For the Love of Books | Currently Reading May 2023

Kitty Boo CraftAway Spring 2023 | What I Made | Part Four

The Kitty Boo CraftAway was a free-flow, work-at-your-own-speed kind of Crop (the best kind) and delegates had plenty of options to choose from. I usually avoid anything that includes backfilling a cut file, but I really like how this finished page looks. It probably helps that I love these photos of The Boy from 2010 … Continue reading Kitty Boo CraftAway Spring 2023 | What I Made | Part Four

As stated yesterday, the Kitty Boo CraftAway was a free-flow, work-at-your-own-speed kind of Crop (the best kind) and delegates had plenty of options to choose from. Here's a look at two more creations. I dithered about making the layout below, because I wasn't sure about the colours. But now that's it's finished, I really like … Continue reading Kitty Boo CraftAway Spring 2023 | What I Made | Part 2

Kitty Boo CraftAway Spring 2023 | What I Made | Part One

The Kitty Boo CraftAway was a free-flow, work-at-your-own-speed kind of Crop (the best kind) and delegates had plenty of options to choose from. Here's a look at some of what I made. This layout above is destined for the New York City album - it's rare for me to feature on a page by myself. … Continue reading Kitty Boo CraftAway Spring 2023 | What I Made | Part One
