On Top Of The World || Scrapbook Layout || OneCanoeTwo 'Hazelwood'

Happy Saturday!

I'm back with my usual Saturday 'Emily Scraps For Herself'' post. I love making DT projects but it's always nice to make something using products I have treated myself to and this week it's no different.

With one thing and another I'm still in the middle of scrapping my pictures from a visit to Edinburgh in January. The final deadlines at uni are this month and I like to get things out of the way so I've been doing things for that rather than crafting, promising myself and my boyfriend that we can take some time out once it's all finished to have some trips out and find ourselves again before we 'settle down'.

Here is my layout. In Edinburgh Nathan and I climbed Arthur's Seat and took a selfie at the top. You can just see the city behind us. Still can't believe we climbed all the way up there! Obviously I'm silly and left my sunglasses in the hotel. (Least I didn't forget them when we went to the Costa del SOL, eh Nathan?)

For this layout I used the OneCanoeTwo 'Hazelwood' collection from American Crafts. I have almost every item from this collection, I absolutely adore it. This paper really caught my eye, I just love the bright colours. Could I make a layout using something so bright as a backdrop? Of course!

I printed my picture at 2x3" and stuck it behind a frame. I had some bits of a 12x12" vellum sheet by Webster's Pages left, it's kind of adventure themed, I used the map from the sheet and also fussy cut some arrows from it too. The rest of the arrows are fussy cut from the little strip from the bottom of the background paper. I arranged the arrows to point towards my picture. The frames in the bottom right corner are, I think, by Simple Stories. I used one of my train tickets behind one and stamped the date on the other using the Hazelwood date stamp.

The Thickers are 'Fancy Free' by Paige Evans, when I got them I was intimidated by their size but they work so well on this layout as they do not get 'lost' in the backing paper.

I finished off the layout by adding Hazelwood ephemera and stickers and some of the adorable Shimelle 'Go Now Go' heart stickers.

Thanks for stopping by!
