I cut it up!

Yep, I finally cut up my Basic Grey Origins, which I must have had at least 3 months... I was inspired to make that first cut after seeing some lovely LOs using these papers on my friend Isabelle's blog.

Simple LO using a picture I took of chipmunk in New England. I thought these little critters were so adorable and cute (I am sure they are so common as to be unexceptional in the US but I'd only seen one once before in California so for me it was interesting enough to get out the camera!). I must say I do like the spring-like colours of these papers. No stamping on this LO for once - I just used the BG papers and stickers apart from the lettering
We had an amazing day yesterday at the Birdland zoo. I took loads of pics with my new compact camera (bday pressie from my dearest darling) so plenty of scrapping opportunities there!
(ETA I took this pic in the garden and it appears a small bug has alighted on my page! That isn't part of the design LOL).


  1. Beautiful page Katy, love the papers, image and design. The bug in the picture looks great, I thought you had made it until I read further........

  2. Well done 'the first cut is always the hardest'
    but a beautiful result so well worth all that angst,
    I love the contrasting border, fabulous xx

  3. Fabulous layout! He's so cute! I totally commiserate with the inability to cut up BasicGrey papers...they are just too pretty!

  4. Beautiful page Katy, well done for taking the plunge and cutting into your precious Basic Grey. I'm sure you have some leftovers for another day.

  5. Isn't it something when we have this gorgeous paper and we don't want to actually CUT it to use it? I have been having the same issue with my latest Studio Calico kit! I've been trying to find the PPs I like best and adding them to a shopping cart though, so in effect I'm replacing them LOL.
    Cute layout. The BG Origins is perfect for the photo.

  6. Hi, I just came over from Gingersnap and wanted to say your work is lovely!!!
