When your mojo goes walkabout... By Alison Callcott

Our talented design team member Alison has been busy lately. She has been feeling a little uninspired by her photos, but with all the wonderful product out here, she didn't want to miss out on creating gorgeous layouts anyway.

So, what's a girl to do?

Create a beautiful layout without photos of course!

How lovely is it? It just screams family road trips and outdoor picnics to me...

It is also a wonderful example of how you can use products that are "themed" for something completely different. Would you believe that these papers are actually Christmas papers? They are! They're the Crate Paper "North Pole" collection.

Alison has used the reverse of the papers to create this wonderfully retro LO.

If you would like to recreate this LO for your very own, check out the product list Alison has supplied!

Crate Paper 'North Pole' Collection
- Pine (reverse)
- Scarf (reverse)
- Frosty (reverse)
- Peppermint (reverse)

Chipboard and JAC paper

Cuttlebug Harlequin die

Crafty Secrets Childhood Images & Journal Notes

Scenic Route Die-Cut Sheet - Office Arrow (used as template)

Fundamental Accents

VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk inkpad

October Afternoon Country Fair - Journaling Cards

Inkssentials Glossy Accents

And sometimes, after feeling like you were mojo-less, just creating something without photos will bring to mind the perfect photo to use! Have a look at Alison's finished LO. Completely perfect don't you think?

A big thankyou to Alison for this great layout and inspiration!
