Happy Mail and a Starting Point

I used another of Shimelle Laine's starting points to make a further dent in my Central High kit last night. Hubby was watching 'Taken' on TV so I sat with him and made a start on this layout.

I love the green on green floral Kesiart paper so I am trying not to cover too much of the rest of it up once I start adding photos and embellishment. I can say that I have added a photo from Christmas Day last year to this starting point and I have pulled out my October Afternoon Christmas supplies from last year that did not arrive until well after Christmas. I have really had some fun mixing and matching these papers this time.

The mail fairies must have seen what I was up to as I received the perfect happy mail this morning. My order of six rolls of washi from Freckled Fawn.

Here is the  Christmas selection which I think will be a perfect addition to my starting point and very useful when it comes time to wrap some presents.

I also picked up two of their new lines that they designed in house. The bottom roll is potty people and the top is a fantastic selection of hearts and arrows. I love them both!

I was quite taken with the colours in Shimelle's original starting point so thought I would share it here as it is the right time of year for North Americans especially to make use of these colours.

I have said it before and I will surely say it again - I cannot get enough of these starting points!


  1. ooh, i'll have to check out those Starting Points. Sounds like a good way for me to get over my fear of regular scrapbooking :)

  2. Can't wait to see the finished product!!!
