A weekend with " You are beautiful" layout

Helloooooooo


  Well I have been on a little scrapbooking hiatus. 



I have had so much happening in my personal life right now. Somethings and events that have totally thrown me for six.

So it has had me thinking A LOT about the priorities in my life, along with my scrapbooking.

 When I started scrapbooking I started because I wanted to capture and remember the special moments in my daughter's life. But then I very quickly became addicted to the dark side of scrapbooking.. lol.. I KNOW you all KNOW what I am talking about!! The brand new releases that seemed to be bigger and better than the last, and then within those releases all the new products that I just HAD TO HAVE and in every which colour way.  Before I knew it I wasn't scrapbooking instead I became a collector of scrapbooking product. This went on for a long time. But then about few years ago I decided to jump back in as I had a renewed love and passion for this awesome hobby! I have managed to find a group of ladies that are " my people" who encourage me and in both my scrapbooking and my personal life.

I have been so incredibly lucky also in my "Scrapbooking Career" so to speak.. I have been privileged to work for companies that I adore as a designer, have taught ladies that share the same passion and have also become a Scrapbooking Memories Magazine Master back in 2013.That for sure was a HUGE highlight for me!!

But like somethings in life we can take on to much and need to find ways to peel it back  a little. Somehow scrapbooking has become that for me. So I stopped blogging, stopped scrapbooking, stopped teaching ,jumped off social media and gave up a couple of my design team commitments. 

So I have now had a few months off and I can honestly say that my approach to this craft that I love so much has changed.

I am back to scrapbooking and creating because I want to - not because I have to!! 

I am just free to create and play.. 

I also now am only designing for the amazing company that is BoBunny.. My scrapy home for almost three years!! 

So with all that said, I would love to share with you today a BoBunny layout I made with the gorgeous Enchanted Harvest collection . As soon as laid eyes on the Enchanted Harvest Butterflies paper,I knew instantly I wanted to fussy cut the butterflies out. 

You are beautiful you are worth more then you know layout by Bernii Miller using the Enchanted harvest collection.


I also used the "Rough it up" stamp from BoBunny to help create the background. I stamped first and then with some water colour I went over the top of the stamped images to blend them in some more. 

You are beautiful you are worth more then you know layout by Bernii Miller using the Enchanted harvest collection.

Till next time

  1. Hi Bernii! I saw your page over at Paper People on FB so thought I'd swing by. I really like the water colours and stamping in the background and all the butterfly's seem perfectly placed. The black splot's of ink are cool too. Did you fussy-cut each butterfly out of the Bo Bunny patterned paper? I actually work at a scrapbook store in Edmonton, Alberta and your style would fit right in! Cheers
