Docrafts Blog Hop

Hi all!

Been making some projects using docrafts products especially for the Design Team Blog Hop. Scroll to the bottom of this post for links to my fellow members' blogs!

This first scrapbook page is using the Papermania Neon Collection. With this layout I thought I'd let you all know a little more about me. 
The background is using a leopard spot embossing folder with Neon pink ink. I did one sheet and the ink pad fell apart. I did another with neon paint but I ended up liking both so ripped them up and alternated between the two as a background.

Also this past week or so, docrafts have a sale on. And I mean a SALE. If you haven't already checked it out, I definitely recommend it. My haul is pictured below and it came to just £20.74. 
I particularly wanted the A4 die cut and paper packs - they're normally £12 each so a bit much for my limit of spending £20 a month on supplies.. (not that I ever stick to that...). And of course I love playing around with frames so I got some of those too.

Here's a page I made using the Papermania Nature's Gallery A4 die cut & paper pack. My boyfriend and I often go to Lakeside on sunny days, there's a little outlet and a lake to walk around.  There's bird species there that you don't normally see such as Great Crested Grebes and Gadwalls and it's rather nice. I used the die cuts as a border, like you're seeing the birds through the undergrowth. 
And lastly a set of cards made with the Bellissima die cut & paper pack. This collection is lovely for card making, lovely colours, but it would also work on a girly scrapbook layout or something floral. I'm not really a card maker but with this set it's all so easy to put together to make wonderful cards.

Thank you for hopping by, and please check out my fellow Design Team members' blogs! 


  1. Wow Emilie, fab stash of goodies. I'm really enjoying your Lakeside layout, the fern border is such a clever touch! Well, it's half seven on Saturday morning, where shall I hop off to next? Katie's blog methinks...

  2. Emilie, these projects are all wonderful! I love that you've made an actual, physical 'about me' page! It's such a fantastic idea!! Your Nature's Gallery layout is really eyecatching and full of gorgeous detail, and I love your Bellissima cards too – it has been one of my fave ranges to craft with. As you say, it's really easy to make pretty cards with all the elements in the pack! x
