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

🙂 Ann

Well hi!

I’ve been pretty absent lately, sorting out some new ideas for Paper Pesto. Later this week I’ll be releasing a very limited project kit comprising of a double layout, single layout and 3 cards complete with full instructions and maybe even a video if I can figure out how to work it! The kit is based on the Early Bird range from Cosmo Cricket – one of my current favorites it is incredibly versatile. Here’s a little peak at the single layout:


For now though, I thought I share with you what I’ve been playing around with the last few weeks. These layouts are from the last 3 kits, June, May and April. It was really nice to open those boxes and create something with all my hard work now that I have some extra time on my hands =) The layouts from April (super fort and play) were half finished ones that I managed to complete several months later!


(whoops need to add my journalling to this one!) – It’s Isabella (3) holding Sophia (2 weeks) back in 2005!



Love making these lollipop flowers! They are so simple and effective.


A comparison layout of my two girls when they started kindy (3 years apart).


(eek don’t know what I was thinking with that heavy fringe!)

Love this photo, she is such a sweetie =)

Thanks for looking!

When life keeps you busy and you suddenly need a card, what do you do?

Whip out your trusty kit and your cuttlebug, mix in a few ingredients and whip up a card that will fit the bill perfectly!

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.
:-)  Ann
