Winnie & Walter Leading Lady - Week 4, Scrapping Fun!

Hi there Winnie and Walter friends and fans, so soon the month has flown by, and I have had a blast! Happy and sad to be bringing you my fourth and final installment of Winnie and Walter Leading Lady inspiration, but the best news is, not long to wait til the next fabulous Winnie and Walter new release!

For my final week, I thought I'd go back to my paper crafting origins and bring you some scrapbook layouts featuring Winnie and Walter.

SCRAPPING FUN!

First up, a layout about My Happy Place, featuring Winnie and Walter The Big, the Bold and the HappyThe Big, the Bold and FunThe Big, the Bold and Blessingsand The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect stamps with The Big, the Bold and Seasons cut file. Layout inspired by Stuck Sketches September Anniversary Challenge (see below).

In this layout I focused on keeping my sets of three elements in a triangle, focused on the photo, for example three The Big, the Bold and Seasons cut file suns, three patterned paper circles, three asterisks, and each patterned paper/colour also appears three times in a triangle. The "my happy", "so many joyful memories" and "family time at the beach and date" are all created from a combination of Winnie and Walter stamps mentioned above. The base paper is Pink Paislee, with the other papers a combination of American Crafts, Bo Bunny and Simple Stories. The mis-matched "place" is covered with Simple Stories woodgrain paper, to tie in with the painted wooden beach huts.

Next up, a more CAS layout about my Autumn daughter, featuring Winnie and Walter Digital Elements A Tree for All Seasons tree and leaves, together with A Tree for All Seasons stamped leaves and small sentiment and The Big, The Bold and Seasons Autumn sentiment. Layout inspired by Creative Scrappers Sketch #277 and 1-2-3 Get Scrappy Lots of leaves, Brown background, Long title (see below).

The large A Tree for All Seasons tree was cut out in reverse from Pebbles patterned paper and a sheet of scrap paper. I used the scrap paper version as a guide for stamping the leaves on the kraft background. To achieve more of an Autumn effect with variations in the colour of the leaves, I stamped them in Momento Luxe Morocco, and rocked the stamp from side to side or top to bottom as I was stamping, rather than stamping straight down as I normally would. The fussy cut leaves are a base of watercolour paper with Luminarte paints, the smaller ones are overstamped in Momento Luxe Lilac Posies, and the larger one was fussy cut using the cut-file template from last weeks Season Shakers. The sentiments were also stamped in Momento Luxe Lilac Posies.



Last but not least...
I am the first to admit I am a TOTAL novice at digital scrapbooking, but when Walter and Winnie have such gorgeous digital elements at such reasonable prices (you can even download the digital elements I used for FREE!), how could I resist giving it a go. I am so glad I did, as this A4 sized layout took me all of 5 minutes to create in Word (yes, that's how much of a novice I am LOL!), and being digital it you can print it out any size you wish! The background, glitter buck and two sentiments are all from the Winnie and Walter The Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1: Holiday Mint Add-On.
Kinda makes me wish it was Christmas already!


Remember, it's your last week to leave a comment here on my blog to be in the running for a fabulous Winnie and Walter $30 gift voucher.
