'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
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!

Please visit the 49 and Market website for products and ideas!

Until next time.....

Adore layout for 49 and Market

Hi there friends and welcome back to my blog where I would like to share another easy 'Laser Cut Sheet' creation.


I once again worked with the design on the paper and again used a sheet from the 'Sweet Reflections' paper collection.
On this layout I mainly used the 'Laser Cuts' from the 'Sweet Reflections' paper collection and I also used the backing sheet that comes with the 'Laser Cuts' and cut out the frame which I layered behind the photo to the right.
Also behind the photo I added some 'Burlap Ribbon' for added interest and some dimension. I really love using this product!
I decided I wanted to continue the branches already printed on the paper so I added the ones from the 'Laser Cut Sheet' to the right hand side to keep the momentum. That was the base of my design and I continued adding other elements to it but not too many as I wanted to keep it nice and airy.
I added the 'Seaside Blooms' and 'Stargazer' flowers and my '2Crafty Chipboard' title and covered it in red metallic embossing powder. I decided on placing it right on top of the white 'Seaside Bloom' to make it stand out.
So I set out to keep it nice and clean and I think I managed that alright. Again the 'Laser Cuts' do a fantastic job on their own.

Products used on the layout:

'Sweet Reflections' Paper Collection - Reflections

'Sweet Reflections' Laser Cuts

Bonus Sheet that comes with the Laser Cuts.

'Stargazer' - Simply white

'Seaside Blooms' - Cotton

Burlap Ribbon - Natural

There you have it, another simple and easy layout done, hope I was able to inspire you in some way.
Until next time....

Beauty layout for 49 and Market

Good morning 49 and Market friends and welcome so glad you could join me.
Today I would like to share with you this layout which was super quick to put together as I used the beautiful and very handy Laser Cuts!


When I start a layout I always like to work with the design already on the printed paper. 49 and Market have a wonderful selection of beautiful paper collections so it is always a pleasure working with them.
So on this layout I mainly used the 'Tropical Paradise' Laser Cuts.
I decided where to place my photo on the background paper by incorporating the gorgeous design element on the left hand side of the paper. I didn't want to completely cover it up so tried to add it to my design.
Once I added the photo I popped out my chosen elements from the 'Laser Cut Sheet' and started playing with my design.
This took a little while as I always chip and change my mind but eventually it came together just the way I liked it, to me it is all about balance and I often even take a photo of my work before I commit to it. For some reason I find it easier to pick up on design flaws by looking at a picture of my work.
To finish off, I added just a couple of flowers and leaves from the 'Botanical Potpourri' range and last but not least the '2Crafty Chipboard' title to which I simply added some white embossing powder.

Products Used on this project:

'Tropical Paradise' Laser Cut Sheet

'Sweet Reflections' paper Collection - Observation

'Sweet Reflections' Laser Cut Sheet

'Botanical Potpourri - Marina

So that is it and it just goes to show you do not need a lot of product to make a beautiful page.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Until next time....
