Today’s my last day as a guest designer for the Noel Blog. And I have enjoyed every minute!

When working on this layout I knew I wanted to use the rulers from the Crate Paper DIY Shop Measurement paper, but I pictured them arranged vertically on the page, neatly tied with a bow and topped with the burlap flower.

Totally different from this~


This is certainly not my original plan.

Once I added my pictures and started layering with the various elements from the Country Lane kit things shifted.

But, that’s what I love about using kits.

Everything is coordinated and takes the guess work out of what matches and works.

Burlap flower~


Wood veneer~


One of my favorite pieces is this wood veneer shape that I inked and stamped with a sentiment.

While this looks nothing like my original plan, I like it.

A lot.

  1. I love the natural feel of this layout Sara. The wood element and burlap flower really tie things nicely together. As always, your pictures are just wonderful!

  2. I wouldn’t want to have to prove it, but, I think that this may be one of my very favorite layouts you’ve ever done…I just love it!! Fortunately, I’m free to love ALL your layouts & each & every one can be (& probably is!) my very fav…I’m awful glad I don’t have to pick : ) !
