I am loving these hops....why....because I am a pretty paper and embellishment hoarder....I often fall in absolute LOVE with a collection....then sit and look at it....afraid to use it!  You too??  Or am I alone in this?!!  My project today uses some Farmhouse Paper Co. goodies:

I love those paper clip numbers....and another hoard item?  The cork pieces from Studio Calico and the cork alpha from AC Thickers.  All these goodies are seeing some project love! 

Here's a closer peek:

Have a great weekend!!!  Remember to create something wonderful! 


  1. Great layouts Laura. I have some of the items you used in my stash too, guess I need to use them....

  2. Lovely two page layout! Great masculine page.

  3. Awesome layout, Love how you used the collection! It's a really great masculine layout!

  4. great 2 pgr and love the pops of cork throughout it!!!!

  5. Wow, love this masculine layout! And kudos to you for using those clips! I have a ton of clips but can't say that I've ever used them (oh, maybe one time?). Hanging my head in shame but am motivated to pull out some shaped clips and start crafting!

  6. Wow what a wonderful masculine layout! Kudos to you for using those number clips because they add such a great touch. I admit to having a ton of shaped clips in my stash and can't even remember when I used them (if ever). You have motivated me to pull them out and give them another look!

  7. This is such a cool layout with all the cork embellishments and the mixed patterns. Love the inked edges that give a grungy look to your design!

  8. Great layout. I like how you used your stash of cork and paper clip numbers.
