Le Petit Foyer

Lately, I've been learning to be a better blogger by taking clearer photos to go with blog posts, scheduling them on a weekly basis and of course staying extremely motivated to create things that will allow me to continue sharing layouts and ideas. So bear with me!

This week I'm sharing a layout I made about one of my fave places in my apartment, my foyer. It happens to meet two challenges on Two Peas. Check out the challenges or submit your layouts here: Studio Calico and Love Bug: Stitch a shape on your page.

About my foyer: it is a bit small and not at all fancy, but it's mine and I love it. Every time I come home, I'm greeted by some of my favorite photos on my bright sunny yellow Trollsta sideboard from Ikea and no matter how long my day was, it brings a smile to my face.


Used in this layout: pattern papers from Studio Calico, Hambly Screen Prints; mist by Studio Calico's Mister Huey; stamps from Studio Calico, A Muse; bird rub-ons by Studio Calico; embroidery floss by DMC; and cardstock from Bazzill Basics and Close To My Heart.

Here's a closer look. Label pennants made by stitching Studio Calico stamped labels:

Journaling: 'Every time I walk into my apartment, I leave the rest of the world behind.'

Hope you enjoyed my layout and the challenges from Two Peas!

By the way, I'm now on Pinterest and totally loving it. To the right of this post, you'll find all of my boards. Check them out and let me know if the pics inspire you the way they did for me!
