Treasured Memories


I've been trying really hard to use up paper in my stash! I'm trying to resist buying any new collections until I make a hole in what I've got........I tell you, its a real challenge not to be tempted by all the gorgeous papers out there.
 When I was in Canada, 'Michaels' was having a "Hot buy" on papers didn't help that the store was walking distance from the Hotel we were staying in. Well, I resisted for 2 days, then after I worked out where all the weight could be distributed it was an easy decision! So yes, I had a spend up!

Anyway on to my layout......Using a mix of papers from old Kaiser Collections. I handmade the flowers using my cricut which I combined with kaiser bling and resin flowers.

I really liked the colour combo, from the inspiration photo ....... so I stuck with it!
I'm entering this layout in Kaiser Saturday Sketch #2

Here's the pretty layout sketch by Naomi Cox.... for inspiration.

So nice of you to visit.....have a fabulous weekend!



  1. Well you gave in!! hehe!! believe it or not I did not buy any papers at the craft show.. SOOOO wanted to.. saw the stunning maya road papers and they are gorgeous.. but i just decided not to get any.. I do wish I had, but like you I am trying to use up what I have.. but somehow it does not seem to be making much of a dent!! Always love your layouts, they have an elegance and prettyness to them.. and I love how kaiser papers can mix and match too.. Have a wonderful weekend.. I am off up the coast to see my daughter!! I hope the sun comes out!!

  2. Beautiful Layouts Tracey! I too am trying to use my stash but finding it hard to use patterned paper at the moment

  5. Love your layout. Great take on the sketch. And I sure like the colours you chose. Your flowers you made are so great. Have a terrific weekend.

  6. Fabulous papers and I love the photo! I know what you mean about the papers, but now every time I go into Michaels (not too often these days) I resist the urge to look at the papers, as I have so many and also so many digital papers that I really don't need anymore. However, when on holiday, it seems hard to resist and I always come back with more LOL! Have a great weekend.

  7. This is fabulous Tracey. We all sympathise re the paper. I gave up and cleared mine out. Almost immediately, something else becomes old though!

  8. Your layout is gorgeous (much better than the inspirational one. I need to use some of my scraps too, but it never seems to work.

  9. Loving your layout Tracey - and the great photo too! Your pages are always soooo pretty. Hope you are all keeping well down in Oz! We are at last getting some decent weather here in Scotland - won't last long though! Take care dear friend... Hugs xx

  10. You're definitely a talented one! your flowers are awesome.
