Extra, Extra!

This week at The Studio was my week for the Wednesday Extra. I was having a think what I could do for it and was running out of ideas that haven't been done already! While I was looking around for ideas I had a flash of inspiration and thought that I haven't seen anyone try paper weaving in scrapping so I thought I would give it a try! It's quick and easy to do but looks good and it uses up lots of scraps of paper that are lurking in your stash! Here are the layouts I made for it I wanted to do 2 really different layout to show different ways of using weaving on your layouts.
I'm sure most of us did paper weaving at school at some point so I put together a little tutorial to remind you how to do it if you want to take a look it's here.
For this first one I made a big patch of paper weaving with the lovely Cosmo Togetherness papers, they seem to be a favourite of mine at the moment!!
The second one I made small patches of weaving with thinner stripes of paper. This is one of these layout that really does look better in real life!! I've taken loads of photos of it trying to get a better photo of it but it doesn't get any better than this!
I really like this layout in real life, it's a shame it doesn't look that great here, never mind, it looks good in the album!
If you do give it a go I love to see it, put a link in the comments.

Today I have spend the day up to my ears in pink icing!! I was asked to make a 'Pepper Pig' Birthday cake for my nephew's best friend. I don't know if you've ever seen what Pepper looks like but she's a funny little character! Here's the cake I made!

I spent quite a while on it today to get it to look right but Pepper doesn't really look right anyway!!! I'm quite pleased with how it turned out in the end, I really hope Alexa likes it!

More scrapping planned for the weekend so I should have lots to show later!
Thank you very much for your comments, they brighten up my day!!

Have a lovely weekend whatever you get up to! xx


  1. Anna, that's one cool cake. You really have a talent there : )
    Have a lovely weekend x

  2. Both layouts look great, I can tell the white one will look better in real life! I get so frustrated sometimes when I can't get my scrapbook pages to photograph the way I want them too, and I always find it especially hard with white pages.

    The cake looks great too, my daughter (aged 2 and a half) would love it! xx


Please leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think!
