Crop in the Country | Kitty Boo Crafts | What I Created | Part One

All the classes available at the Kitty Boo CraftAway were self-paced and festive-themed. I spent most of Saturday making the mini book (which much, much longer than anticipated) and by late afternoon, I was ready to tackle something else.

The first 12×12 spread was a simple grid pattern and I used photos from a Christmas visit to North East Scotland in 2008. If you are curious as to where we were, it’s Brodie Castle.

The wood title was supposed to be painted, but I used a felt-tip pen once I was home. 🙂 The border was supposed to be plain running stitch, but I was halfway round with back stitch before I realised; the Best Friend kindly gave me her thread so I would have enough to finish.

For my second spread I chose a design with tabs in a row. The grey lined paper should have been vertical, not horizontal. But no matter, the mistake provided a space for a spot of journaling. 🙂

The third design was to create a bauble design using a seemingly random collection of festive phrases. The photo is from 2009’s visit to Santa.

  1. Each layout is fantastic in design & embellishment placement (love me a grid layout & of late I’m fixated with evergreen tree shapes) . I think I have to scrap lift all of these, but the last one in particular solves a “what do I do will all these word strips?” How kind of B/F to give you her thread.

    1. Don’t forget to show me your scraplifts! And as for my BF, she owed me after mistakenly taking my pack of embellishments and having me scrabbling around for ages looking for them!

  2. Absolutely beautiful – what a busy and productive weekend you had! They are all lovely but I think the second one is my favourite. I love the tabs going across and those lovely embellishments.
