Favourites of 2012

I love reflecting back on my creations for the year, pulling out my favourites and giving them another spin :-). 

I think my favourite techniques/products this year were:
 - Pennant shapes.  Just. Can't. Stop. Cutting everything into PENNANTS LOL!!!
- Clustering.  Things don't look 'right' unless they are clustered.
- Flowers - I don't think there's a page without at least one...
- I seem to favour white cardstock backgrounds too ... love them :-)
- Matting the whole page with a contrast colour - many of my pages featured this.

So, here are a few of my favourite pages ... in no particular order ...


LOVE non-traditional Christmas colours like this one ...

and this one:


Love this pic of my little man:
(found a use for some really OLD thickers too!)


Bright colours on white backgrounds:

 
Clustered flowers ... and double page matting ...



One of my favourite paper ranges for the year ... Carta Bella ...
Love the pop of black:


A boy page from a girly paper range (Crate Paper Pretty Party)

Thanks for visiting!  I'm looking forward to a scrappy 2013 :-)
Happy New Year!!
