Morning all well my next layouts from the gorgeous 12 Pledges kit from Wear Crafts for July, at a cost of £5 for the kit and 95p for each of the two sheets of glittery paper I was able to create 5 layouts, I've shared two already so for your next installment.

The glittery papers really are beautiful and with a simple frame border, a few embellishments and a matted photo this page was soon complete.  Documenting a beautiful gift from an amazing lady - you know who you are!

Then a change in tempo on the next, a lot more masculine, I gutted the centre of the paper to use elsewhere, used half the doily element that came with the kit and decided to highlight some of the words to create the title of the layout.  How, you may ask?  By handstitching around some letters with the ample (more than ample) stock of embroidery thread from my cross stitch days.  This layout documents a giant draughts game played by hubby and said 13 year old when we visited the Wold's Lavender place earlier in the year!

And just to show you how effective this can be - an up close shot of the title!

So want to get your hand on this kit then head over to Jen's wonderful online shop!
