Just Add Ink Challenge #122

This week's challenge over a Just Add Ink is to check Delys Cram Blog to find something of hers that inspires you and then CASE her project.  She has so many gorgeous projects that it was hard to choose but I finally settled on her "You" scrapbook page. Here is Delys page

And now here is my CASE.  I had chosen this page because I thought it was a very simple layout but stunning. Little did I realise how, not exactly difficult - but more time consuming,  it would be to work out getting all those pieces put together.  Also, my original thoughts were to use the same sentiment stamp as Delys, however, as I have lent out this particular sentiment stamp to a good friend, I decided to change the sentiment to the lovely "You're in my thoughts, you're in my heart".   I am so glad I chose to CASE this layout because I am really pleased with the end result.  Thank you Just Add Ink and Delys Cram for your inspiration.

To create my "Always" banner along the bottom I punched out Confetti White Pennants with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and attached them to each other at the corners with Vintage Trinkets Button Brads.  I punched out the plain pennants in the DSP and affixed these to the back.    I also added a couple of Mini Library Clips and Hemp Twine and some stamped hearts.

Supplies used:  Cardstock - Confetti White and Early Espresso, DSP - Pocketful of Posies, Stamp Sets - Word Play and Tiny Tags, Punches - Petite Pennants Builder, Full Heart  and Jewellery Tag,  Dies - Timeless Type Junior Alphabet, Accessories - Glimmer Brads, Vintage Trinkets (Button Brads and Safety Pins), Mini Library Clips, Hemp Twine


  1. Wow, Tracey - this turned out GREAT! I love your layout, and the colours you used. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. Your page is fantastic Tracey. A wonderful case! I love your "Always" banner. Thanks for playing at JAI this week.

  3. What a great 'girlie' version of Delys' layout. Love all the little details on the banner. Thanks for joining in the challenge at JAI.

  4. Tracey this was the original layout that I was going to CASE of my husband but as I didn't have current photos I changed my mind. Now after your comments about the time it took to get it right I might have to pick my time to recreate this layout as I too love the look that Delys created with this page and I love your layout too. Thanks for joining in with this week's challenge at Just Add Ink.
