The inspiration for this layout came from the readers design challenge over on the Aussie Scrap Source blog - and the design concept/challenge is Rhythm and Repitition. You could base your layout on your own design or use one of the Pagemaps or Cardmaps sketches that feature repitition.
I went with this sketch....
and turned it on its side....to get this:
I handcut the little hexagons from the "Collect" pp in the Magpie range & then mounted them in both cream & black cardstock....in place of the hearts on the sketch, then stiched across them in red stitching.
I've used another of the cute little kraft tags from the Jenni Bowlin printed tags pack...I just love the size of these cute little tags :)
And I've also used the funky American Crafts DIY thickers again, with the black Spark tinsel sprinkled over the top....these were a lot of fun to play with...and of course, you could use just about anything that you already may have in your stash to decorate the DIY thickers with....glitter, flock, sand...the ideas could be endless!

I've really enjoyed scrapping with this Jenni Bowlin range...and must admit that each layout came together alot easier than what I thought they would...and I'm totally chuffed at the amount of layouts I've got from my kit! So, all in all, this range has been a pleasant surprise & a lot of fun to scrap with.
