s designs are so gorgeous and detailed to start with I hate covering up all the beautiful elements already printed on the paper.

Treasure by Hetty Hall
So I started by matting my photo and for this. I actually used the backing card from a flower packet and roughly tore it to just a bit larger than my photo. Behind this I layered a small piece of burlap for added dimension and texture and last but not least I used a postcard from the laser cut sheet and inked the edges, layered it slightly to the left of the photo.  I adhered all this to the layout on a piece of cardboard.

I like to create all these heights and layers as it gives me room to add my embellishments in layers as well.
I used the flower pattern on the paper as my guide to add my flowers and laser cuts. To finish off I added some orange Prills to really bring out all the colours and layered my title on top of the embellishments with a bit of hot glue.

So there you have it, another layout finished using the gorgeous Bold and Beautiful collection and I really didn’t add to many elements but I think it looks pretty effective anyway.

'Just Smile, so special, so you' layout designed for 49 and Market

Good morning friends and welcome, so glad you could join me.

Today I would like to share with you a 'boy' layout using the ever so gorgeous 'Vintage Remnants' collection. It has got a very grunge but at the same time soft and sweet designs to it, perfect for all sorts of occasions.

Just Smile, so special, so you

I just love my flowers so I still add them to my boy layouts however to make it less feminine I usually use subtle colours and lots of other grunge elements like some corrugated cardboard and the gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard Cogs. I simply added some pewter embossing powder in a random fashion and it gave it this fantastic 'metal' look, so happy with how that turned out.

To balance all the darker colours I added some gorgeous white flowers among all the layers as well as some yellow burlap tucked in here and there. It creates some lovely highlights I think.

The other day I was also so pleased to find some preserved moss in a dollar store. Grabbed a few bags of it as I knew it would come in handy one day. I added some of this to this layout among the chipboard pieces and I just love the end result. Finished it off with my go to embellishment 'art stones'. Just love this stuff as well, it really finishes a layout perfectly by giving it that extra dimension.

Hope you like what I created here, hope I inspired you to get out your son's, grandson's or even brother and husband's photos and combine them with the beautiful 49 and Market Vintage Remnants Collection.

Until next time....

'Wonderful' layout designed for 49 and Market

Hi there friends and welcome back to my blog. I have been lucky enough to be able to create with the absolutely gorgeous new collection 'Bold and Beautiful', you really have to see this collection in real life to appreciate its beauty.


The designs on the papers are just so stunning and you really don't need to add too much to it other then try to enhance it with some matching embellishments.

That is what I tried to do here, work with the printed design and just add layers like these gorgeous Stargazer flowers and various Laser Cuts I had left over from other projects.

I also used some Dusty Attic Chipboard which I pretty much left as is except I added a tiny bit of Walnut distress ink to highlight.

I always like to create many layers for dimension by adding of cuts of cardboard, so easy and creates that gorgeous 3D effect.

Finished it of with some tiny accents like bits of lace, cheesecloth and art stones.

49 and Market Products I Used:

Bold and Beautiful -Writings on the Wall
SG-87209 Stargazers - Peach Sorbet
Stargazers – Peach Sorbet
RB-86325 Jute Cording - Single Ply
Jute Cording – Single Ply
RB-86332 Jute Cording - 5 Ply

There you have it, all finished, hope you like it.

Until next time.....

BeYOUtiful layout created for 49 and Market

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog. Today I am sharing a layout created for 49 and Market using their gorgeous new collections, Vintage Remnants and Bold and Beautiful.


"BeaYOUtiful" by Hetty Hall
I fussy cut some flower elements from the gorgeous Bold & Beautiful Paper Collection and layered them among the lace and chipboard around my photo. I inked all the edges to keep that vintage feel. The Dusty Attic Chipboard was distressed with some distress inks and waxes and I tried to keep that Dusty Rose color scheme.

To finish off I added some more distress ink to the pretty little mulberry flowers. As you can see in the close up photos everything was layered with some foam tape to keep that dimension. The title was cut from some left over Bold & Beautiful paper and kept plain to make it stand out from the other elements.

'Unforgettable' layout for 49 and Market

Hi there everyone, so glad you could join me again for another 49 and Market Design Team Project.

Today I am sharing this layout using the ever so gorgeous Dandelion Fields Laser Cut Sheet. Now I know I have told you about the Laser Cuts before but I just love them and they make for such a quick and easy layout but it still looks like you have spend hours creating it.


So by using lots of layering techniques I came up with this design.

So many gorgeous elements, just love that pop of yellow.

The close up photos really show off the layering process.

To be able to get this 3D effect I generally pop my photo on some cardboard to create height, that way I have got room to build all my embellishments, in this case the Laser Cuts.

Because the background paper has already got so many gorgeous designs and details I didn't add any more, this way the background paper shines in its own right.

I used Eclectic Pieces from the Captured Adventures paper collection for my background piece.

The piece I used for my photo mat is from the Extra Bonus Sheet, frame in the bottom left hand corner, they are the perfect size for a 3" x 4" photo.

And that is it, by just placing the Laser Cuts on my layout and playing around with the design, this is the end result, I hope you like.

Thanks so much for popping by and taking the time to read my post. I hope I was able to inspire you!

Until next time.....
