1 more & Goodbye – Ann McLachlan

July 10, 2009


This is my very last layout.

When my daughter was three she loved going to the park and going up and down on the slide.

When it was time to go home she would look at me with the cutest smile and say ..

“Just one more mum?”

That one would always turn into nine or ten.

This is also a goodbye from me, as Kate takes Paper Pesto in a new direction I am also moving on to other things.

I have been with Kate since Paper Pesto began and i want to say “Thank You” to Kate for everything that we have shared over the last ….Gosh! almost 2 years!

It has been an amazing experience and i thank you for that.

Kate i wish you all the best for your new venture, may it be all you want it to be and the first kit looks fantastic!

Thanks also to the wonderful ladies on the design team who have been an absolute pleasure to work with over the last 5 months.

Bye All

Cakes – Lesley Cooper

Lesley sent us this wonderful masculine themed layout….


She says…

As soft and beautiful as this kit was, there were also perfect elements for
this boy page.

I used one of the patterned papers for the background and used the neutral
and orange cardstocks for journaling and mats and the shape (cut with the
mm slice). I used some of the Hambly clear stickers too as well as the
chipboard numbers and the crystal brads. I added orange thickers alphas for
the title.


Thanks Lesley!
Have a great weekend everyone.

Love the torn and distressed edges Hannah. A great way to capture one of those ‘crazy’ faces kids seem to pull whenver we get the Camera out!

Heres another layout from Lesley and yes she has used
the bird for the third time!....Now that's making good
use of the kit!
Lesley found this quote which was just perfect for her
daughter and the title complimented the bird nicely.
She put the sticker negative on to acetate (also in the kit) and cut
around the outline.
She then added some of the words from the quote onto
the acetate using the rub on alphabet, added adhesive
to the back of the acetate and added micro beads.
She also stamped some leaves onto the tissue paper from
the kit to use as well.


Nicely done Lesley!

My Nieces – Hannah Blair

Using the other adorable die-cut paper in this months kit Hannah has created this layout of her sweet nieces. She’s made the lollipop flower and the leaves herself and painted her chipboard alpha green to coordinate. That’s one thing I love about plain chipboard, it’s so easy to customise for your page.

Hope you all have a great week!

Kate =)

How gorgeous is this!!?

Lesley says:

Of course I had to use the sticker negative of the bird! I peeled off the negative and placed it onto my background cardstock to use as a mask. I stamped over it and then glimmer misted it in silver. I peeled off the negative sticker (and I have put that on to some acetate and cut around it but thats for another use!). I have also used the acetate to stamp a dandelion on it for an embellishment. I have used some of the clear Hambly stickers to frame the photo.

Have a great weekend everyone,

Family Ties – Ann McLachlan

June 18, 2009

It looks like the Making Memories Die Cut Artisan Flower Patch paper is the clear favourite from this months kit….lol

Like Hannah and Leslie IĀ  couldn’t wait to start with this paper first.

family ties

I have stamped on the transparencies with Staz-on ink, using black and timber brown.

Both the large circle and the flourishes were stamped.

The humming bird and the title have been cut using my Cricut.
