Our Great London Adventure

Made this 2 pager for the Mercy Tiara 27 Day challenge for May - scrapbook with at least 3 photos, 1 being 4"x6".  
This was inspired by this single page made by Mandy Reedyk from Mandy Reedyk Happy Scrappin.  I fell in love with the cityscape silhouettes she cut from grey cardstock and vellum using a Mama Elephant die and wanted to replicate that look with my most favorite skyline of all, the London skyline.  In comes the helpful hubby, who is so much better at Photoshop and spacial things than I am.  He spent a couple hours on the weekend laying out different London iconic architecture in a pattern of layered silhouettes which I then traced and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  Total LOVE.

I also used an Ali Edwards digital brush, Follow Your Heart, to trace and cut the word adventure and Studio AE journal card which I rounded corners. Other supplies include Stylist Thickers (which I colored darker with Stazon in Stone Grey) London Memories Air Mail Arrows paper by Scrapbook Customs, enamel heart from Amy Tangerine, and Colección London stamps by lora bailora.

Those intricate silhouettes cut so well and I love them so much, I'm doing a similar layout with them cut in various vellums for some night pictures from our trip.  Stay tuned!


  1. This is just too good ... I love it all!! Thanks for showing & sharing all the little details. And how great is it that your husband helped to create the skyline for you?! Amazeballs.

    1. Thanks Karen! Yeah he saved me from lots of hairpulling and frustration and spending 10 times as long as he did!
