There are three responses to a piece of design — yes, no, and WOW! WOW is the one to aim for.


Alicia Barry, My Little Girl

Hi everyone, Alicia here with you today with some girly layouts to share with you.

The first one is a typically girly layout of my little princess. With two older brothers, it is so nice to have a little girl to scrap, especially with so many wonderful MHC flowers for inspiration.  I adore the Watermelon coloured flowers. They are such a gorgeous shade of pink, and team really well with paler shades too.

See how the black centres of the watermelon Rue flower works in so well with the black spots on the pretty Powder Puff flowers.

MHC supplies used:
Ruffles: brown and pink, Rue: watermelon, Whimsy: pink, Glitter mini roses: pink, Powder puff: citrus mix

My second layout for you today is of our little puppy Penny. She’s such a sweet dog, but it was a nice change to be able to snap this super cute photo of her. She is usually just a blur running around with the kids.  I loved this new paper I got from CHA and decided to use that as my inspiration, and of course, there is always a MHC  flower to match every project, and I love how you can match several different shaped flowers within one colour set. The yellow gives the whole project such a light summery feel.


I have used tight clusters of flowers to create a focal point around my photo, without the risk of cluttering the whole page.

Small glitter flowers are a great finish to a flower cluster.

Rather than having too many large flowers competing for attention, I stripped down the yellow flowers of its outer petals to create a smaller flower to compliment my top flower cluster.
