Half Size

What a horrible few hours I had over last night and this morning - I got a terrible upset stomach (not sure from what!), ventured into work but felt so queasy I came home before the day began. Feeling a lot better now and hoping to brave a bit of food which doesn't come in the form of dry toast later.

In the meantime, alongside getting on with some school work (within reach of the bathroom!) I put together a quick layout - my first ever 6x12 in fact. Apologies for slightly awful scan - there is no light to take pictures in my house though!

I can't believe how quick it was to make - there just isn't enough room to put too much on the page, so I had to be quite careful about what I chose to include and what I left out. It does mean that you can get away with only using a couple of embellishments, so you can choose quite nice ones (like the fuzzy ric rac on this layout which I adore!). The bits and pieces are mainly from the last Cocoa Daisy kit, and this is the first outing for my new Dymo labeller too. If anybody knows a good place to buy the tape from, please let on, I can't seem to find much anywhere.

I may have a go at another layout later, but probably back in the usual 12x12 format. I like these 6x12, they are perfect for small or slightly dodgy photos, but nothing quite beats the space you get to play with a normal sized page.


  1. Lovely socks :-) I saw Dymo Labeler tape in my ASDA the other day. Hoep you feel better soon! x

  2. lovely lo, the socks are great, i get tape from ebay, or the woodgrain one for karlotta! hope u feel better xx

  3. Fabby LO Chloe, i bet you start churning them out now! lol!

    I tend to get dymo from the bargain bin at staples quite often, or lidl get them in occassionally.

    Get some woodgrain stuff from Katy here...

  4. This is fab! I'm never sure if I want to scrap in 6x12 or not, I may have to take the plunge!

    I put white-core cardstock strips (such as DCWV)through my Dymo (need to be 9mm), then sand lightly, great effect :D

  5. I agree with Laura, Staples is great and I saw some reduced in my local one just the other day. A pack of 3 (red, black and blue) for £3.

    Love the LO hun it's gorgeous. And the class on my blog is Stories In Hand by Jessica Sprague. Registration is still open (just!) so if you're quick you can join.
