National Scrapbook Day NSD2014 With Wear Crafts - Layered Layouts With Scrappyjen

National Scrapbook Day NSD2014 With Wear Crafts - Layered Layouts With Scrappyjen

I am a girl of two halves and many layers.... (well actually many more than two halves, but let's just focus on two).
There is the organised, professional, in control side - represented here.
 The cluster of journaling cards is very me - I always have too many things on the go but I am pretty good at multi tasking... and there has to be a little floral somewhere. I like to show different options as we all have different tastes and colour preferences, so here is the journaling card cluster mounted on the reverse of the dark paper you can see above.
Totally changes the look. Not a distressed edge, inked part or bit of fussy cutting in sight.

Then there is the girly, flowery, pink, sparkly, blousy, Gary Barlow infatuated (American friends, google him - you will fall in love, but he is mine), fluffy side - represented here.
My roots are decoupage, as you can see from the scrunched flowers. I adore fussy cutting - it should be available on the NHS as it is the best therapy there is. And I am getting into this pasty stuff too.

So, these are the bare basic layouts.... pop back on Monday to see them finished. That should give you plenty of time. So,how many sides do you have? Can you represent all your layers in a layout? Over to you... make a layout of many layers and make sure you share!

And if you fancy a canny kit... here it is
